Chemical composition, insecticidal and insect repellent activity of Schinus molle L. leaf and fruit essential oils against Trogoderma granarium and Tribolium castaneum
Fruit and leaf essential oils of Schinus molle showed insect repellent and insecticidal activity against Trogoderma granarium and Tribolium castaneum and p-Cymene was identified as a major component in both oils. Expand
In Vitro activities of plant extracts from Saudi Arabia against malaria, leishmaniasis, sleeping sickness and Chagas disease
The in vitro activity of the methanol extracts of 51 plants randomly collected from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and some of their fractions were evaluated against Plasmodium falciparum, Trypanosoma Brucei brucei, T. cruzi and Leishmania infantum, as well as toxicity against MRC‐5 fibroblast cells, showing promising antiprotozoal activity.

Methanolic extract of Marrubium vulgare ameliorates hyperglycemia and dyslipidemia in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats
The present data suggest that M. vulgare’s methanolic extract has antihyperglycemic with antidyslipidemic effect, and the protective effect of the extract may be in part due to its antioxidant activity. Expand
Acylated pregnane glycosides from Caralluma russeliana.
The chloroform extract of the aerial parts of Caralluma russeliana yielded four acylated pregnane glycosides, namely russeliosides E-H, three were found now. The structures of the compounds wereExpand
Antitrypanosomal activity of some pregnane glycosides isolated from Caralluma species.
Pregnane glycosides previously isolated from genus Caralluma (C. Penicillata, C. tuberculata and C. russelliana) were tested and it was noticed that acylation is required for the antitrypanosomal activity while glycosylation at C-20 has no significant effect on the activity. Expand
Cardenolides and ${\beta}$-Sitosterol Glucoside from Pergularia tomentosa L.
The aerial parts of Pergularia tomentosa L. afforded three cardenolides, desglucouzarin, coroglaucigenin and uzarigenin, in addition to β-sitosterol glucoside. The isolated compounds were identifiedExpand
Profiling of phenolic and other compounds from Egyptian cultivars of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) and antioxidant activity: a comparative study
Chickpeas are basic food in many countries with several cultivars distributed all over the world. However, little is known about their secondary metabolites. Thus, this work is focused on the studyExpand
Acylated pregnane glycosides from Caralluma tuberculata and their antiparasitic activity.
Five pregnane glycosides were isolated from Caralluma tuberculata in addition to a known one (russelioside E, 6) and all the isolated compounds were tested for their antimalarial and antitrypanosomal activities as well as their cytotoxicity against human diploid embryonic cell line (MRC5). Expand
Protective effect of bilberry (Vaccinium myrtillus) against doxorubicin-induced oxidative cardiotoxicity in rats
Bilberry protects against DOX-induced cardiotoxicity in rats, and can be attributed, at least in part, to its antioxidant activity. Expand
