General description

A cell-permeable caspase activator and an apoptosis inducer that was originally isolated from gamboge resin for its antimicrobial properties. Shown to inhibit the growth of HeLa and HEL cells minimal inhibitory concentrations (MIC = 12.5 µg/ml).
A cell-permeable, anti-microbial xanthone orignally isolated from the gamboge resin of Garcinia hanburyi. Acts as a caspase activator and apoptosis inducer. Shown to inhibit the growth of HeLa and HEL cells (MIC = 12.5 µg/ml). Reported to block telomerase activity in SMMC-7721 cells. Shown to induce tyrosine kinase phosphatase SHP-1 and suppress Stat3 activation.
