The crude saponin mixture (CSM), compounds 1 and 2 together with 3 and 4 (prosapogenins obtained from the mild alkaline hydrolysate of the CSM), were evaluated for immunomodulatory activity on the Jurkat T cell line and for hemolytic property against sheep erythrocytes.
Activity-guided isolation of antileishmanial compounds from Piper hispidum
Thiodiketopiperazines with two spirocyclic centers extracted from Botryosphaeria mamane, an endophytic fungus isolated from Bixa orellana L.
Allelopathic effects on cowpea ( Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp) plant and cytotoxic activities of sterols and triterpenes isolated from Justicia anselliana (NEES) T. Anders
This is the first report of the allelopathic activities of lupeol, stigmasterol and β-sitosterol on cowpea (Vigna unguiculata).
Terminalia albida treatment improves survival in experimental cerebral malaria through reactive oxygen species scavenging and anti-inflammatory properties
In vivo anti-malarial activity was related to anti-inflammatory properties, as Terminalia albida treatment decreased T lymphocyte recruitment and expression of pro-inflammatory markers in brains of treated mice, and these properties were confirmed in vitro in the non- malarial model.
