Pedalitin isolated from the aerial part of Rabdosia japonica (Labiatae), exhibited cytotoxicity against the murine B16-F10 melanoma cell line with an IC50 of 30 μm (9.5 μg/mL). As the cells were cultured with this flavone, melanin production was not suppressed, but rather enhanced. Quercetin isolated from the same source exhibited similar activities, but rutin showed neither activity.
