Indicine-N-oxide: the antitumor principle of Heliotropium indicum.Lloydia. 1976 Mar-Jun; 39(2-3):125-8.L
Extracts of Heliotropium indicum Linn. (Boraginaceae) showed significant activity in several experimental tumor systems. The active principle is isolated and shown to be the N-oxide of the alkaloid, indicine, previously isolated from this plant. Supporting structural data and anti-tumor data are provided.
