Cox-2 inhibitory effects of naturally occurring and modified fatty acids.
In the search for new cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) selective inhibitors, the inhibitory effects of naturally occurring fatty acids and some of their structural derivatives on COX-2-catalyzedExpand

Cyclotides: a novel type of cytotoxic agents.
Cytotoxic activities of three naturally occurring macrocyclic peptides (cyclotides) isolated from the two violets, Viola arvensis Murr. and Viola odorata L., were investigated. A nonclonogenicExpand

Biosynthesis, natural sources, dietary intake, pharmacokinetic properties, and biological activities of hydroxycinnamic acids.
Hydroxycinnamic acids are the most widely distributed phenolic acids in plants. Broadly speaking, they can be defined as compounds derived from cinnamic acid. They are present at high concentrationsExpand

Antifouling activity of brominated cyclopeptides from the marine sponge Geodia barretti.
In this work, we show the potent antifouling effects of two compounds, barettin (cyclo[(6-bromo-8-entryptophan)arginine]) (1), isolated as a Z/E mixture (87/13), and 8,9-dihydrobarettinExpand

Evaluation of anti-inflammatory activity of some Swedish medicinal plants. Inhibition of prostaglandin biosynthesis and PAF-induced exocytosis.
Plants used in Swedish traditional medicine to treat inflammatory diseases and/or wounds were selected, based on literature data, for evaluation of inhibitory activity on prostaglandin biosynthesisExpand

Screening of ubiquitous plant constituents for COX-2 inhibition with a scintillation proximity based assay.
A rapid semi-homogeneous cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) enzymatic assay using scintillation proximity assay (SPA) technology was developed, and 49 ubiquitous plant secondary metabolites were screened forExpand

Antifouling Activity of Bromotyrosine-Derived Sponge Metabolites and Synthetic Analogues
Eighteen brominated sponge-derived metabolites and synthetic analogues were analyzed for antilarval settlement of Balanus improvisus. Only compounds exhibiting oxime substituents including bastadin-3Expand

Seven novel macrocyclic polypeptides from Viola arvensis.
Seven novel macrocyclic polypeptides, designated as varv peptides B-H, have been isolated from the aerial parts of Viola arvensis. Their primary structures have been elucidated by automated EdmanExpand

Development of a radiochemical cyclooxygenase-1 and -2 in vitro assay for identification of natural products as inhibitors of prostaglandin biosynthesis.
A radiochemical enzyme assay for studying cyclooxygenase (COX)-catalyzed prostaglandin biosynthesis in vitro was optimized with respect to both COX-1 and COX-2 activity. The assay can be used toExpand

Functional versus chemical diversity: is biodiversity important for drug discovery?
Prospecting the full biodiversity of nature to find leads for new drugs is not necessary. Because finding leads is aimed at identifying biological activity, structure is of secondary importance.Expand
