Daffodils May Help Fight Cancer, a New Study Says
A new study, conducted by the RNA Molecular Biology Laboratory at the Faculty of Sciences and ULB-Cancer Research Center, suggests that a natural extract from daffodils may have cancer-killing properties. The results of the study show the mechanism by which the plants of the family Amaryllidaceae alkaloids can fight cancer.
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.
The authors of the study explain in their paper: “Their biological activities are not restricted to anticancer effects but include potential anticholinesterase, antimalarial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory effects. Also, the authors conclude that they provide a rationale for designing molecules with enhanced potencies and reduced toxicities.
