Several analogues of 7-O- and 4′-O-substituted isoxanthohumol and 8-prenylnaringenin, the strongest known phytoestrogen and potential anticancerogenic agent, were synthesized. Acyl, alkyl, and allyl derivatives of isoxanthohumol underwent the demethylation process using MgI2 × 2Et2O in anhydrous THF with the yields of 61–89%. Some of the compounds(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of structural analogues of xanthohumol 1, a flavonoid compound found in hops (Humulus lupulus). The agar-diffusion method using filter paper disks was applied. Biological tests performed for selected strains of Gram-positive (Staphylococcus aureus) and Gram-negative (Escherichia coli)(More)
Xanthohumol (14) and isoxanthohumol (6) derived from hop (Humulus lupulus L., Cannabaceae) and selected chalcone and chromene derivatives, obtained by chemical synthesis, were studied for antifeedant activity against the peach-potato aphid (Myzus persicae [Sulz.]). The study used also commercially available 4-chromanone (1), flavanone (4), naringenin (5),(More)
Oximes of isoxanthohumol (IXN), naringenin (N) and flavanone (FL) were synthesized with yields of 88-95% and their antioxidant activity was evaluated using the 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl radical (DPPH) method. Although naringenin oxime (NOX) and flavanone oxime (FLOX) did not have any significant antioxidant effect (EC50=2.21 mM and 78.7 mM,(More)
Microbial strains of the genera Dietzia, Micrococcus, Pseudomonas, Rhodococcus, Gordonia, Streptomyces, Pseudomonas, Bacillus, Penicillium, Rhodotorula and Lactobacillus were screened for the ability to convert chalcones. Synthesis of chalcones was performed by the Claisen-Schmidt reaction. There were three groups of chalcones obtained as the products,(More)
Isoxanthohumol (2) and its 4'-O-monoacylated (3) and 7,4'-O-diacetylated (4) derivatives were synthesized and evaluated in vitro for their cytotoxic activity against several cancer cell lines of various origins: MCF-7 (breast), A549 (lung), MESSA (uterine sarcoma), LoVo (colon), drug-resistant human cancer cells (MESSA/DX and LoVo/DX), glioblastoma (U-118(More)
The synthesis of hydroxyflavone derivatives is described. The acyl derivatives of 3-, 6-, 7-hydroxyflavones (compounds 2, 4, 6, respectively) and chrysin (5,7-dihydroxyflavone, 7) were obtained in high yields and evaluated in vitro for their cytotoxic activity against several cancer cell lines of different origin: MCF-7 (breast cancer), A549 (nonsmall cell(More)
Gliomas are one of the most aggressive and treatment-resistant types of human brain cancer. Identification and evaluation of anticancer properties of compounds found in plants, such as naringenin (N) and 8-prenylnaringenin (8PN), are among the most promising applications in glioma therapy. The prenyl group seems to be crucial to the anticancer activity of(More)
The aim of this research was to select microbial strains capable of transforming flavonoid compounds containing an amino group. 6-Aminoflavone (1) was used as a model compound. Biotransformation of 1 by the cultures of Rhodococcus sp. DSM 364 and Gordonia sp. DSM 44456 bacteria led to 6-acetamidoflavone (2) with the isolated yields in 86% and 93%,(More)
