Acetylcholinesterase and butyrylcholinesterase inhibitory activity of some Turkish medicinal plants.
The chloroform:medianol (1:1) extracts of a number of the plant species belonging to eight families, namely Corydalis solida (L.) Swartz subsp. solida and Glaucium corniculatum (L.) J. H. RudolphExpand
Antioxidant and anticholinesterase evaluation of selected Turkish Salvia species
Since Salvia species (Lamiaceae) have been recorded to be used against memory loss in European folk medicine, we herein examined in vitro anticholinesterase and antioxidant activities of 56 extractsExpand
Cholinesterase inhibitory activities of some flavonoid derivatives and chosen xanthone and their molecular docking studies.
In vitro inhibitory activities of four flavonoid derivatives of quercetin, rutin, kaempferol 3-O-beta-D-galactoside and macluraxanthone are examined to show a concentration-dependant inhibition of acetylcholinesterase and BChE and several strong hydrogen bonds to several important amino acid residues of both the enzymes were showed.

Screening of Various Phenolic Acids and Flavonoid Derivatives for their Anticholinesterase Potential
In this study, in vitro inhibitory activities of a number of phenolic acids as well as of various flavonoid derivatives against AChE and BChE at 1 mg/ml concentration are screened using a microplate-reader assay based on the Ellman method. Expand
Assessment of anticholinesterase and antioxidant properties of selected sage (Salvia) species with their total phenol and flavonoid contents
Abstract In this study, cholinesterase inhibitory potential relevant to Alzheimer's disease and antioxidant activities of the dichloromethane, ethyl acetate, and ethanol extracts from the aerialExpand
Resveratrol: A Double-Edged Sword in Health Benefits
This review summarized current data on resveratrol pharmacological effects and confirmed its anticancer properties, as well as other bioactive effects, namely as anti-inflammatory, anticarcinogenic, cardioprotective, vasorelaxant, phytoestrogenic and neuroprotective. Expand
Survey of 55 Turkish Salvia taxa for their acetylcholinesterase inhibitory and antioxidant activities
Abstract In the current work, our target was to screen inhibitory potentials of 55 Turkish Salvia taxa, 28 of which are endemic, against acetylcholinesterase (AChE), which is a chief enzyme inExpand
Activity of Essential Oils and Individual Components against Acetyland Butyrylcholinesterase
Almost all of the essential oils showed a very high inhibitory activity (over 80%) against both enzymes, whereas the single components were not as active as the essential oil. Expand
Profiling of in vitro neurobiological effects and phenolic acids of selected endemic Salvia species.
The ethyl acetate and methanol extracts from 16 Salvia L. species were screened for their inhibitory activity against acetylcholinesterase, butyrylcholinesterase, lipoxygenase, and tyrosinase; theExpand
Inhibitory effect of Turkish Rosmarinus officinalis L. on acetylcholinesterase and butyrylcholinesterase enzymes.
In the current study, acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and BChE inhibitory activity of the petroleum ether, ethyl acetate, chloroform, and methanol extracts, rosmarinic acid as well as the essential oil obtained from Rosmarinus officinalis L. Expand
