Emodin (1,3,8-trihydroxy-6-methylanthraquinone) is a biologically active anthraquinone identified in the roots and bark of a number of plants. Emodin is also observed naturally in a number of widely used Chinese medicinal herbs, including Rheum officinale and Polygonam cuspidatummedicine. It has been widely studied for its antibacterial, diuretic, immunosuppressive, anti-inflammatory and vasorelaxant effects. It has been reported that emodin induces apoptosis of several types of human cancer cells by modulating various signaling pathways. However, the biological mechanisms by which emodin induces cytotoxicity remain largely unknown. 

Some studies have demonstrated that emodin significantly inhibited the growth and invasiveness, and induced the apoptosis of human breast cancer cells in a dose- and time-dependent manner. These processes were also associated with caspase and PARP activation, increased levels of p53 and Bax, and decreased levels of Bcl-2. Further studies are needed in the future in order to elucidate the biological and molecular mechanisms of emodin for the treatment of breast cancer.

So some studies suggest that emodin is a potential therapeutic agent for the treatment of breast cancer.
