Description

Application

Angelicin, an angular furocoumarin, may be used as a photoactivatable molecule that reacts with DNA and unsaturated fatty acids to form monoadducts. Angelicin may be studied as a potential phototherapeutic and to understand its mechanisms of action and effects on RNA and DNA synthesis.

Packaging

10, 25 mg in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Angular furocoumarin with diverse photobiological effects. Upon long-wavelength UV irradiation, forms monoadduct with double-stranded DNA and reacts with unsaturated fatty acids. Inhibits DNA and RNA synthesis and cell replication in Ehrlich ascites tumor cells.
