BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES Drug resistant microbes are a serious challenge to human health. During the search for novel antibiotics/inhibitors from the agricultural soil, a bacterial colony was found to inhibit the growth of clinical isolates including Staphylococcus (resistant to amikacin, ciprofloxacin, clindamycin, clinafloxacin, erythromycin, gentamicin(More)
Identifying specific plant secondary metabolites that influence feeding behavior can be challenging, but a solid understanding of animal preferences can guide efforts. Common brushtail possums (Trichosurus vulpecula) predominantly eat Eucalyptus species belonging to the subgenus Symphyomyrtus, and avoid eating those belonging to the Monocalyptus subgenus(More)
Potentilla fulgens root traditionally used as a folk remedy in Meghalaya, India. However, systematic evaluation of its anticancer efficacy was limited. We investigated the anticancer potentials of the various extracts prepared by partitioning of the methanol extract of the root with the aim to discover major contributing factors from the most effective(More)
A series of 22 furanocoumarin derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for cytotoxicity against breast cancer (MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231) and prostate cancer (PC-3) cell lines along with normal cell line. Several analogs were synthesized by replacing prenyl moiety with alkyl, aromatic, and heteroaromatic functionality to study the structure–activity(More)
The pathogenesis of virus infections of the nervous system (NS) is regulated by host defenses. The defensive role of a major constitutive antiviral substance was studied by determining its distribution in the human nervous system, its concentration and the ability of this viral inhibitor to protect mice against viral infection. The 4000 kDa inhibitor(More)
