Beta-solamarine: tumor inhibitor isolated from Solanum dulcamara.
Kupchan SM, Barboutis SJ, Knox JR, Cam CA.
An
alcoholic extract of Solanum dulcamara L., a plant widely used in folk
medicine for treating cancers and warts, shows tumor-inhibitory
activity against Sarcoma 180 in mice. Systematic fractionation of the
extract has led to isolation and characterization of beta-solamarine as
an active principle.
