Anti-Alzheimer and antioxidant activities of Coptidis Rhizoma alkaloids.
Goenlandicine may be a promising anti-AD agent due to its potent inhibitory activity of both ChEs and beta-amyloids formation, as well as marked ONOO(-) scavenging and good ROS inhibitory capacities.

Anti-hyperlipidemic effect of an edible brown algae, Ecklonia stolonifera, and its constituents on poloxamer 407-induced hyperlipidemic and cholesterol-fed rats
Results suggest that phlorotannins such as eckol and dieckol have the potential for use for the prevention of hyperlipidemic atherosclerosis.
Inhibitory phlorotannins from the edible brown algaecklonia stolonifera on total reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation
To discover sources of antioxidative activity in marine algae, extracts from 17 kinds of seaweed were screened for their inhibitory effect on total ROS generation in kidney homogenate using 2′,7′-dichlorofluorescein diacetate (DCFH-DA).
Tyrosinase inhibitors isolated from the edible brown algaEcklonia stolonifera
This work showed that phloroglucinol derivatives, natural compounds found in brown algae, could be involved in the control of pigmentation in plants and other organisms through inhibition of tyrosinase activity using L-tyrosine as a substrate.
Angiotensin-converting enzyme I inhibitory activity of phlorotannins from Ecklonia stolonifera
As part of our study of the isolation of antihypertensive agents derived from natural marine products, the bioactivity of 10 edible Korean seaweeds were screened by angiotensin converting enzyme
Rat lens aldose reductase inhibitory constituents of Nelumbo nucifera stamens
The methanol extract of the stamens of Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn was shown to exert an inhibitory effect on rat lens aldose reductase (RLAR), and thus was fractionated using several organic solvents, including dichloromethane, ethyl acetate and n‐butanol.
