Wallflowers Could Lead to New Drugs
Boyce Thompson Institute

Plant-derived chemicals called cardenolides – like digitoxin – have long been used to treat heart disease, and have shown potential as cancer therapies. But the compounds are very toxic, making it difficult for doctors to prescribe a dose that works without harming the patient. Researchers now show that the wormseed wallflower could be used as a model species to elucidate how plants biosynthesize cardenolides, knowledge that could aid the discovery and development of safer drugs.
