Pythagoras, the traditional Greek mathematician, didn't himself consume fava beans in any shape; in truth, he banned his fans from consuming them. Cultural geographer Frederick Simoons disputes the competition that Pythagoras demonstrated that ban simply because he famous the chance of favism, a disorder that afflicts genetically-predisposed people who eat fava beans.

It has also been found that f3-carboline and canthin-6-one alkaloids possess strong inhibitory effects on cyclic adenosine monophosphate phosphodiesterase (Sung 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 12 Assay utilizes KB cells from human carcinoma of the nasopharynx For significant activity ED50 ,;;; 4 jlg/ml Fig. 2.

In particular, p-carboline-1-carboxymethylester, 4-methoxy-5hydroxycanthin-6-one, and 5-methoxycanthin-6-one were particularly potent.

Canthin-6-one, I-methoxycanthin-6one, 5-methoxycanthin-6-one, and canthin-6-one-3-N-oxide have been shown to be cytotoxic to guinea pig ear keratinocytes (Anderson et al. 1983). It has also been found that f3-carboline and canthin-6-one alkaloids possess strong inhibitory effects on cyclic adenosine monophosphate phosphodiesterase (Sung 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 12 Assay utilizes KB cells from human carcinoma of the nasopharynx For significant activity ED50 ,;;; 4 jlg/ml Fig. 2.
