Synthetic lethality of flavonoids towards homologous recombination deficient cells through PARP inhibition
Flavonoids can be isolated from many different sources such as plants, fruits, and beverages and they have long been associated with various health benefits. Both in vitro and in vivo studies have shown potential anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, anti-viral, and antioxidant activities associated with these compounds. Previously published research has shown that the anti-cancer effects of flavonoids on BRCA2 deficient cells can be attributed to a PARP inhibitory mechanism. Therefore, thirteen structurally similar flavonoids were screened and identified as PARP inhibitory flavonoids. Seven different ...
