CAS#: 22395-22-8

Description: 7-Methoxyflavone is a flavone that has been found in Z. brasiliensis and has diverse biological activities. It inhibits aromatase (IC50 = 1.9 µM in a cell-free assay) and LPS-induced nitric oxide (NO) production by 17.74% in RAW 264.7 macrophages when used at a concentration of 20 µM.1,2 7-Methoxyflavone activates androgen and/or glucocorticoid receptor transcriptional activity in a reporter assay and has antinociceptive effects in the acetic acid-induced writhing test in mice (ED50 = 82.5 µmol/kg).
