Cytotoxic effect of leaf essential oil of Lippia gracilis Schauer (Verbenaceae).
TLDR
Data suggest that leaf essential oil of L. gracilis leaves, which has thymol as its major constituent, possesses significant in vitro and in vivo antitumor activity, and is a potential medicinal resource. Expand
Antitumour properties of the leaf essential oil of Xylopia frutescens Aubl. (Annonaceae).
TLDR
The essential oil was dominated by sesquiterpene constituents and has some interesting anticancer activity. Expand
Trypanocidal Activity of Oxoaporphine and Pyrimidine-β-Carboline Alkaloids from the Branches of Annona foetida Mart. (Annonaceae)
Phytochemical investigation of the branches of Annona foetida Mart. led to isolation from the CH2Cl2 extract of four alkaloids: Atherospermidine (1), described for the first time in this species,Expand
Antitumor Effect of the Essential Oil from Leaves of Guatteria pogonopus (Annonaceae)
TLDR
The essential oil showed significant in vitro and in vivo antitumor activity in this study, and displayed in vitro cytotoxicity against all three tumor cell lines tested. Expand
In Vitro Atileishmanial and Cytotoxic Activities of Annona mucosa (Annonaceae)
The antileishmanial activity of extracts from the leaves and seeds of Annona mucosa, and of the oxoaporphine alkaloid liriodenine isolated from the dichloromethane extract of the leaves, wereExpand
Insecticidal activity of three species of Guatteria (Annonaceae) against Aedes aegypti (Diptera: Culicidae)
TLDR
The aim of this study was to assess whether the essential oils of Guatteria hispida, G. blepharophylla and G. friesiana have insecticidal effect against A. aegypti under laboratory conditions. Expand
Evaluation of the Anti-Inflammatory and Antinociceptive Effects of the Essential Oil from Leaves of Xylopia laevigata in Experimental Models
TLDR
Evidence is provided for the use of X. laevigata by traditional medicine practitioners in the management of pain and inflammatory disorders and for the possible antioxidant, antinociceptive, and anti-inflammatory effects of EOX in animal models. Expand
CHEMICAL CONSTITUENTS FROM THE STEM BARK OF Annona pickelii (Annonaceae)
TLDR
The phytochemical investigation of the stem bark of Annona pickelii yielded compounds that support their recent reclassification from Rollinia to Annona, and that it is a typical species of the family Annonaceae. Expand
Antimicrobial and antileishmanial activity of essential oil from the leaves of Annona foetida (Annonaceae)
TLDR
A preliminary cytotoxicity assay for this oil was carried out on hamster and mice (Balb/c) peritoneal macrophages and results obtained were similar to pentamidine and considered not to be cytotoxic to macrophage. Expand
7,7-Dimethylaporphine alkaloids from the stem of Guatteriopsis friesiana.
TLDR
Phytochemical investigation of a methanolic extract of the stem of Guatteriopsis friesiana afforded two new 7,7-dimethylaporphine alkaloids, 6,6a-dihydrodemethoxyguadiscine and guatteriopsiscine, which are important for the chemotaxonomy of Guattersiopsis. Expand
