Abstract
To search for possible anti-tumor promoters, ten flavonoid derivatives (1-1 0) synthesized from morin and quercetin were examined for their inhibitory effects on the Epstein-Barr virus early antigen (EBV-EA) activation by a sh ort-term in vitro assay. Of these compounds, pentaallyl ethers (9, 10) show ed significant inhibitory effects on EBV-EA activation induced by the tumor promoter, 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol 13-acetate. Further, quercetin pentaal lyl ether (10) exhibited remarkable inhibitory effects on mouse skin tumor promotion in an in vivo two-stage carcinogenesis test. (C) 2001 Elsevier Sc ience Ireland Ltd.
