Catalog Number: 1770
Chemical Name: (7aS,13aS)-13,13a-Dihydro-9,10-dimethoxy-3,3-dimethyl-3H-bis[1]benzopyrano[3,4-b:6',5'-e]pyran-7(7aH)-one
Biological Activity
Anticancer and antiviral agent; chemopreventive and pro-apoptotic. Inhibits phorbol ester-induced ornithine decarboxylase and NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase activities (IC50 values are 11 and 6.9 nM respectively). Inhibits PI 3-kinase and reduces pAkt levels in pre-malignant and malignant human bronchial epithelial cells. Active in vivo.
