Myricetin (3, 5, 7, 3', 4', 5'-hexahydroxyflavone) is a natural flavonol compound found in a large variety of plants, including berries, oranges, grapes, herbs, teas, and wine. In the last decade, a convergence of evidence has demonstrated that myricetin has good biological activity as an anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory, and anti-oxidation agent. In studies involving various types of cancer cells, myricetin has been shown to suppress cancer cell invasion and metastasis, to induce cell cycle arrest and apoptosis of cancer cells, and to inhibit their proliferation. These findings have raised interest in myricetin as a potential tumor inhibitor in human patients. In this review, evidence of myricetin's anti-tumor activity and its underlying molecular mechanisms published in the last decade are summarized.
