Chemical composition, antimicrobial and antioxidant activity of the essential oil of Teucrium marum (Lamiaceae).
The chemical composition of the essential oil obtained from Teucrium marum subsp. marum (Lamiaceae) was analysed by GC/MS and 30 components were identified. Isocaryophyllene (20.24%), beta-bisaboleneExpand
The role of the monoterpene composition inPinus spp. needles, in host selection by the pine processionary caterpillar,Thaumetopoea pityocampa
Preliminary results on attempts to extract and characterize the volatile secondary metabolites contained in needles of differentPinus species and to ascertain the role played by these substances on the behavior of Thaumetopoea pityocampa females show a marked preference, during the oviposition period, for some indigenous and exotic species of host plants existing in mixed formation.

Anthraquinone profile and chemical fingerprint of Rhamnus saxatilis L. from Italy
Abstract Several species belonging to the genus Rhamnus (Rhamnaceae), comprising ones among which are found the most typical plants of the Italian flora, are known to contain biologically activeExpand
The effect of triacontanol on micropropagation and on secretory system of Thymus mastichina
A positive effect of triacontanol on the growth of micropropagated plantlets using different conditions and there was no correlation between changes in the oil yield and glandular hairs density, but the yield was dependent on the secretory stage of the glands. Expand
Composition and Antifungal Activity of Two Essential Oils of Hyssop (Hyssopus officinalis L.)
The oils showed antifungal activity against 13 strains of phytopathogenic fungi; the activity of the oil extracted from plants grown at 1000 m above sea level showed higher activity. Expand
Composition and in vitro Antifungal Activity of Essential Oils of Erigeron canadensis and Myrtus communis from France
Essential oils of Erigeron canadensis L. and Myrtus communis L. were tested in vitro as growth inhibitors against phytopathogenic fungi and showed weak fungicidal acitivity, except the essential oil of M. communis that exerted a 60% growth inhibition against R. Solani. Expand
Chromatographic methods for metabolite profiling of virus- and phytoplasma-infected plants of Echinacea purpurea.
The results indicate that the presence of virus and phytoplasma has an appreciable influence on the content of E. purpurea secondary metabolites, which is an important issue in defining the commercial quality, market value, and therapeutic efficacy of this herbal drug. Expand
Dietary administration with prenyloxycoumarins, auraptene and collinin, inhibits colitis‐related colon carcinogenesis in mice
Feeding with auraptene or collinin, at both doses, significantly inhibited the occurrence of colonic adenocarcinoma and may suggest that certain prenyloxycoumarins could serve as an effective agent against colitis‐related colon cancer development in rodents. Expand
