Objective Amentoflavone is the main component of Selaginella tamariscina widely known as an oriental traditional medicinal stuff that has been known to have a variety of medicinal effects such as the induction of apoptosis, anti- metastasis, and anti-inflammation. However, the effect of amentoflavone on autophagy has not been reported until now. The aim of this study was to investigate whether amentoflavone has a positive effect on the induction of autophagy related to cell aging.

Brain inflammation is one of the main causes of epileptogenesis, a chronic process triggered by various insults, including genetic or acquired factors that enhance susceptibility to seizures. Amentoflavone, a naturally occurring biflavonoid compound that has anti-inflammatory effects, exerts neuroprotective effects against nervous system diseases. In the present study, we aimed to investigate the effects of amentoflavone on epilepsy in vivo and in vitro and elucidate the underlying mechanism. Th...

Infection of Herpes simplex virus 1 (HSV-1) induces severe clinical disorders, such as herpes simplex encephalitis and keratitis. Acyclovir (ACV) is the current therapeutic drug against viral infection and ACV-resistant strains have gradually emerged, leading to the requirement for novel antiviral agents. In this study, we exhibited the antiviral activity of amentoflavone, a naturally occurring biflavonoid, toward HSV-1 and ACV-resistant strains. Amentoflavone significantly inhibited infection o...
