Molluscicidal and schistosomicidal activities of a steroidal saponin containing fraction from Dracaena fragrans (L.).
TLDR
The steroidal saponin-containing fraction from methanolic extract of Dracaena fragrans was tested for molluscicidal and ovicidal activities against Biomphalaria alexandrina and Bulinus truncatus and showed significant increase in total protein content & albumen, in aminotransferases and acetylcholinesterase activities.
Flavonoids from Albizia chinensis of Egypt
TLDR
The first three isolates were tested for their antimicrobial activity and the results revealed that the tested compounds exhibited moderate inhibiting activity against grampositive and gram-negative bacteria while no antifungal activity was observed.
Steroidal saponins from the roots of Dracaena marginata tam
A phytochemical investigation on the roots of Dracaena marginata yielded nine steroidal saponins. Six of the saponins were isolated as three pairs of 22-hydroxy furostanol saponins and their
Schistosomicidal and molluscicidal activities of two Junipers species cultivated in Egypt and the chemical composition of their essential oils
TLDR
In vitro bioassay screening of total methanolic extracts of two Juniperus species cultivated in Egypt showed that both tested extracts had almost similar schistosomicidal activity while J. communis extract possess more potent molluscicidal activity than J. horizontalis.
Saponins from Fagonia glutinosa.
TLDR
