(Guttiferae), by examining their possible inhibitory effects on Epstein-Barr virus early antigen (EBV-EA) activation induced by 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate in Raji cells. All of the compounds tested in this study showed inhibitory activity against EBV, without showing any cytotoxicity. Calocoumarin-A (5) showed more potent activity than any of the other compounds tested. Furthermore, calocoumarin-A (5) exhibited a marked inhibitory effect on mouse skin tumor promotion in an in vivo two-stage carcinogenesis test. The results of the present investigation indicate that some of these 4-phenylcoumarins might be valuable as potential cancer chemopreventive agents (anti-tumor-promoters). © 2001 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd.||Source Title:||Cancer Letters||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/100211||ISSN:||03043835||DOI:||10.1016/S0304-3835(01)00521-3|
