Chemically it is a flavone derivative. Apigenin is the aglucone of apiin. Apigenin acts experimentally cytostatic or antiproliferative (detectable in melanoma cell cultures), antiviral (Hakobyan et al. 2016). A UV-protective effect could be demonstrated in keratinocyte cultures. Furthermore, it is an inhibitor of human oestrogen synthetase. Apiin is the flavone glycoside of apigenin.
