The wogonin-containing herb Scutellaria baicalensis has successfully been used for curing various diseases in traditional Chinese medicine. Wogonin has been shown to induce apoptosis in different cancer cells and to suppress growth of human cancer xenografts in vivo. However, its direct targets remain unknown. In this study, we demonstrate for the first(More)
Nitric oxide (NO) is a radical molecule produced by iNOS and plays a role in various physiological and pathophysiological conditions including inflammatory diseases and cancer. In the present study, organic extract of Daedalea gibbosa was effective in inhibiting NO and PGE2 production in RAW 264.7 cells. The extract of D. gibbosa was chemically fractionated(More)
Vinblastine and vincristine are dimeric indole alkaloids derived from Catharanthus roseus (formerly: Vinca rosea). Their monomeric precursor molecules are vindoline and catharanthine. While vinblastine and vincristine are well-known mitotic spindle poisons, not much is known about vindoline and catharanthine. Vindoline and catharanthine showed weak(More)
Adverse effects are exhibited by most drugs in current clinical practice, the causes for which are often not known. In this post genomic era, bioinformatics has the potential to address several issues in understanding the mechanism of drug action and in designing improved drugs. This study describes the analysis of the possible pharmacodynamic behaviour of(More)
