Amentoflavone is a natural biflavone compound with many biological properties, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidative, and neuroprotective effects. IC50 value: Target: In vitro: In irradiated v79 cells, Pretreatment with amentoflavone 24 hours prior to 8 Gy 60Co γ-ray irradiation significantly inhibited apoptosis, promoted the G2 phase, decreased the concentration of ROS and mitochondrial mass. Amentoflavone dose-dependently inhibited the viability of SW480 cells, and a high concentration of amentoflavone (150 μmol/L) obviously induced apoptosis of the cells. In vivo: In epilepsy models, amentoflavone effectively prevented pilocarpine-induced epilepsy in a mouse kindling model, suppressed nuclear factor-κB activation and expression, inhibited excessive discharge of hippocampal neurons resulting in a reduction in epileptic seizures, shortened attack time, and diminished loss and apoptosis of hippocampal neurons.
