Screening of chemical composition, antimicrobial and antioxidant activities of Artemisia essential oils.
TLDR
The chemical composition of essential oils isolated from aerial parts of seven wild sages from Western Canada, with A. absinthium oil the most active against Staphylococcus strains, and A. biennis oil was the mostactive against dermatophytes, Cryptococcus neoformans, Fonsecaea pedrosoi and Aspergillus niger are investigated. Expand
Ethnopharmacological study of two Lippia species from Oriximiná, Brazil.
TLDR
The chemical and pharmacological data of Lippia alba are in agreement with the ethnobotanical survey, and the chemical composition and antimicrobial activity of their essential oils was investigated. Expand
Characterization of Gordonia sp. strain F.5.25.8 capable of dibenzothiophene desulfurization and carbazole utilization
TLDR
A dibenzothiophene (DBT)-degrading bacterial strain able to utilize carbazole as the only source of nitrogen was identified as Gordonia sp.5.25.8 due to its 16S rRNA gene sequence and phenotypic characteristics and revealed that this strain is highly tolerant to DNA damage and also refractory to induced mutagenesis. Expand
In vitro antioxidant potential of medicinal plant extracts and their activities against oral bacteria based on Brazilian folk medicine.
TLDR
All oral bacteria tested (planktonic or in artificial biofilms) were more susceptible to, and rapidly killed in presence of A. cymbifera, C. nucifera and C. pyramidalis aqueous extracts the most active ones, and all extracts showed good antioxidant potential. Expand
Antileishmanial activity of Eugenol-rich essential oil from Ocimum gratissimum.
TLDR
The essential oil showed no cytototoxic effects against mammalian cells, suggesting that O. gratissimum essential oil and its compounds could be used as sources for new antileishmanial drugs. Expand
Antimicrobial activity of Croton cajucara Benth linalool-rich essential oil on artificial biofilms and planktonic microorganisms.
TLDR
Neither the crude essential oil nor the purified linalool fraction is toxic to mammalian cells, which suggests that the essential oil or its purified components may be useful to control the microbial population in patients with fixed orthodontic appliances. Expand
Melanin from Fonsecaea pedrosoi Induces Production of Human Antifungal Antibodies and Enhances the Antimicrobial Efficacy of Phagocytes
TLDR
Results indicate that melanin from F. pedrosoi is an immunologically active fungal structure that activates humoral and cellular responses that could help the control of chromoblastomycosis by host defenses. Expand
Biology and pathogenesis of Fonsecaea pedrosoi, the major etiologic agent of chromoblastomycosis.
TLDR
Current knowledge on the biological aspects of F. pedrosoi is summarized, including cell differentiation and pathogenic mechanisms during the interaction of fungi with different hosts' elements. Expand
Biological activities of α-pinene and β-pinene enantiomers.
TLDR
In combination with commercial antimicrobials, ciprofloxacin plus (+)-a-pinene or (+)-β- pinene presented synergistic activity against MRSA whereas an indifferent effect against all fungi was detected when amphotericin B was combined with the positive enantiomers of pinene. Expand
Melissa officinalis L. essential oil: antitumoral and antioxidant activities
TLDR
An in‐vitro cytotoxicity assay using MTT indicated that this oil was very effective against a series of human cancer cell lines, and results pointed to the potential use of M. officinalis essential oil as an antitumoral agent. Expand
