CitationBoominathan, L., Natural product-based therapy for Alzheimer’s disease: Cirsilol (3′,4′,5-trihydroxy-6,7-dimethoxyflavone), a flavone isolated from Achillea fragrantissima, decreases Tau expression via up regulation of its target gene, 15/October/2014, 7.19 am, Genome-2-Bio-Medicine Discovery center (GBMD), http://genomediscovery.org

Significance:  It has been shown that decreasing the expression of Tau protein alleviates the pathogenic symptoms-associated with Alzheimer’s disease. This study suggests, for the first time, that Cirsilol can be used to decrease the expression of Tau protein. Thus, pharmacological formulations encompassing “Cirsilol or its analogues” can be used to treat patients suffering with Alzheimer’s disease and tauopathies.
