Farnesylacetone is a natural terpene extracted from androgenic glands of the crustacean Carcinus maenas and is capable of inhibiting proliferation, notably in transformed mammalian cells. Flow cytometry with three lipophilic probes, diphenylhexatriene, trimethylammonium-diphenylhexatriene, and Nile red, has revealed modifications of...

Farnesylacetone (C18 H30 0) is a male hormone extracted from the androgenic gland of crab, Carcinus maenas. Appropriate enzymatic assays, as well as spectrophotometric studies, indicate that micromolar concentrations of farnesylacetone interact with the electron transport pathway of rat liver...
