A novel series of nitrogen-containing chalcones were synthesized by Mannich reaction and were screened for anti-inflammatory related activities such as inhibition of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), trypsin and beta-glucuronidase. The antioxidant potential was demonstrated using 1,1-diphenyl-2-picryl hydrazine (DPPH) radical scavenging activity. The results of the(More)
Angiogenesis: a process of generation of new blood vessels has been proved to be necessary for sustained tumor growth and cancer progression. Inhibiting angiogenesis pathway has long been remained a significant hope for the development of novel, effective and target orientated antitumor agents arresting the tumor proliferation and metastasis. The process of(More)
Developing antiangiogenic agents using natural products has remained a significant hope in the mainstream of anticancer research. In the present investigation series of flavonoids possessing di-, tri-, tetra-, and penta-hydroxy substitutions were evaluated as antiangiogenic agents using in vivo choriallantoic membrane model. The MTT-based cytotoxicity(More)
Dwarf plant height and tillering ability are two of the most important agronomic traits that determine the plant architecture, and have profound influence on grain yield in rice. To understand the molecular mechanism controlling these two traits, an EMS-induced recessive dwarf and increased tillering1 (dit1) mutant was characterized. The mutant showed(More)
Coumarin Schiff-bases (CSB) possessing different substituents on the 4-methyl-2-substituted phenyl imino-2H-chromene-7-ol molecule were evaluated for their in-vitro antioxidant and plausible anti-inflammatory potential. The antioxidant studies of selected CSB were carried out by determining their reducing power, OH* radical scavenging activity, scavenging(More)
Relationship between structural diversity and biological activities of flavonoids has remained an important discourse in the mainstream of flavonoid research. In the current study anti-angiogenic, cytotoxic, antioxidant and cyclooxygenase (COX) inhibitory activities of diverse class of flavonoids including hydroxyl and methoxy substituted flavones,(More)
Formation of new blood vessels (angiogenesis) has been demonstrated to be a basic prerequisite for sustainable growth and proliferation of tumor. Several growth factors, cytokines, small peptides and enzymes support tumor growth either independently or in synergy. Decoding the crucial mechanisms of angiogenesis in physiological and pathological state has(More)
Phytotherapy has played an important role in the management of diabetes and related complications. In the present study different fractions of Catharanthus roseus L. (Apocynaceae), Ocimum sanctum L. (Labiatae), Tinospora cordifolia Willd. (Menispermaceae), Aegle marmelos L. (Rutaceae), Ficus golmerata L. (Moraceae), Psoralea corlifolia L. (Fabaceae),(More)
Synthetic derivatives of 1-(2-hydroxy-3-(2-hydroxy-cyclohexyl)-4,6-dimethoxy-phenyl)-methanone were evaluated in-vitro for their activities related to antioxidant and anti-inflammatory. The antioxidant potential was determined by calculating reducing potential, OH and DPPH (2,2-diphenyl-1-picryl hydrazine) radical scavenging activities. The in-vitro(More)
Synthetic chalcones (SCs) having different side chains on the 1-(2-Hydroxy-3-(2-hydroxy-cyclohexyl)-4,6 dimethoxy-phenyl(-methanone structure were examined in-vitro for their antioxidant abilities by DPPH (2,2-diphenyl-1-picryl hydrazine) radical scavenging activity, reducing ability, OH radical scavenging activity, inhibition of polyphenol oxidase (PPO)(More)
