Cosmetic applications of selected traditional Chinese herbal medicines.
TLDR
Among active anti-tyrosinase extracts, Sophora japonica and Spatholobus suberectus were especially potent in HEMn cells in terms of free radical scavenging effects and high phenolic contents, making them the strongest candidates for cosmetic application found in the current study. Expand
Inhibition of monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B) by Chinese herbal medicines.
TLDR
The 50% aqueous methanol extracts of four active extracts, Arisaema amurense, Lilium brownii var. Expand
Monoamine oxidase B and free radical scavenging activities of natural flavonoids in Melastoma candidum D. Don.
TLDR
The results suggest that the four flavonoids from M. candidum possess both MAO-B inhibitory and free radical scavenging activities, which may be used for preventing some neurodegenerative diseases in the future. Expand
Monoamine oxidase B (MAO-B) inhibition by active principles from Uncaria rhynchophylla.
TLDR
The isolated two known compounds, (+)-catechin and (-)-epicatechin, isolated here for the first time from Uncaria rhynchophylla, might be able to protect against neurodegeneration in vitro, and the molecular mechanism deserves further study. Expand
The phenolic constituents and free radical scavenging activities of Gynura formosana Kiamnra
Gynura formosana Kiamnra (Compositae) is a herbal folk medicine that is a popular vegetable in Taiwan. The free-radical scavenging activities of a 70% aqueous acetone extract from the herb GExpand
Neurocytoprotective Effects of Aliphatic Hydroxamates from Lovastatin, a Secondary Metabolite from Monascus-Fermented Red Mold Rice, in 6-Hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-Treated Nerve Growth Factor
TLDR
Compound 3f may be used as a neurocytoprotective agent against 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-induced toxicity in human neuroblastoma PC12 cells and JC-1 staining indicated that compound 3f also stabilized mitochondrial membrane potential. Expand
Free radical-scavenging activity of Taiwanese native plants.
TLDR
Results indicate the 70% aqueous acetone extracts of A. buerferianum var. Expand
Neurocytoprotective effects of the bioactive constituents of Pueraria thomsonii in 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-treated nerve growth factor (NGF)-differentiated PC12 cells.
TLDR
Daidzein and genistein may be useful in the development of future strategies for the treatment of PD and exhibited neurocytoprotective effects against 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-induced cytotoxicity in nerve growth factor (NGF)-differentiated PC12 cells. Expand
The effects of antibiotics combined with natural polyphenols against clinical methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
TLDR
The study results and ready availability and low toxicity of plant polyphenols warrant further investigations on the therapeutic potential of combination therapies for MRSA infections. Expand
Antimicrobial activity of antibiotics in combination with natural flavonoids against clinical extended‐spectrum β‐lactamase (ESBL)‐producing Klebsiella pneumoniae
TLDR
Because of the low‐toxic nature of flavonoids, the combination of antibiotics and flavonoid is a potential new strategy for developing therapies for infections caused by ESBL‐producing bacteria in the future. Expand
