Flavokawain A, a proming anticarcinogenic agent, is a chalcone from kava extract with anti-tumor activity. Flavokawain A induces cell apoptosis by involvement of Bax protein-dependent and mitochondria-dependent apoptotic pathway. Flavokawain A has the potential for the study of bladder cancer.

How to use
Curzerene (0-100 µM; 24-72 hours) indicates that cell inhibition increases in a dose- and time-dependent manner, IC50 to SPC A1 cells at 24, 48, and 72 h was 403.8 μM, 154.8 µM, and 47.01 µM, respectively. Curzerene (0-100 µM; 48 hours) exhibits a higher percentage of apoptotic and necrotic cells than that of the control group in SPC-A1cells. Curzerene(0-100 µM; 48 hours) indicates that the percentage of cells arrested in the G2/M phase increased from 9.26% in the control group cells to 17.57% in the cells treated with the highest dose. Curzerene (6.25-100 µM; 48 hours) decreases the mRNA expression of GSTA1 in SPC A1 cells. Curzerene (6.25-100 µM; 48 hours) decreases the protein expression of GSTA1 in SPC A1 cells.
