How to use

In Vitro:

It is showed that tanshinones significantly inhibited A549 proliferation and Isocryptotanshinone (ICTS) exhibits the strongest activity. Isocryptotanshinone inhibits the constitutive STAT3 and p-STAT3 (Y705) expression in concentration and time-dependent manners. Isocryptotanshinone dramatically inhibits the IL-6-stimulated expression of p-STAT3 (Y705) in a time-dependent manner.
