The Neoflavonoid Latifolin Isolated from MeOH Extract of Dalbergia odorifera Attenuates Inflammatory Responses by Inhibiting NF‐κB Activation via Nrf2‐Mediated Heme Oxygenase‐1 Expression
Results suggested that the latifolin‐mediated up‐regulation of HO‐1 expression played a critical role in anti‐inflammatory effects in macrophages. Expand
Hepatoprotective and free radical scavenging activities of phenolic petrosins and flavonoids isolated from Equisetum arvense.
The results support the use of this plant for the treatment of hepatitis in oriental traditional medicine. Expand
Inhibition of angiotensin converting enzyme by lithospermic acid B isolated from radix Salviae miltiorrhiza Bunge
Results suggest that RSM‐induced antihypertensive effect may be, at least in part, due to ACE inhibitory effect of LSB. Expand
Lithospermic acid B isolated from Salvia miltiorrhiza ameliorates ischemia/reperfusion-induced renal injury in rats.
Data indicate that LSB ameliorates renal defects in rats with ischemia-reperfusion induced ARF, most likely via scavenging of ROS. Expand

An organic layer prepared from the Chinese crude drug 'Sang-Bai-Pi' (Morus root bark) was studied in order to identify the inhibitory compounds for protein tyrosine phosphatase 1B (PTP1B).Expand
Isolation of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory flavonoids from Sedum sarmentosum.
Bioassay-guided fractionation of the EtOAc-soluble extract of Sedum sarmentosum afforded a new flavonoid, quercetin-3-O-alpha-(6'''-caffeoylglucosyl-beta-1,2-rhamnoside) (1), along with four knownExpand
Inhibitory effect of jaceosidin isolated from Artemisiaargyi on the function of E6 and E7 oncoproteins of HPV 16.
Collectively, jaceosidin inhibited the functions of the E6 and E7 oncoproteins of the human papillomavirus, suggesting that this compound might be used as a potential drug for the treatment of cervical cancers associated with the human Papillomvirus. Expand
The inhibition of JNK MAPK and NF-κB signaling by tenuifoliside A isolated from Polygala tenuifolia in lipopolysaccharide-induced macrophages is associated with its anti-inflammatory effect.
The root of Polygala tenuifolia Willd. (Polygalaceae) is well known for its use in the treatment of neurasthenia, amnesia, and inflammation. In this study, we isolated phenyl propanoid typeExpand
Imperatorin, a furanocoumarin from Angelica dahurica (Umbelliferae), induces cytochrome c-dependent apoptosis in human promyelocytic leukaemia, HL-60 Cells.
Imperatorin, a biologically active furanocoumarin from the roots of Angelica dahurica (Umbelliferae), was found to induce apoptosis in human promyelocytic leukaemia, HL-60 cells and the cytochrome c/caspase-9 pathway was responsible for imperatorin-induced apoptosis. Expand
Protuboxepins A and B and protubonines A and B from the marine-derived fungus Aspergillus sp. SF-5044.
Two new oxepin-containing (1 and 2) and two diketopiperazine-type alkaloids (3 and 4) have been isolated from an EtOAc extract of the marine-derived fungus Aspergillus sp. SF-5044. The structures ofExpand
