Bioactive Molecule Icariin Inhibited Proliferation While Enhanced Apoptosis and Autophagy of Rat Airway Smooth Muscle Cells In Vitro

Icariin is the main active compound extracted from epimedium Flavonoids (EFs) and involved in regulation of cell behaviors (proliferation, apoptosis, and autophagy etc.) for many cell types, but the effect of Icariin on airway smooth muscle cells (ASMCs) is still unknown. The aim of the present study is to examine the role of Icariin on rat ASMCs proliferation, apoptosis and autophagy. Read more here.
