Lactuca indica L. (Compositae family) is used as a folk medicine in anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antidiabetic, and other medications in Asia. The objectives of this study were to evaluate the antiproliferative effect of ethanol extracts of Lactuca indica L. (EEL) on human leukemic HL-60 cell lines and its active components. The results showed that EEL(More)
The components of a natural medium were optimized to produce cellulase from a marine Aspergillus niger under solid state fermentation conditions by response surface methodology. Eichhornia crassipes and natural seawater were used as a major substrate and a source of mineral salts, respectively. Mineral salts of natural seawater could increase cellulase(More)
The objectives of this study were to study the antioxidant activities and nitric oxide (NO) scavenging effects of vegetables in vitro systems and to study the inhibitory effects of vegetables on the NO production and NO-induced DNA damage in RAW 264.7 macrophage. The results indicated that water extracts from Indian lotus, Jew's ear, shiitake, eggplant, and(More)
The exposure of mammalian cells to UV light induces various deleterious responses. Some of the major harmful effects are DNA damage, cell membrane peroxidation, systemic immune suppression, and aging acceleration. Reactive oxygen species and free radicals are believed to be largely responsible for some of the deleterious effects of UV upon cells. Typical(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the antioxidant activity, antiglycation property, and bioactive components content of different solvent extracts from Chinese olive (Canarium album L.) fruit. METHODS The dry powder of Chinese olive fruit was extracted with different solvents, i.e., water, water/ethanol (1/1, v/v), ethanol, methanol, acetone and ethyl acetate. The(More)
