Natural products in crop protection.
TLDR
The historical use of natural products in agricultural practices, the impact ofnatural products on the development of new pesticides, and the future prospects for natural products-based pest management are reviewed. Expand
Antimycobacterial plant terpenoids.
TLDR
This review covers recent reports on plant-derived terpenoids that have demonstrated moderate to high activity in in vitro bioassays against M. tuberculosis and focuses on the structural features essential for antimycobacterial activity. Expand
Quantification of saffron (Crocus sativus L.) metabolites crocins, picrocrocin and safranal for quality determination of the spice grown under different environmental Moroccan conditions
TLDR
High-performance liquid chromatography was used to quantify the most important saffron components crocins, picrocrocin, and safranal which are respectively responsible for its colour, taste and odour and suggests that post-harvest processing of saffrons produced under different environments may need to be improved. Expand
Natural products as sources for new pesticides.
TLDR
Despite the common perception that natural products may not be the best sources for NAI as pesticides, when both conventional and biopesticides are examined collectively, it can be argued that their combined impact with the EPA from 1997 to 2010 accounted for 69.3% of all NAI registrations. Expand
Diversity and bioprospecting of fungal communities associated with endemic and cold-adapted macroalgae in Antarctica
TLDR
The results suggest that the endemic and cold- Adapted macroalgae of Antarctica shelter a rich, diversity and complex fungal communities consisting of a few dominant indigenous or mesophilic cold-adapted species, and a large number of rare and/or endemic taxa, which may provide an interesting model of algal–fungal interactions under extreme conditions as well as a potential source of bioactive compounds. Expand
Yield and oil composition of 38 basil (Ocimum basilicum L.) accessions grown in Mississippi.
TLDR
The results demonstrated that basil could be a viable essential oil crop in Mississippi and the availability of various chemotypes offers the opportunity for production of basil to meet the market requirements of specific basil oils or individual compounds such as (-)-linalool, eugenol, methyl chavicol, methyl cinnamate, or methyl Eugenol. Expand
Content, composition, and bioactivity of the essential oils of three basil genotypes as a function of harvesting.
TLDR
Essential oils from both species grown in Mississippi showed in vitro activity against Leishmania donovani, which was comparable to the activity of commercial oil (IC50 = 40-50 microg/mL). Expand
Bioactivity-guided fractionation and GC/MS fingerprinting of Angelica sinensis and Angelica archangelica root components for antifungal and mosquito deterrent activity.
TLDR
Phthalides and monoterpene hydrocarbons were determined to be good systematic markers or chemical fingerprints for A. sinensis and A. archangelica root oils and deterred the biting of two mosquito species more effectively than DEET. Expand
Effect of harvest timing on leaf production and yield of diterpene glycosides in Stevia rebaudiana Bert: A specialty perennial crop for Mississippi
TLDR
Stevia rebaudiana (Bertoni), a perennial herb of the Asteraceae, is one of the most important sources of non-caloric natural sweeteners and its glycosides exert beneficial effects on human health, including anti-hyperglycemic and antihypertensive properties. Expand
Distillation time effect on lavender essential oil yield and composition.
TLDR
Results suggest that lavender essential oil yield may not increase after 60 min DT, and the change in essentialOil yield, andThe concentrations of cineole, fenchol and linalool acetate as DT changes were modeled very well by the asymptotic nonlinear regression model. Expand
