Naturally occurring flavonoid found in Gingko biloba and red wines that activates the mitochondrial Ca2+ uniporter (EC50 = 7 μM). Induces caspase-9-mediated apoptosis in a variety of cancer cell lines via downregulation of polo-like kinase 1 (PLK1) expression. Exhibits antioxidant activity and attenuates osteoclastic bone reabsorption in vitro. Also blocks EGF-induced histone H3Ser10 phosphorylation in mouse epidermal JB6 C141 cells.

Programmed Cell Death Poster
There are two currently recognized forms of programmed cell death: apoptosis and necroptosis. This poster summarizes the signaling pathways involved in apoptosis, necroptosis and cell survival following death receptor activation, and highlights the influence of the molecular switch, cFLIP, on cell fate.
