Biological activity of the aqueous extract of Lychnophora pinaster Mart.
Lyophilized aqueous extract (LAE) from Lychnophora pinaster Mart (Asteraceae) aerial parts was evaluated in the search of possible biological activities. LAE exhibited trypanocidal activity (113.62
Analysis of triacylglycerol isomers in Malaysian cocoa butter using HPLC-mass spectrometry
Chocolate is acclaimed for its unique and highly desirable flavor and its unusual melting characteristics (a narrow melting point range centered a few degrees below body temperature ∼32 to ∼35 °C).
Chemical Characterization and Biological Activity of Macfadyena unguis‐cati (Bignoniaceae)
The purpose of this study was to chemically characterize the main plant components, and to evaluate the biological properties of some of the fractions derived from leaves and liana of this plant.
Antimicrobial and cytotoxic activities screening of some Brazilian medicinal plants used in Governador Valadares district
Os extratos etanolicos de plantas medicinais utilizadas por moradores da cidade de Governador Valadares foram avaliados quanto as atividades antimicrobiana e citotoxica. A pesquisa de campo foi
New sources and antifungal activity of sesquiterpene lactones.
Results suggest that a relatively low polarity is one of the molecular requirements for the antifungal activity of sesquiterpene lactones.
Antinociceptive effect from Ipomoea cairica extract.
Ipomoea cairica ethanolic extract induced dose-dependent reduction of response in the formalin test inflammatory phase in mice, but the same dose range did not modify neurogenic pain in formalinTest, tail-flick reflex latency, carrageenan-induced paw edema, and Rota-Rod test motor performance.
Trypanocidal activity and redox potential of heterocyclic- and 2-hydroxy-naphthoquinones
Abstract With the aim of understanding the influence of redox potentials on the trypanocidal activity, a series of quinones were tested in vitro with trypomastigotes of Trypanosoma cruzi and their
In vitro activity of natural and synthetic naphthoquinones against erythrocytic stages of Plasmodium falciparum.
The antimalarial activity of the naphthoquinones against drug-resistant strains was superior to that of chloroquine and quinine which were used as controls and will be promising candidates for treatment of human malaria particularly since they are easily synthesized.
Neutralizing properties of Musa paradisiaca L. (Musaceae) juice on phospholipase A2, myotoxic, hemorrhagic and lethal activities of crotalidae venoms.
According to the results, using mice as experimental model, MsE does not show protection against the toxic effects of snake venoms in vivo, but if was very effective when the experiments were done in vitro.
