The Role of Diallyl Sulfides and Dipropyl Sulfides in the In Vitro Antimicrobial Activity of the Essential Oil of Garlic, Allium sativum L., and Leek, Allium porrum L.
TLDR
The results obtained suggest that the presence of the allyl group is fundamental for the antimicrobial activity of these sulfide derivatives when they are present in Allium or in other species. Expand
Larvicidal and repellent activity of essential oils from wild and cultivated Ruta chalepensis L. (Rutaceae) against Aedes albopictus Skuse (Diptera: Culicidae), an arbovirus vector
TLDR
The results clearly evidenced that the larvicidal and repellent activity of R. chalepensis essential oil could be used for the development of new and safer products against the Asian tiger mosquito. Expand
Clinical and mycological evaluation of an herbal antifungal formulation in canine Malassezia dermatitis.
TLDR
The phytotherapic treatment achieved a good clinical outcome, and no recurrence of skin disorders on day 180th was recorded, and this herbal remedium appeared to be a safe tool for limiting recurrences of CMD. Expand
Chemical composition and antimicrobial activity of essential oil of wild and cultivated Origanum syriacum plants grown in Sinai, Egypt
TLDR
Both EOs showed good antifungal activity against all fungal strains, while EO from cultivated O. syriacum showed high antibacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus with an inhibition zone of 32 ± 4.0 mm. Expand
Characterization of Essential Oil and Effects on Growth of Verbena gratissima Plants Treated with Homeopathic Phosphorus
TLDR
Homeopathic Phosphorus (P) dynamizations were evaluated on the linear growth and dry biomass of Verbena gratissima, a plant native to Brazil, and the yields and chemical characterization of the essential oil are given. Expand
Antibacterial activity of essential oils, their blends and mixtures of their main constituents against some strains supporting livestock mastitis.
TLDR
The EO mixtures and the mixture CD represent promising phytotherapic approaches against bacteria strains responsible for environmental mastitis. Expand
Essential‐Oil Composition of Helichrysum italicum (Roth) G.Don ssp. italicum from Elba Island (Tuscany, Italy)
TLDR
A difference in the composition of the essential oils of H. italicum from Elba Island was obtained, mainly due to the environment where the plant grows, and, in particular, to the soil type, which was confirmed by the comparison of these oils with essential oils obtained from H. Italicum collected on other islands of the Tuscan archipelago. Expand
Mentha longifolia in vitro cultures as safe source of flavouring ingredients.
TLDR
In vitro M. longifolia plantlets and callus may be regarded as a potential source of a safe flavouring agent because of the lack of pulegone and menthofurane, thus preserving an important feature observed in the volatile fingerprint of the parent plants. Expand
N6-1,3-diphenylurea derivatives of 2-phenyl-9-benzyladenines and 8-azaadenines: synthesis and biological evaluation as allosteric modulators of A2A adenosine receptors.
TLDR
It was found that some of these compounds can act as positive enhancers of agonist and antagonist radioligands for the A(2A) adenosine receptors and show inhibitory properties for A(1) and A(3) adenoine receptors. Expand
2,9-disubstituted-N6-(arylcarbamoyl)-8-azaadenines as new selective A3 adenosine receptor antagonists: synthesis, biochemical and molecular modelling studies.
TLDR
Some compounds having a p-methyl group on the 2-phenyl substituent showed a very good affinity and selectivity for the A3 subtype, revealing the first class of A3 adenosine receptor selective antagonists with a bicyclic structure strictly correlated to the adenine nucleus. Expand
