Cat. No. 1125
Chemical Name: 2-(3,4-Dihydroxyphenyl)-3,5,7-trihydroxy-4H-1-benzopyran-4-one
Biological ActivityAntitumor agent; induces apoptosis and inhibits synthesis of heat shock proteins. Inhibits many enzyme systems including tyrosine protein kinase, phospholipase A2, phosphodiesterases, mitochondrial ATPase, PI 3-kinase and protein kinase C. Can also activate Ca2+ and K+ channels and behaves as an agonist at estrogen (GPR30) receptors.
