23-hydroxybetulinic acid is one of the bioactive components responsible for its anticancer activity. In vitro: 23-hydroxybetulinic acid also shows different proliferation inhibitory activity against B16, HeLa, and HUVEC, with the IC50 value of 78.5, 80, and 94.8 uM, respectively. 23-hydroxybetulinic acid can promote cell cycle arrest at S phase and induce apoptosis via intrinsic pathway. 23-hydroxybetulinic acid disrupts mitochondrial membrane potential significantly (p<0.01) and selectively downregulates the levels of Bcl-2, survivin and upregulates Bax, cytochrome C, cleaved caspase-9 23-hydroxybetulinic acid can induce apoptosis in K562 cells. [1] 23-hydroxybetulinic acid enhances sensitivity of doxorubicin (DOX, ADR) on MCF-7/ADR cell lines, indicating its potential to be developed as a novel MDR modulator.[2] 23-HBA significantly improve the sensitivity of the tumor to doxorubicin.
