Antioxidant activity of plant extracts containing phenolic compounds.
TLDR
High activities were found in tree materials, especially in willow bark, spruce needles, pine bark and cork, and birch phloem, and in some medicinal plants including heather, bog-rosemary, willow herb, and meadowsweet and potato peel and beetroot peel extracts showed strong antioxidant effects. Expand
Antimicrobial effects of Finnish plant extracts containing flavonoids and other phenolic compounds.
TLDR
Flavone, quercetin and naringenin were effective in inhibiting the growth of the organisms and purple loosestrife was the most active plant extracts against gram-positive Staphylococcus aureus. Expand
What made sesquiterpene lactones reach cancer clinical trials?
TLDR
This review focuses on the chemical and biological properties of SLs that lead to enhanced anticancer and anti-inflammatory effects. Expand
Ethnobotanical and antimicrobial investigation on some species of Terminalia and Combretum (Combretaceae) growing in Tanzania.
TLDR
The results of the antimicrobial screening support the ethnomedical uses of these plants, which have medical applications against various bacterial infections, and against symptoms like diarrhoea, hypertension and even cancer. Expand
Natural products in the process of finding new drug candidates.
TLDR
The detection of natural compounds active against C. pneumoniae is presented as an example and can be guided by epidemiologic studies facilitated with computer assisted HPLC microfractionation and microplate technology. Expand
Differential inhibition of coumarin 7-hydroxylase activity in mouse and human liver microsomes.
TLDR
The results suggest that the coumarin-type compounds in particular interact with the active sites of Cyp2a-5 and CYP2A6, and the active Sites are structurally different, since a number of compounds inhibited mouse, but not human COH activity. Expand
Bioactivity of certain Egyptian Ficus species.
TLDR
The fruit extracts of Ficus sycomorus, benjamina, bengalensis and religiosa had significant antibacterial activity, but no antifungal activity, which support the traditional use of these plants in folk medicine for respiratory disorders and certain skin diseases. Expand
Antimicrobial activity of some coumarin containing herbal plants growing in Finland.
TLDR
Sensitivity to methanol extracts was found to vary considerably among the micro-organisms, the extract from Petroselinum crispum and Ruta graveolens showing the highest toxicity against Rhizoctonia solani. Expand
Reactive oxygen species mediate thymoquinone-induced apoptosis and activate ERK and JNK signaling
TLDR
Evidence is presented linking the pro-oxidant effects of TQ with its apoptotic effects in colon cancer and prove a protective role of MAPK. Expand
Effect of eluent on the ionization efficiency of flavonoids by ion spray, atmospheric pressure chemical ionization, and atmospheric pressure photoionization mass spectrometry.
TLDR
Results show that negative ion IS with an eluent system consisting of acidic ammonium acetate buffer provides the best conditions for detection of flavonoids in mass spectrometry mode, their LODs being between 0.8 and 13 microM for an injection volume of 20 microl. Expand
