Medical plants and their various extracts have been occasionally used in the treatment of many diseases. Astragalus is one of those medical plants and it has several biological activities. In the present study, the hexane extracts of six Astragalus species, which are grown in the eastern Anatolia region of Turkey, were isolated, and their mutagenic and(More)
Lichens and their various extracts have been occasionally used in the treatment of many diseases. Cladonia rangiformis and Umbilicaria vellea are two important species of these lichens and they have several biological activities. In the present study, methanol extracts of these lichens, which are grown in the Eastern Anatolia Region of Turkey, were(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the antigenotoxic potential of two newly synthesized β-aminoketones against N-methyl-N'-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine (MNNG) and 9-aminoacridine (9-AA)-induced mutagenesis. The mutant bacterial tester strains were MNNG-sensitive Escherichia coli WP2 uvrA and 9-AA-sensitive Salmonella typhimurium TA1537. Both test compounds(More)
The current study aims to determine the antimutagenic potential of five newly synthesized cyclic compounds against the genotoxic agents sodium azide (NaN₃) and N-methyl-N'-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine (MNNG). The mutant bacterial tester strains were NaN₃-sensitive Salmonella typhimurium TA1535 and MNNG-sensitive Escherichia coli WP2uvrA. According to the(More)
UNLABELLED Flavonoids, abundant in most of plant species, are widely used in medicine and development studies on phytotherapeutic drugs due to their various biological activities. In the present study, 3 flavonoids, apigenin-7-O-glucoside, apigenin-7-O-rutinoside, and apigenin-7-O-glucuronide, were isolated from Mentha longifolia (L.) Hudson subsp.(More)
The essential oils having many application fields such as medicine, flavoring, cosmetics are natural products obtained from aromatic plants. As the natural products of Ferula species have a wide range of use in folk medicine, this study was planned to evaluate the mutagenic and antimutagenic activities of essential oils of leaves and flowers of Ferula(More)
All the methanol extracts did not show mutagenic activity in Ames/Salmonella and Z. mays MI test systems. Furthermore, some extracts showed significant antimutagenic activity against 9-AA in Ames test system. Inhibition rates for 9-AA mutagenicity ranged from 25.51% (P. furfuracea—0.05 μg/plate) to 66.14% (C. islandica—0.05 μg/plate). In addition, all of(More)
The goal of the present research was to determine the protective potential of five newly synthesized indenopyridine derivatives against N-methyl-N'-nitro-N-nitrosoguanidine (MNNG) and 9-aminoacridine (9-AA) induced mutagenesis. MNNG sensitive Escherichia coli WP2uvrA and 9-AA sensitive Salmonella typhimurium TA1537 were chosen as the bacterial tester(More)
The current study aims to determine the genotoxic and antigenotoxic potential of four newly synthesized dihydropyridine derivatives using Escherichia coli WP2 and Ames/Salmonella bacterial reversion assay systems. The bacterial mutant tester strains, E. coli WP2uvrA with a point mutation and Salmonella typhimurium TA1537 with a frameshift mutation, were(More)
Direct-type catalytic Mannich reaction for the synthesis of β-aminoketones from cyclohexanone, substituted aromatic amines and aromatic or hetero-aromatic aldehydes has been applied in water with bismuth triflate under ultrasound. Good yields of the expected β-aminoketones were obtained from available substrates, at room temperature in 1-2 hours. This study(More)
