Tanghinigenin, a cardiac glycoside, is isolated from the seeds of Cerbera manghas L. In this study, we demonstrated that tanghinigenin reduced the viability of human promyelocytic leukemia HL-60 cells in a time- and dose-dependent manner, and efficiently induced apoptosis in HL-60 cells as evidenced by the Annexin V/PI binding assay, DNA fragmentation and AO/EB staining studies. In addition, stimulation of HL-60 cells with tanghinigenin induced a series of intracellular events including the activation of caspase-3, -8, and -9, as well as up-regulation of Fas and FasL protein level. Taken together, caspase activation and Fas/FasL interaction was found to be involved in tanghinigenin-induced HL-60 cell apoptosis.
