In butterflies female mate choice is influenced by both visual and olfactory cues, the latter of which are important at close range. Males of the green-veined butterfly, Pieris napi, are known to release citral (mixture of geranial and neral, 1:1), but its role(s) and conditions of release are not known. Here, we show that male P. napi release citral when(More)
A new cyclohexadepsipeptide, named hirsutellide A (1), was isolated from a cell extract of the entomopathogenic fungus Hirsutella kobayasii BCC 1660. The structure of 1 was elucidated by analyses of spectroscopic data, and its absolute stereochemistry was addressed by the use of Marfey's method. Hirsutellide A (1) exhibited antimycobacterial and(More)
Chemical investigation of biologically active compounds of Getonia floribunda led to the isolation of two new macrocyclic lactones, combretastatins D-3 (1) and D-4 (2). The structures of these compounds were confirmed by spectroscopic analyses. Combretastatin D-3 (1) exhibited cytotoxicity towards the small-cell lung cancer cell line (NCI-H187, IC50=13.0(More)
A study of enterobiasis and its correlation with various factors that could potentially influence the rate of infection was conducted among 3,621 primary school children (five to ten years old), drawn from sixteen schools in Bang Khun Thian District, Bangkok. Diagnosis was by the transparent tape swab technique, which was used to recover Enterobius(More)
Chemical exploration of Camchaya calcarea (family Compositae) has led to the isolation of nine known sesquiterpene lactones 1 - 9, together with caffeic acid methyl ester 10. Sesquiterpenes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, and 8 exhibited moderate antiplasmodial activity, but showed potent antimycobacterial activity. Interestingly, the cytotoxicity of sesquiterpene(More)
