Collinin is a terpenylated coumarin isolated from Flindersia maculosa and other species by Ritchie and colleagues at Sydney University, Australia in 1954. Collinin possesses broad spectrum activity as an inhibitor of inflammation, collagenase and the differentiation of human preosteoclastic cells. Collinin induces apoptosis in human Jurkat T cells and is active against resistant strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
