The genus Salvia contains a large number of biologically active diterpenoids with various skeletons including abietanes, labdanes, clerodanes, pimaranes and icetexanes. Diterpenes of Salvia species showed various biological activities, particularly cytotoxic and anti-proliferative properties. In recent years many studies have been focused on the molecular(More)
OBJECTIVE The current study summarizes the updated information concerning the ethnopharmacology, Phytochemistry, and pharmacology of Otostegia persica Boiss. (Lamiaceae), an endemic medicinal plant in south and southeast of Iran. MATERIALS AND METHODS Information was collected through bibliographic investigation from scientific journals, books, theses,(More)
Traditional medicine is a useful guide in medical sciences. In the Islamic Iranian traditional medicine, the medicinal properties of many plants have been mentioned that could be exploited in drug discovery. We aimed to explore the nature and properties of Aloe spp. As described in some major Islamic traditional texts including Ferdows al-Hekmah fi'l-Tibbe(More)
OBJECTIVES Nepeta binaludensis Jamzad (Lamiaceae) has been used in folk medicine of Iran to cure various diseases. The plant is an endemic species to the country that has recently been identified in Razavi Khorasan province. To evaluate the antioxidant and anti-melanogenesis of N. binaludensis, in this study the inhibitory activity of different extracts of(More)
OBJECTIVE Boerhaavia elegans L. (Nyctaginaceae) is a medicinal plant used for the treatment of kidney disorders, urinary tract disorders and blood purification in Baluch tribe. The aim of present study is to evaluate the antioxidant property of B. elegans species for the first time. MATERIALS AND METHODS Different parts (leaf, stem and fruit) of the plant(More)
Ferula communis L., subsp. communis, namely giant fennel, has extensively been used in traditional medicine for a wide range of ailments. Fresh plant materials, crude extracts and isolated components of F. communis showed a wide spectrum of in vitro and in vivo pharmacological properties including antidiabetic, antimicrobial, antiproliferative, and(More)
Although Iran has a deep history in herbal medicine and great heritage of ancient medical scholars, few efforts have been made to evaluate ethnopharmacological aspects of medicinal plants in this country. In the present study, the authors have reviewed all important literature about the ethnopharmacological investigations on medicinal plants used in the(More)
A new series of quinoline analogues was designed and synthesized as Hsp90 inhibitors. The cytotoxic activity of the synthesized compounds was evaluated against three human cancer cell lines including MCF-7 (human breast cancer cells), DU145 (human prostate cancer cell lines), and A549 (adenocarcinomic human alveolar basal epithelial cells). Some of our(More)
Metabolic syndrome is associated with several disorders, including hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia as well as cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Plant-derived polyphenols, compounds found in numerous plant species, play an important role as potential treatments for components of metabolic syndrome. Studies have provided evidence for protective(More)
The genus Salvia, from the Lamiaceae family, has diverse biological properties that are primarily attributable to their diterpene contents. There is no comprehensive review on the molecular signaling pathways of these active components. In this review, we investigated the molecular targets of bioactive Salvia diterpenes responsible for the treatment of(More)
