The consumption of fruits and vegetables is accepted to be one of the strategies to reduce risk factors for these diseases. The aim of this study was to examine potential relationships between the antioxidant and the antiplatelet activities in green mature and fully ripe (red) tomatoes and of lycopene-rich byproducts of tomato paste processing such as(More)
In seeking the functionality of foodstuff applicable to medicine, ripe tomato fruits were found to show an antiplatelet activity. Therefore, the bioactive compound was isolated, structurally identified, and studied for an inhibitory effects on platelet adhesion, secretion, and aggregation. The concentration of adenosine in ripe tomato fruits (pulp and skin(More)
In the past 30 years, only three natural products have been sources of new drugs with antiplatelet activity. In this study, we have demonstrated for the first time that guanosine from Solanum lycopersicum possesses antiplatelet (secretion, spreading, adhesion and aggregation) activity in vitro and inhibition of platelet inflammatory mediator of(More)
An examination of peridomestic area organization and triatomine collection in an endemic village for Chagas disease (Jalisco State) identified the habitat of Triatoma longipennis (dominant species) and the risk factors of peridomestic infestation. In 100 visited peridomestic areas, 369 structures (permanent, temporary, and natural) were submitted to active(More)
Seven synthetic tetrahydroquinolines with different substitution patterns were obtained by an imino Diels-Alder condensation reaction and were evaluated against phytopathogenic fungi. Compounds with a methoxy group showed interesting activity against Cladosporium cladosporoides with a MIC value of 13.75 microg/mL
New N-allyl/propargyl 4-substituted 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinolines derivatives were efficiently synthesized using acid-catalyzed three components cationic imino Diels-Alder reaction (70-95%). All compounds were tested in vitro as dual acetylcholinesterase and butyryl-cholinesterase inhibitors and their potential binding modes, and affinity, were predicted by(More)
A small series of tetrahydroindazoles was prepared, starting from 2-acetylcyclohexanone and different hydrazines using reflux and a focused microwave reactor. Microwave irradiation (MW) favored the formation of the desired products with improved yields and shortened reaction times. This is a simple and green method for the synthesis of substituted(More)
The tetrahydroquinoline ring system is a unit found in many biologically active natural products and pharmacologically relevant therapeutic agents. A new series of bistetrahydroquinolines (bis-THQs) was synthesized using imino Diels-Alder reactions between dialdehydes, anilines and N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone (NVP). The notable features of this procedure are mild(More)
The title compound, C(28)H(24)N(4)O(4)·H(2)O, crystallizes with two organic mol-ecules and two solvent water mol-ecules in the asymmetric unit. The most obvious difference between the mol-ecules is the torsion angles between the isoxazole ring and the benzene and phenyl rings [47.0 (2)/56.4 (2) and 33.3 (2)/11.0 (2)°, respectively]. Another important(More)
