Flavonoids: A versatile source of anticancer drugs
This review focuses on the anticancer activity of flavonoids as well as their molecular mechanisms, including the treatment of mammary and prostate cancer and highlights some advanced derivatives of Flavonoids, which play an important role against cancer. Expand
Antidiabetic and antioxidant potential of β‐sitosterol in streptozotocin‐induced experimental hyperglycemia
The aim of the present study was to evaluate the antioxidant potential of β‐sitosterol (BS), a phytosterol from Solanum surattense, using an experimental model for diabetes‐induced oxidative damage. Expand
Chemical Constituents of Plants from the Genus Litsea
Effect of Saponins of Albizia lebbeck (L.) Benth bark on the reproductive system of male albino rats.
Oral administration of saponins isolated from Albizia lebbeck bark at the dose level of 50 mg/kg/b.w. per day for 60 days to male rats brought about a significant decrease in the weights of testes,Expand
Antispermatogenic Effect and Chemical Investigation of Opuntia dillenii
Oral administration of Opuntia dillenii phylloclade extract to male rats caused a significant decrease in the weights of testes, epididymides, seminal vesicle, and ventral prostate, andMotility of the spermatozoa was reduced significantly. Expand
Methyl pyropheophorbide-a analogues: potential fluorescent probes for the peripheral-type benzodiazepine receptor. Effect of central metal in photosensitizing efficacy.
Pyropheophorbides and their metal complexes were synthesized to investigate their applications as nonradioactive peripheral benzodiazepine receptor (PBR) binding probes and photosensitizers for useExpand
Anti-mycobacterial activity of plumericin and isoplumericin against MDR Mycobacterium tuberculosis.
Both isolated active compounds showed an advantage over rifampicin and isoniazid by being highly active against the MDR strains and opens a possibility of obtaining new anti-mycobacterial drug candidate in near future. Expand
Antiparasitic activity of plumericin & isoplumericin isolated from Plumeria bicolor against Leishmania donovani
In vitro in vitro anti-leishmanial activity of Plumeria bicolor and its isolated compounds indicated that plumericin showed more potent activity than isoplumericin and might be a promising anti- Leishmania donovani agent. Expand
Butanolides from Methanolic Extract of Litsea glutinosa
Phytochemical investigations of a MeOH extract obtained from the heartwoods of the Litsea glutinosa (Lauraceae) led to the isolation and characterization of four new butenolides,Expand
Functionalization of OEP-based benzochlorins to develop carbohydrate-conjugated photosensitizers. Attempt to target beta-galactoside-recognized proteins.
Results in combination with the galectin-binding data indicate a possible beta-galactoside-recognized protein specificity of the galactose- and lactose-benzochlorin conjugates. Expand
