From: Baicalein, an active component of Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi, prevents lysophosphatidylcholine-induced cardiac injury by reducing reactive oxygen species production, calcium overload and apoptosis via MAPK pathways

Proposed mechanisms of the cardioprotective effects of baicalein on lysoPC-induced myocardial apoptosis according to results in the present study. Baicalein can significantly inhibit myocardial apoptosis induced by lysoPC, at least in part, by reducing ROS production and calcium overload and blunting MAPK-mediated cascades.
