The adaptative capacity of lichens to UV radiation could be expressed by the production of photo-absorbing secondary metabolites in thalli. A preliminary screening performed on twelve lichen species by high performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC) revealed five major compounds absorbing in the UVA (315-400nm) or UVB (280-315nm) ranges in Diploicia(More)
Bioassay-guided fractionation of an extract of the lichen Cladonia incrassata against Staphylococcus aureus led to a novel compound, 1,5-dihydroxy-2,4,6-trichloro-7-methylxanthone (1), along with six known compounds: (-)-usnic acid (2), didymic acid (3), condidymic acid (4), squamatic acid (5), thamnolic acid (6), and prasinic acid (7). Didymic, condidymic,(More)
The aim of this study was to describe and understand the relationship between cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) expression and apoptosis rate in erythroleukemia cells after apoptosis induction by Berberis libanotica (Bl) extract. To achieve this goal we used erythroleukemia cell lines expressing COX‑2 (HEL cell line) or not (K562 cell line). Moreover, we made use of(More)
Bioactivity-guided fractionations of chloromethylenic extract of the roots of U. afzelii (Annonaceae), using Leishmania donovani and Trypanosoma brucei brucei bioassay, resulted in the isolation of the two known compounds, emorydone (1) and demethoxymatteucinol (2), previously isolated from the stems, which were characterised from this source. In addition,(More)
A new chloro-depsidone (1) and five known compounds, variolaric acid (2), lecanoric acid (3), alpha-alectoronic acid (4), atranorin (5), and ergosterol peroxide (6), have been isolated from the lichen Ochrolechia parella. The structure of compound 1 was elucidated by spectroscopic analysis. Additionally, the tautomeric equilibrium of compound 4 was(More)
A new diphenyl ether (1), along with 12 known compounds, was isolated from the lichen Diploicia canescens. The structure of compound 1 was elucidated by spectroscopic data analysis, and the biosynthetic origin of this product is discussed. Secalonic acids B (7), D (8), and F (9) were isolated for the first time from D. canescens. The cytotoxic activities of(More)
Covering: up to 2016.When looking for dibenzofuran in the biochemical databases, most papers and reviews deal with pollutants and polychlorinated dibenzofurans like dioxins. But dibenzofurans are also biosynthetized by a wide diversity of organisms in nature. Even if dibenzofurans from natural sources represent a small class of secondary metabolites,(More)
Candida albicans is a commensal coloniser of the human gastrointestinal tract and an opportunistic pathogen, especially thanks to its capacity to form biofilms. This lifestyle is frequently involved in infections and increases the yeast resistance to antimicrobials and immune defenses. In this context, 38 lichen acetone extracts have been prepared and(More)
