Description

General description

Flavonoids belong to polyphenolic class of compounds. They play crucial role in biological activities which include tumor growth inhibition and chemoprevention. Apigenin is a plant flavonoid mostly used to inhibit ornithine decarboxylase activity and skin tumor.

Application

It may be used as internal standard for determining peurarin and its metabolites, using LC-ESI-MS/MS, in blood and urine of rats.

Biochem/physiol Actions

A plant flavonoid that has been found to inhibit cell proliferation by arresting the cell cycle at the G2/M phase. Inhibition of growth through cell cycle arrest and induction of apoptosis appear to be related to induction of p53. Inhibits PMA-mediated tumor promotion by inhibiting protein kinase C and the resulting suppression of oncogene expression. It has also been reported to inhibit topoisomerase I-catalyzed DNA re-ligation and enhance gap junctional intercellular communication.
