Cephalomannine is an alkaloid compound derived from the plant Cephalotaxus manii and is a precursor of paclitaxel. It is used for its antineoplastic capabilities, which allow it to stabilize and halt microtubule formation during mitosis. Stalling microtubule formation increases Raf-1 expression stimulating downstream apoptotic pathways.
