|Issue Date:||2003||Journal:||Journal of Natural Products||Abstract:||From the stem bark of Dracaena draco, three new compounds, namely, draconins A-C (1-3), were isolated, along with 17 known compounds. The structures of the new compounds isolated were elucidated on the basis of spectroscopic data interpretation. Several of the isolated compounds showed potent cytotoxic activities measured on the human leukemia cell line HL-60 (IC50's from 2.0 to 9.7 muM at 72 h). The mechanism by which compounds 1 and 2 display their cytostatic properties is through induction of cell death by apoptosis, as evaluated by fluorescence microscopy and DNA fragmentation.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/50578||ISSN:||0163-3864||DOI:||10.1021/np020517j||Source:||Journal of Natural Products[ISSN 0163-3864],v. 66(6), p. 793-798 (Mayo 2023)|
