Identification of pheophorbide a and its related compounds as possible anti-tumor promoters in the leaves of Neptunia oleracea


, : Identification of pheophorbide a and its related compounds as possible anti-tumor promoters in the leaves of Neptunia oleracea. Bioscience, Biotechnology, and Biochemistry 60(6): 1028-1030

Six chlorophyll-related compounds isolated from leaves of Neptunia oleracea (Leguminosae) inhibited the activation of tumor promoter-induced Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). Photo-irradiation of pheophorbide a, the major active constituent, did not enhance this inhibitory activity, and thus ruled out any photosensitizing effect playing the major role.
