Acacetin is a Flavonoid with anti-peroxidative and anti-inflammatory properties. Acacetin is used in traditional Chinese medicine. It has been recognized as an antiproliferative agent on cancer cell lines by inducing apoptosis and blocking cell cycle progression in the G1 phase. Acacetin inhibits expression of matrix metalloproteinases via a MAPK-dependent mechanism in fibroblast-like synoviocytes.
