A bioassay-guided fractionation and chemical examination of antihyperglycemic root extract of Derris indica resulted in isolation and characterization of two new furanoflavanoids (1, 2) along with thirteen known compounds (3-15). Their structures were determined on the basis of extensive spectroscopic (IR, MS, 1D and 2D NMR) data analysis and by comparison(More)
In the present article, we report the in vitro and in vivo delivery of doxorubicin using biosynthesized gold nanoparticles (b-Au-PP). Gold nanoparticles were synthesized by a simple, fast, efficient, environmentally friendly and economical green chemistry approach using an extract of Peltophorum pterocarpum (PP) leaves. Because the biosynthesized b-Au-PP(More)
α-Glucosidase inhibition and DPPH free radical scavenging by 5-bromosalicylaldehyde and some Schiff bases have been measured. 5-Bromosalicylaldehyde shows lowest IC50 value (8.80 μM) for α-glucosidase inhibition and also shows good results in in vivo experiments for antihyperglycemic potential.
This research analyzed the major chemical components and multiple antioxidant activities present in the fresh juice of eight vegetables, and studied their influence on starch induced postprandial glycemia in rats. A SDS-PAGE based protein fingerprint of each vegetable juice was also prepared. The yields of juice, chemical components like total proteins,(More)
Series of 3,4- and 3,6-disubstituted chromenones including new chromenone derivatives were synthesized applying various synthetic strategies including Pechmann condensation, Knoevenagel condensation, Reimer-Tiemann reaction and Suzuki coupling in very good yields. Synthesized compounds (4a-z) were screened for in vitro alpha-glucosidase inhibitory and(More)
A series of furanochalcone derivatives have been designed and synthesized. Molecular modeling studies were carried out to probe into the mechanism of binding of chalcone inhibitors and understand the structure–activity relationship to identify the contribution of scaffolds and groups in the synthesized analogs to biological activity. The three-dimensional(More)
The present study was designed to evaluate the anti-inflammatory and antiarthritic activity of the new synthetic thienopyridine analogs. The anti-inflammatory activity of thienopyridines was assayed by using carrageenan; dextran and arachidonic acid induced paw edema models (acute), cotton pellet granuloma model (Sub acute) and Freund's complete adjuvant(More)
OBJECTIVE Consumption of green-leafy vegetables is being advocated beneficial for type 2 diabetes mellitus individuals possibly because they are cost effective source of potent biological antioxidants. This research analyzed various phytochemicals, free radicals scavenging antioxidant potentials and starch digesting enzymes inhibitory activities in fresh(More)
INTRODUCTION Consumption of highly processed calories dense diet leads abrupt increase in postprandial blood glucose level, which in turn induces immediate oxidative stress. Postprandial hyperglycemia (PPHG) and resultant oxidative stress is one of the earliest detectable abnormalities in diabetes prone individuals, independent risk factor for development(More)
BACKGROUND Cyperus scariosus R. Br and Cyperus rotundus L are widely used in ayurvedic preparation for the treatment of diabetes and other diseases. The early literature, so far, does not indicate the presence of any bioactive principle isolated from these plants. OBJECTIVE To identify free radical scavenging, anti-diabetic and anti- inflammatory(More)
