Evaluation of the antiviral activity of kaempferol and its glycosides against human cytomegalovirus.
Planta Med. 2000 May;66(4):377-9. PMID: 10865462
The antiviral activity of seven flavonoids, belonging to the kaempferol series, was evaluated against human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) by a rapid method of detection of the immediate-early (IE) antigen, induced by the virus in infected cells. Flavonoids bearing acyl substituents were found to be the most active compounds.
