Biochem/physiol Actions

Chrysin is a flavonoid and an analog of apigenin. It inhibits aromatase and also suppresses human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) activation in models with latent infection. Chrysin exhibits anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant effects. This molecule induces apoptosis in various cells, thereby exhibiting cancer chemopreventive activity. Chrysin can modulate the activity of GABAA (Type-A γ-aminobutyric acid) and GABAC receptors, it downregulates expression of PCNA (proliferating cell nuclear antigen), reduces activity of CDK2 (cyclin-dependent kinase 2) and CDK4 and induces p38-MAPK (mitogen-activated protein kinase) activation.
