Phytochemical analysis of Andrographis paniculata extract and its antimicrobial activity
This is the first report on analysis of antimicrobial components from A. paniculata, and the results confer the utility of this plant extract in developing a novel broad spectrum antimicrobial agent.
Isothiocyanate profile and selective antibacterial activity of root, stem, and leaf extracts derived from Raphanus sativus L.
Acetone and hexane extracts derived from the root, stem, and leaf of Raphanus sativus were investigated for their antibacterial activity against foodborne and resistant pathogens, such as Bacillus
Optimization of keratinase production and enzyme activity using response surface methodology with streptomyces sp7
The results of analysis of variance and regression of a second-order model showed that the linear effects of feather meal concentration and NaCl and the interactive effects of all variables were more significant and that values of the quadratic effects of feathers meal, K2HPO4, KH2PO4, pH, and pH were moresignificant than the linear and interactiveeffects of the process variables.
Design and synthesis of 1-aroyl-2-ylidene hydrazines under conventional and microwave irradiation conditions and their cytotoxic activities
We report the design and synthesis of 1-aroyl-2-(alkenyl/aryl)idene hydrazines as hybrid molecules derived from mefenamic acid and substituted hydrazones. A number of compounds based on this new
Hexane Extract of Raphanus sativus L. Roots Inhibits Cell Proliferation and Induces Apoptosis in Human Cancer Cells by Modulating Genes Related to Apoptotic Pathway
These findings present the first evidence that hexane extract of R. sativus root exerts potential chemopreventive efficacy and induces apoptosis in cancer cell lines through modulation of genes involved in apoptotic signaling pathway.
Polyphenolics profile and antioxidant properties of Raphanus sativus L.
Water extract could be more pertinent to human nutrition as it contained a significant amount of catechin, which was comparable to traditional sources like green and black tea, and methanolic extract showed significant ferric reducing ability, moderate metal chelating activity and strong radical scavenging activity.
Identification and characterization of EST-SSRs in finger millet (Eleusine coracana (L.) Gaertn.)
This study has demonstrated the potential of EST-derived SSR primer pairs in finger millet and these primers will serve as valuable source for further breeding programs.
