The hypoglycaemic effect of orally administered extracts of fruits of cultivated Momordica charantia (karela) was examined in normal and streptozotocin diabetic mice. In normal mice, an aqueous extract (A) lowered the glycaemic response to both oral and intraperitoneal glucose, without altering the insulin response. This aqueous extract (A) and the residue… (More)
The advent of transgenic technology has greatly facilitated the study of mutation in animals in vivo. The Big Blue mouse system, transgenic for the lacI gene, permits not only the quantification of mutations in different tissues but also provides for the generation of in vivo-derived mutational spectra. This report details the sequence alterations of 348… (More)
From the trunk bark of Odyendea gabonensis six indole alkaloids have been isolated: Canthin-6-one (I); 5-Methoxy-canthin-6-one (II); 4,5-Dimethoxycanthin-6-one (III); 8-Hydroxy-canthin-6-one (IV); 1-Hydroxy-methyl-beta-carboline (V); and 1-Carboxamide-beta-carboline (VI). This is the first report of these products from this plant.
