The activity-guided fractionation of the ethanol extract of leaves of Annona diversifolia Saff., led to the isolation of palmitone (16-hentriacontanone) as the only anticonvulsant active compound. This aliphatic ketone was highly effective to diminish pentylenetetrazole (PTZ)-induced clonic-tonic seizures and toxicity. Also, it produced a prolongation of(More)
The effects of an ethanol extract of the aerial parts of Ruta chalepensis on the central nervous system (CNS) and LD(50) determination were studied in mice. A crude extract was given systemically and its effects were tested on pentylenetetrazole (PTZ)-induced seizures, sodium pentobarbital-induced hypnosis, exploratory activity, anxiety and nociception.(More)
Croton reflexifolius H. B. K (Euphorbiaceae) is a very common medicinal plant in the Huastecan region of Mexico that, according to local folk medicine, is considered useful in the treatment of gastritis and gastric ulcer. We have aimed to test the validity of this practice by using the experimental model of an ethanol-induced gastric ulcer in male Wistar(More)
Chemical investigation of the aerial parts of Senecio polypodioides lead to the isolation of the new eudesmanoid 1β-angeloyloxyeudesm-7-ene-4β,9α-diol (1) and the known dirhamnosyl flavonoid lespidin (3), while from roots, the known 7β-angeloyloxy-1-methylene-8α-pyrrolizidine (5) and sarracine N-oxide (6), as well as the new neosarracine N-oxide (8), were(More)
Nonpolar and medium polarity fractions from whole plant methanolic extracts of Stevia monardifolia afforded the new 7beta-angeloyloxy-8alpha-isovaleroyloxylongipin-2-en-1-one 1 along with known 7beta,8alpha-diangeloyloxylongipin-2-en-1-one 2 and 7beta,8alpha-diangeloyloxylongipinan-1-one 3. Alkaline hydrolysis of a mixture of 1 and 2 gave(More)
