Susceptibility of oral bacteria to Melaleuca alternifolia (tea tree) oil in vitro.
It is indicated that a range of oral bacteria are susceptible to tea tree oil, suggesting thatTea tree oil may be of use in oral healthcare products and in the maintenance of oral hygiene. Expand
GC-MS studies on Andrographis paniculata (Burm.f.) Wall. ex Nees - A medicinally important plant
The present study was aimed to examine the phytochemical constituents present in Andrographis paniculata (Burm.f.) Wall. ex Nees. The preliminary phytochemical constituents were qualitativelyExpand
Phytochemical studies on the terpenoids of medicinally important plant Aerva lanata L. using HPTLC
Abstract Objective To elucidate the terpenoids profile of Aerva lanata ( A. lanata ) using high performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC). Methods Preliminary phytochemical screening was done andExpand
Estimation of bioconcentration in marine species using structure-activity models
The results suggest that freshwater models can be used to predict the BCF of a chemical in marine species, since the slopes of the freshwater models were within the 95% confidence intervals for marine models. Expand
Estimation of toxicity to marine species with structure-activity models developed to estimate toxicity to freshwater fish☆
Significant linear and polynomial relationships existed between reported 96-h LC 50 values for each marine species and log P (log octanol/water partition coefficient), indicating that models developed with log P for freshwater fish can be used to estimate toxicity to C. variegatus. Expand
Micropropagation of Crataeva magna (Lour.) DC.⎯A medicinal plant
Rapid multiplication of C. magna, a medicinal plant, was achieved by culturing nodal segments on Murashige and Skoog’s (MS) medium supplemented with sucrose (3%) and different concentrations ofExpand
A Chromatographic Study on the Glycosides of Aerva lanata L.
The results of the present study supplemented the folkloric usage of the studied plants which possess several known and unknown bioactive compounds with bio-activity by isolating and identifying these bioactive compound new drugs can be formulated to treat various diseases. Expand
Inter Specific Variation Studies on Cyathea Species Using Phyto- chemical and Fluorescence Analysis
Phytochemical profile on various extracts of selected Cyathea species were analyzed using qualitative chemical tests to find the chemical constituents of the studied Cy athea species which may lead to quantitative estimation and also in locating the source of bioactive principles for various pharmacological properties.
