Flavonoids from Marchantia convoluta (MCF) were studied for their ability to inhibit the proliferation of 2.2.15 cells. All concentration of MCF inhibited the secretion of HBsAg and HBeAg in the cultured medium by 2.2.15 cells. Analysis of morphological changes of MCF-treated cells by phase-contrast microscopy revealed a possible mode of action for MCF: inhibition of proliferation of 2.2.15 cells by inducing apoptosis.
