Chelerythrine is a benzophenanthridine alkaloid extracted from the plant Greater celandine (Chelidonium majus). It is a potent, selective, and cell-permeable protein kinase C inhibitor.[1] It is also the major active natural product found in the plant Zanthoxylum clava-herculis, exhibiting anti-bacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus.[2]
