Norwogonin (CAS: 4443-09-8) Description

Norwogonin (CAS: 4443-09-8), also known as 5,7,8-trihydroxyflavone (5,7,8-THF), is a flavone, a naturally occurring flavonoid-like chemical compound which is found in Scutellaria baicalensis (Baikal skullcap). It has been found to act as an agonist of the TrkB, the main signaling receptor of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), and appears to possess roughly the same activity in this regard to that of the closely related but more well-known 7,8-dihydroxyflavone (7,8-DHF).

Norwogonin (CAS: 4443-09-8) Applications:

Norwogonin (CAS: 4443-09-8) had excellent antioxidant activity, suggesting that C8-OH was the prominent antioxidant active groups for them. More importantly, the findings indicated that norwogonin and isowogonin afforded outstanding antioxidant capacity and might be promising candidates as dietary natural products in the treatment of oxidative related diseases.[1]

 

It has been shown that norwogonin causes substantial reduction in the viability of the human colorectal carcinoma cells in a dose-dependent manner, exhibiting an IC50 of 15.5 µM in cancer cells and IC50 of 90 µM in normal cell lines. The AO/EB staining assay showed that norwogonin suppresses the viability of cancer cells via induction of apoptotic cell death which was associated with increase in Bax and decrease in Bcl-2 levels. Comet assay results also confirmed that norwogonin induces apoptosis. Norwogonin also led to induction of autophagy along with triggering G2/M phase cell cycle arrest. In conclusion, the current study shows that norwogonin has a potential to inhibit in vitro colorectal cancer cells growth by triggering apoptosis, autophagy, and cell cycle arrest and as such could be developed as a possible anticancer agent.[2]
