Antioxidant Activity and Total Phenolic Content of 24 Lamiaceae Species Growing in Iran
The study shows that some Lamiaceae plants growing in Iran represent good potential sources of natural antioxidants useful for either prevention or treatment of oxidative stress-related diseases. Expand
Cytotoxic activity and cell cycle analysis of quinoline alkaloids isolated from Haplophyllum canaliculatum Boiss.
Flow cytometry analysis of the compounds resulted in the arrest of cell cycle progression at the sub-G1 phase of the RAJI and Jurkat cell lines in a dose-dependent manner, which could be indicative of the fact that these compounds may act through parallel mechanisms. Expand
Sensory Evaluation of Locally-grown Fruit Purees and Inulin Fibre on Probiotic Yogurt in Mwanza, Tanzania and the Microbial Analysis of Probiotic Yogurt Fortified with Moringa oleifera
The microbial analysis showed that Moringa oleifera did not negatively affect the growth of Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1 in MRS, milk or yogurt, although a significant decrease was found after 5 weeks of storage at 4 oC. Expand
Micro-Macro Algal Mixture as a Promising Agent for Treating POME Discharge and its Potential Use as Animal Feed Stock Enhancer
The main aim of this study is to propose the micro and macroalgae obtained from Palm Oil Mill Effluent (POME) waste water discharge as a promising low-cost-treatment and high-energy method for harvesting the nutritional supplements in order to enhance the animal feedstock production. Expand
Microbial Properties of Probiotic Fermented Milk Supplemented with Ginseng Extracts
Ginseng-fortified samples supported the growth and survival of L. rhamnosus GR-1, as viable counts were detected at each measurement point throughout the 28 d storage period and there is potential for incorporating ginseng extracts in other probiotic dairy products. Expand
The Edible Mushroom Pleurotus spp.: I. Biodiversity and Nutritional Values
This work is focused on reviewing the recent work published in the biodiversity and nutritional content of Pleurotus spp, one of the famous species with many health benefits. Expand
Evaluation of Anti-Herpetic Activity of Methanol Seed Extract and Fractions of Securigera securidaca In vitro
These findings demonstrate that kaempferol and kaEMPferol-7-O-glucoside isolated from S. securidaca may inhibit virus attachment to the cell membrane, virus entry into the cell and viral polymerase. Expand
Cytotoxic Evaluation of Four Haplophyllum. Species with Various Tumor Cell Lines
Testing plant extracts on solid tumor cell lines revealed that all Haplophyllum species have markedly high cytotoxicity against LNCap-FGC-10, a prostate adenocarcinoma cell line, except H. stapfianum. Expand
Linum mucronatum: Organ to Organ Lignan Variations
The highest levels of β-peltatin, 5′-demethoxy-MPTOX and yatein were found in not developed buds, petals and sepals, respectively, while the lowest levels of PTOX, 6-methoxypodophyllotoxin and MPTOX were discovered in the plant sexual organs. Expand
