Bioassay-guided fractionation of the methanolic extracts of Vismia baccifera, V. jefensis, and V. macrophylla against human breast, CNS, and lung cancer cell lines resulted in the isolation of a new compound, ferruginin C (1), and seven known compounds, ferruginins A (2) and B (3), vismin (4), harunganin (5), vismione B (6), deacetylvismione H (7), and(More)
Bioassay-guided fractionation of an EtOAc/MeOH extract of Adenaria floribunda young leaves using MCF-7, H-460, and SF-268 cancer cell lines yielded four new active compounds named adenaflorins A-D (1-4). Their chemical structures were determined by spectroscopic means. Adenaflorin A (1) was the most cytotoxic.
Three new compounds, 2-(3,4-dihydroxyphenyl)-5,7-dihydroxy-4-oxo-4H-chromen-3-yl-4,6-bis-O-beta-D-(3,4,5-trihydroxybenzoyl)glucopyranoside (1), 5,7-dihydroxy-2-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-4-oxo-4H-chromen-3-yl-5-O-alpha-L-(3,4,5-trihydroxybenzoyl)arabinofuranoside (2), and 2-hydroxy-4-O-alpha-L-(3,5,7-trihydroxy-4-oxo-4H-chromen-2-yl)phenylarabinofuranoside (3), were(More)
Wireless sensor network localization is an important area that attracted significant research interest. This interest is expected to grow further with the proliferation of wireless sensor network applications. As localization is becoming popular, many attacks on the localization process are also on a rise. These attacks confuse the localization process and(More)
A new cucurbitacin D analogue, 2-deoxycucurbitacin D (1), as well as cucurbitacin D (2) and 25-acetylcucurbitacin F (3) were isolated from Sloanea zuliaensis. Compound 1 was found only in the young leaves of the plant and not in the mature leaves, and its structure was established using spectroscopic means. Compounds 1-3 demonstrated potent cytotoxic(More)
Localization is an apparent aspect of a wireless sensor network, which is the focus of much interesting research. One of the severe conditions that needs to be taken into consideration is localizing a mobile target through a dispersed sensor network in the presence of physical barrier attacks. These attacks confuse the localization process and cause(More)
Treatment of scutebaicalin (1) with K-t-BuO yielded both the (13S)- and (13R)-8beta,13-epoxyclerodanes 2 and 3, respectively, by a Michael-type heterocyclization reaction. Identical treatment of scutalpin B (4) gave the corresponding (11E)-11-deacetoxy-12-dehydro derivative 5 by an elimination reaction. Side chains at C-9, such as those of compounds 1-5,(More)
We sought to compare the abilities of the specialist Lepidoptera Pyrrhopyge thericles (Hesperiidae) and the generalist Periphoba arcaei (Saturniidae) to assimilate three highly cytotoxic compounds from their larval host plant, Vismia baccifera (Clusiaceae) and to determine whether either insect discriminated in its assimilation of the compounds that are(More)
Localization of the wireless sensor network is a vital area acquiring an impressive research concern and called upon to expand more with the rising of its applications. As localization is gaining prominence in wireless sensor network, it is vulnerable to jamming attacks. Jamming attacks disrupt communication opportunity among the sender and receiver and(More)
