Fatty acid profile, thymoquinone content, oxidative stability, and antioxidant properties of cold-pressed black cumin seed oils
Abstract Six different batches of cold-pressed black cumin seed oils (BCSO) were evaluated for their fatty acid profiles, thymoquinone contents, oxidative stability, and antioxidant properties.Expand
Metabolites from Aspergillus fumigatus, an endophytic fungus associated with Melia azedarach, and their antifungal, antifeedant, and toxic activities.
Thirty-nine fungal metabolites 1-39, including two new alkaloids, 12β-hydroxy-13α-methoxyverruculogen TR-2 (6) and 3-hydroxyfumiquinazoline A (16), were isolated from the fermentation broth ofExpand
Phenolics Content and Antioxidant Activity of Tartary Buckwheat from Different Locations
This study suggests that tartary buckwheat has potential health benefits because of its high phenolic content and antioxidant properties and these components could also be enhanced by optimizing the growing conditions of a selected variety. Expand
Cytotoxic Metabolites Produced by Alternaria No.28, an Endophytic Fungus Isolated from Ginkgo biloba
From the medicinal plant Ginkgo biloba the fungal endophyte Alternaria no.28 was isolated and exhibited marked cytotoxic activity when tested in vitro against brine shrimp (Artemia salina), and eight compounds were isolated from the extract of cultures. Expand
Bioactive metabolites produced by Chaetomium globosum, an endophytic fungus isolated from Ginkgo biloba.
A novel cytotoxic chlorinated azaphilone derivative named chaetomugilin D has been isolated by a bioassay-guided fractionation from the EtOAc extract of the cultures of Chaetomium globosum, an endophytic fungus found in the leaves of Ginkgo biloba. Expand
Chaetoglobosins from Chaetomium globosum, an endophytic fungus in Ginkgo biloba, and their phytotoxic and cytotoxic activities.
The cytotoxic activities against HCT116 human colon cancer cells were tested, and compounds 1 and 8-10 showed remarkable cytotoxicity with IC50 values ranging from 3.15 to 8.44 μM, in comparison to the positive drug etoposide. Expand
Azaphilones: chemistry and biology.
This paper aims to demonstrate the efforts towards sustainable resource utilization in the field of bioresource chemistry and its applications in the context of integrated resource management and integrated resource utilization. Expand
Preparation of a Carbon-Based Solid Acid Catalyst by Sulfonating Activated Carbon in a Chemical Reduction Process
AC-SO3H exhibited comparable and even much higher catalytic activities than the commercial catalysts in the esterification of aliphatic acids with longer carbon chains such as hexanoic acids and decanoic acid, which may be due to the large specific surface area and mesoporous structures of the activated carbon.

Cyathane diterpenes from Chinese mushroom Sarcodon scabrosus and their neurite outgrowth-promoting activity.
Two novel cyathane diterpenoids, designated scabronines K and L, were isolated from the fruiting bodies of the basidiomycete Sarcodon scabrosus together with four known analogues and only sarcodonins G and A showed significant neurite outgrowth (neuritegenesis)-promoting activity in the presence of 20 ng/mL NGF after 24h treatment.

Antifungal metabolites from Chaetomium globosum , an endophytic fungus in Ginkgo biloba
From the culture of an endophyte Chaetomium globosum found in Ginkgo biloba, twelve metabolites, including three diketopiperazines, two cytochalasins, two sterols, two simple phenolic compounds, oneExpand
