All the compounds isolated either from the fruits or other parts were found to exhibit strong molluscicidal properties against the schistosomiasis-transmitting snails Biomphalaria glabrata. Expand
Antimicrobial and antioxidant activities of some Nigerian medicinal plants.
Ten Nigerian plants suggested from their ethnomedical uses to possess antimicrobial and antioxidant activities were studied and Trichilia heudelotti leaf extract showed both antibacterial and antifungal activities and was the most active against all the strains of bacteria tested. Expand
Ethno-veterinary medicine: screening of Nigerian medicinal plants for trypanocidal properties.
There are bright prospects for the development of some of the active plant extracts as potential trypanocidal agents on the calf aorta endothelial cells while the calculated selective indices ranged between 0.71 and 246.8 indicating bright prospects. Expand
A biflavonoid from Dysoxylum lenticellare gillespie
Abstract A novel biflavonoid, robustaflavone 4′,7″-dimethyl ether, has been isolated from the leaves of Dysoxylum lenticellare , in addition to two known compounds, isoginkgetin and bilobetin. TheirExpand
Evaluation of Ethnomedical Claim III: Anti‐hyperglycemic activities of Gongronema latifolium root and stem (民族药物需求评估III:Gongronema latifolium根与茎的降糖活性)
The insulinotropic activity of the combined root and stem of Gongronema latifolium (Asclepiadaceae) was evaluated to justify its African ethnomedicinal use in the management of diabetes.
Lenticellarine, a molluscicidal alkaloid from Dysoxylum lenticellare
Abstract A new, homoerythrina-derived alkaloid with molluscicidal activity, lenticellarine, was isolated from the leaves of Dysoxylum lenticellare and its structure was determined by spectroscopicExpand
Phytochemical and pharmacological investigation of the cardioactive constituents of the leaf of Dysoxylum lenticellare.
Although the precise mechanism of action of the extract or pure isolates on the atrial myocardium has not been fully determined, available experimental data suggest that the extract and pure isolate act directly on the cardiac muscle. Expand
