Galls of Quercus infectoria Olivier (Fagaceae) possess pleiotropic therapeutic activities, with particular efficacy against inflammatory diseases. The present study was undertaken to evaluate the effect of alcoholic extract of Q. infectoria galls on various in vivo and in vitro experimental models of inflammation. Oral administration of gall extract(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY To investigate the anti-inflammatory and anti-nociceptive activities of the crude ethanolic extract of Adiantum capillus veneris Linn. (Adiantaceae) and its various fractions. MATERIALS AND METHODS The ethanolic extract and its fractions were given at a dose of 200 mg/kg po and 300 mg/kg po for testing their anti-inflammatory activity by(More)
Thirteen new 2-pyrazoline derivatives bearing benzenesulfonamide moiety (2a-m) were synthesized by condensing appropriate chalcones with 4-hydrazinonbenzenesulfonamide hydrochloride and tested for anticancer and anti-inflammatory actions. According to the protocol of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in vitro disease-oriented human cells screening panel(More)
Glycogen synthase kinase-3 is a multi-functional serine-threonine kinase and is involved in diverse physiological processes, including metabolism, cell cycle, and gene expression by regulating a wide variety of known substrates like glycogen synthase, tau-protein and β-catenin. Aberrant GSK-3 has been involved in diabetes, inflammation, cancer, Alzheimer's(More)
Two compounds isolated from the ethanol extract of the galls of Quercus infectoria. Olivier exhibited nitric oxide (NO) and superoxide [Formula: see text] inhibiting activity. Their structures were established as ellagic acid-4-O.-[β.-D-glucopyranosyl]-10-O.-[β.-D-glucopyranosyl]-(4 → 1)-β.-D-rhamnopyranoside (1) and(More)
A series of novel 2-[4-aryl-5-{(quinolin-8-yloxy)methyl}-4H-1,2,4-triazol-3-ylthio]-1-arylethanones (6a-6j) and 8-{(5-aryl-1,3,4-oxadiazol-2-yl)methoxy}quinolines (7a-7d) were synthesized from the corresponding 4-arnyl-1-(2- quinolin-8-yloxy)acetyl) thiosemicarbazides (4a-4d) and hydrazides (3) respectively. The prepared compounds were screened for their(More)
Despite a significant work on thiadiazoles, continuous efforts are still being made to identify novel heterocyclic compounds with potent biological activities. This review may help the medicinal chemists to develop new leads possessing 1,3,4-thiadiazole nucleus with higher efficacy and reduced side effects. This review throws light on the detailed synthetic(More)
Phytochemical investigation of the aerial parts of Callistemon lanceolatus DC (Myrtaceae) led to the isolation of two new flavones characterized as 5,7-dihydroxy-6,8-dimethyl- 4' -methoxy flavone (1) and 8-(2-hydroxypropan-2-yl)-5-hydroxy-7-methoxy-6-methyl-4'-methoxy flavone (2) along with the seven known phytoconstituents. The structures of new compounds(More)
Terminoside A (1), a new oleanane-type triterpene was isolated from the acetone fraction of the ethanolic extract of stem bark of Terminalia arjuna. The structure was established as olean-1alpha,3beta,22beta-triol-12-en-28-oic acid-3beta-D-glucopyranoside. On the basis of spectral data and chemical reactions, terminoside A, potently inhibited nitric oxide(More)
