- n. A compound, C16H12O5, found in the leaves of Robinia Pseudacacia. It is probably the monomethyletherof apigenin (which see).
We received a patent for it acacetin and hope to make it into a drug together with Sinopharm.
They extracted its key ingredient, acacetin, created its synthetic twin and found success in experiments on dogs with atrial fibrillation.
Among the 22 flavone derivatives tested, only wogonin was strongly mutagenic, while five derivatives, apigenin triacetate, acacetin, chrysoeriol, pedalitin, and pedalitin tetraacetate, were only weakly mutagenic.
