Description: Didesmethylrocaglamide is a naturally occurring 1H-cyclopenta[b]benzofuran lignans of the rocaglamide type isolated from three Aglaia species (Aglaia duperreana, A. oligophylla and A. spectabilis). Didesmethylrocaglamide inhibited cell growth in a similar concentration range as the well-known anticancer drug vinblastine sulfate. Didesmethylrocaglamide arrested MPNST cells at G2-M, increased the sub-G1 population, induced cleavage of caspases and PARP, and elevated the levels of the DNA-damage response marker γH2A.X, while decreasing the expression of AKT and ERK1/2, consistent with translation inhibition.
