Eupatorium aschenbornianum is considered useful in the treatment of gastric ulcer. In the current study the validity of this practice was tested by using the experimental model of an ethanol induced gastric ulcer in rats. The results show that E. aschenbornianum had gastroprotective activity, that the hexane extract had the highest protective activity(More)
Croton reflexifolius H. B. K (Euphorbiaceae) is a very common medicinal plant in the Huastecan region of Mexico that, according to local folk medicine, is considered useful in the treatment of gastritis and gastric ulcer. We have aimed to test the validity of this practice by using the experimental model of an ethanol-induced gastric ulcer in male Wistar(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the behavioral effects of palmitone in the anti-anxiety response in experimental models in mice. In the elevated plus-maze test, palmitone (0.3, 1, 3, 10 and 30 mg/kg, I. P.) lengthened, from 50 % to 199 %, the time spent in the open arm region of the maze at all doses tested, as compared to the vehicle group ( P <(More)
The preparation and further rearrangement of (-)-modhephene (1) to a (-)-triquinane 5 has been assessed through acid catalysis. The rearrangement involved protonation, 1,2 sigma-bond and methyl shifts, and deprotonation. Monitored experiments by 1H NMR spectroscopy suggested the intermediate (-)-isocomene (3), which was further evidenced when a sample of(More)
(‒)-Encecanescin (1) has been isolated from the leaves of Eupatorium aschembornianum. Two conformers are present in the crystal structure as a result of molecular disorder. The structure of 1 was established by 1H- and 13C-NMR spectroscopy in CDCl3 solution using 2D NMR techniques (gHSQC, gHMBC and NOESY). A Monte Carlo random search using molecular(More)
Formation of (-)-[4.3.3]propellane 4 from (-)-14-hydroxymodhephene (2) proceeds through a Wagner-Meerwein rearrangement via C3--C4 bond-shift to give a stable intermediate, dimethylcyclohexadienyl cation A, which undergoes deprotonation. Herein, this mechanism was investigated by using a deuterium labeled substrate at the C-14 methylene group of (-)-2,(More)
The chilli pepper landrace CM334 (Capsicum annuum L.) is resistant to Phytophthora capsici (Pc), but susceptible to Meloidogyne enterolobii (Me) and Nacobbus aberrans (Na). Resistance to Pc is associated with capsidiol (sesquiterpene phytoalexin). To know the transcriptional alterations that Na or Me induce in CM334 plants, the expression levels of some(More)
