Aspergillus niger ATCC 11394 was used to catalyze the biotransformation of dihydrocoumarin using two experimental conditions: growing and resting cells. Six biotransformation products (27) were purified from the bio-reaction media and their structures elucidated by spectroscopic methods and mass spectrometry. The latter technique coupled to gas(More)
Quercetin (QT) could be considered as a potential therapeutic agent for different diseases due to its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antiviral and anticancer properties. This study was designed to investigate the ability of QT to protect the chick intestine against menadione (MEN) induced injury in vivo and in vitro. Four-week old chicks (Gallus gallus)(More)
The chemical study of Heterothalamus alienus gave rutin, spathulenol (1), (1R,7S)-germacra-4(15),5,10(14)-trien-1beta-ol (2), sakuranetin (3), padmatin 3-acetate (4), (2R,3R)-dihydroquercetin-7,3',4'-trimethyl ether (5), (2R,3R)-dihydroquercetin-7,4'-dimethyl ether (6), (2R,3R)-3-acetoxy-5,7,4'-trihydroxyflavanone (7), as the main components of an(More)
The bioactivity-guided fractionation of an active chloroform extract of Conyza albida led to the isolation of three alkenynes, deca-4,6-diyn-2-(Z)-enoic methyl ester (1), deca-4,6-diyn-2-(Z)-enoic ethyl ester (2) and deca-2,4-diene-4-hydroxy-6-yn-1,4-olide (3), and the terpenoid spathulenol (4), as the active toxic metabolites in the Artemia sp. lethality(More)
The flower heads of Microliabum polymnioides afforded scopoletin, 5,4'-dihydroxy-3,6,7-trimethoxyflavone, 3,5,4'-trihydroxy-6,7-dimethoxyflavone and 3,5,7,4'-tetrahydroxy-6-methoxyflavone. The leaves contained hexadecanoic acid, phytol and docosane. This is the first report on the presence of 6-methoxyflavonoids in Microliabum genus.
Analysis of the hydrodistilled essential oil of the aerial parts of Chersodoma argentina Cabrera by GC-MS and NMR spectroscopy revealed that over 80% consisted of monoterpene hydrocarbons such as alpha-thujene, alpha-pinene and beta-pinene. Contact and headspace volatile exposure assays of the essential oil demonstrated antifungal activity against(More)
