Kinetin riboside is an anti-proliferative agent which induces apoptosis in certain cell lines. Mechanistic studies show that Kinetin riboside upregulates CDKN1A, causes depletion of ATP, and causes a cell cycle arrest at the G2/M phase. Further studies suggest that Kinetin riboside also disrupts the mitochondrial membrane potential, induces the release of cytochrome c, activates caspase-3, upregulates Bad and down-regulates Bcl-2.
