Anti- and Pro-Lipase Activity of Selected Medicinal, Herbal and Aquatic Plants, and Structure Elucidation of an Anti-Lipase Compound
To evaluate the aqueous methanolic extracts of ninety eight medicinal, herbal and aquatic plant materials from Malaysia for their effect on porcine pancreatic lipase (PPL) activity and to identify the structure of an anti-lipase compound from one of the sources, the degree of inhibition was quantified as relative to orlistat activity against PPL (orlistat equivalents).
Screening of Malaysian Medicinal/Herbs and Aquatic Plants for Pancreatic Lipase Inhabitory Activities and Identification of Active Constituent
The compounds that help to slow down the digestion of triacylglycerols inside pancreatic and small intestine of human play an important role in the control of obesity. In this study the effects of
Chemical profile and antiacetylcholinesterase, antityrosinase, antioxidant and α-glucosidase inhibitory activity of Cynometra cauliflora L. leaves.
C. cauliflora, the leaves in particular, is a rich source of bioactive compounds and could be beneficial for further development of high-value phytomedicinal preparations and functional food products.
Flavonoids from Cynometra cauliflora and Their Antioxidant, α-Glucosidase, and Cholinesterase Inhibitory Activities
Cynometra cauliflora L. (vernacular name “nam-nam”) is a small branched perennial tree that is 3–5 meters tall with flowers and fruits on its rough, gray-brown and robust trunk and belongs to the
Acetylcholinesterase and α-glucosidase inhibitory compounds from Callicarpa maingayi
Six (6) compounds are reported for the first time from this species and their structures were elucidated and identified by extensive NMR techniques, GC-MS and comparison with the previously reported literature.
