Antimicrobial Activity of Essential Oils against Streptococcus mutans and their Antiproliferative Effects
EO showed activity at low concentrations, and their selected active fractions were also effective against biofilm formed by S. mutans and human tumor cell lines.
Phenolic compounds and anticancer activity of commercial sugarcane cultivated in Brazil.
The evaluation of the cytotoxic activity of mid-polarity sugarcane extracts against human cancer cell lines, as well as the isolation of steroids sitosterol, stigmasterol and campesterol, may explain the cytostatic activity observed for the mid-Polarity crude extract and filtrates.
Antiproliferative Activity and Induction of Apoptosis in PC-3 Cells by the Chalcone Cardamonin from Campomanesia adamantium (Myrtaceae) in a Bioactivity-Guided Study
In vitro studies showed that the isolated chalcone cardamonin inhibited prostate cancer cell proliferation and decreased the expression of NFkB1, suggesting an effect on apoptosis induction in the PC-3 cell line.
Antiproliferative properties of polyketides isolated from Virola sebifera leaves
An activity‐guided fractionation of Virola sebifera Aubl provided novel methylene chloride‐soluble fraction that showed selectivity against human OVCAR03 and NCI‐ADR cell lines, ranging from 2 to 4 µg/mL.
Coronarin D Induces Apoptotic Cell Death and Cell Cycle Arrest in Human Glioblastoma Cell Line.
Findings highlight the antiproliferative activity of Coronarin D against glioblastoma cell line U–251 and provide a basis for further investigation on its antineoplastic activity on brain cancer.
Antimicrobial and antiproliferative activities of geopropolis from stingless bee Melipona scutellaris
Geopropolis from Melipona scutellaris presents interesting antimicrobial, anti-biofilm and antiproliferative activities, which suggest absence of flavonoids and presence of benzophenones as major compounds.
