Phloretin is not Naringenin chalcone[edit]

Phloretin and Naringenin chalcone are two different chemicals.

Naringenin chalcone: http://www.agrool.gr/files/naringenin%20chalcone.jpg

Naringenin chalcone has a doublebond.

Sorry for my bad english.

Kind regards, Threonin. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Threonin (talkcontribs) 11:00, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

Phloretin is a reversible inhibitor. Phloretin inhibits urea transport in toads, with increased Phloretin concentration urea transport is inhibited, however once Phloretin is removed the urea is able to move. [1]

Phloretin also inhibits glucose transport and Protein Kinase C, which induces apoptosis (cell death). [2]

Phloretin induces cell cycle arrest and inhibits cell proliferation. Phloretin can be used as a therapeutic effect for tumours as seen in Glioblastoma. [3]
