The researchers show that hemanthamine (HAE) inhibits protein production by acting on these ribosomes. The extract seems to block the production of ribosomes in the so-called nucleolus.

Also, the authors conclude that they provide a rationale for designing molecules with enhanced potencies and reduced toxicities.
