  • Potent inhibitor of human 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO). This enzyme catalyzes two initial steps in the conversion of arachidonic acid into leukotrienes, well known mediators of inflammatory and allergic reactions.
  • Iron-chelating compound.
  • Anticancer antibiotic. Shown to inhibit tumor cell invasion in vitro.
  • Antibacterial compound.
  • Antioxidant with free radical scavenging activities.
