Synthesis, spectral analysis and bioactivity of new coumarin derivatives are described in this paper. Eight new coumarin derivatives were synthesized in moderate to good yields by condensation of 4-chloro-3-nitrocoumarin and the corresponding heteroarylamine. The synthesized compounds were tested for their in vitro antimicrobial activity, in a standard disk(More)
The first GC and GC/MS analyses of the essential oils hydrodistilled from dry leaves of Arctostaphylos uva-ursi and Vaccinium vitis-idaea enabled the identification of 338 components in total (90.4 and 91.7% of the total GC peak areas, respectively). Terpenoids, fatty acids, fatty acid- and carotenoid derived compounds were predominant in the two samples.(More)
Recently, we identified a new natural antinociceptive alkaloid ternanthranin, isopropyl N-methylanthranilate (ISOAN), from the plant species Choisya ternata Kunth (Rutaceae). In this work we concentrated on the elucidation of its mechanism of action in comparison with two other esters of this acid (methyl (MAN) and propyl (PAN)). Mice orally pre-treated(More)
Choisya ternata Kunth (Rutaceae) is native to North America where it is popularly known as "Mexican orange". In this study, the anti-inflammatory effects of the essential oil (EO) obtained from the leaves of C. ternata, one of its minor components (ternanthranin-ISOAN) and its two synthetic analogues (methyl and propyl N-methylanthranilate--MAN and PAN)(More)
Volatile compounds of Geranium sanguineum and G. robertianum were isolated by hydrodistillation, analyzed in detail by GC and GC/MS and screened for their in vitro antibacterial and antifungal activity in a microdilution assay. In total, 304 constituents were identified, representing more than 90% of the isolated oils. The volatiles of G. sanguineum have(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the inhibitory/bactericidal activity and cell membrane effects of the hydrodistilled essential oil of Inula helenium L. roots against Staphylococcus aureus. Additionally, detailed chemical investigation was done in order to pinpoint the most active oil constituents and also the parts of these molecules(More)
Herein, a novel soil bacterium Streptomyces sp. NP10 able to grow outside usual streptomycetes optimum conditions (e.g., at 4 °C, pH 9 and high NaCl concentration), exhibiting atypical hemolytic, DNAse, and cellulolytic activities, is described. This strain produces and excretes into the growth medium large amounts of free long-chain fatty acids (FAs). A(More)
A library of 16 2-substituted methyl acetoacetates containing ferrocenyl or phenyl units was designed to disclose differences in the antimicrobial activity of ferrocene-containing compounds and their phenyl analogs. Two methyl acetoacetates, whose structures do not contain an aromatic nucleus, were also included in order to probe the inherent activity of(More)
The effects of intracerebroventricular application of SRIF-14 and SRIF-28 on pituitary gonadotrophic cells (FSH and LH) were examined using immunocytochemical and morphometrical methods in adult female Wistar rats. FSH- and LH-producing cells were studied using the peroxidase-antiperoxidase (PAP) immunohistochemical procedure. Morphometry and stereology(More)
