Reactive oxygen species (ROS) have pathogenic effects on ischemic-reperfusion injury of heart. Hence, it is important to identify natural antioxidative agents to mitigate such effects. Recently, it has been reported that Clerodendron colebrookianum (CC) leaf extract has antioxidant and hypolipidemic effects in experimental animals. The aim of this study was(More)
Clerodendron colebrookianum Walp (family, Verbenaceae) has been used as a home remedy by the Mizo people of north eastern (NE) region of India in their folklore medicine as a cardioprotective (mainly against high blood pressure) agent. The scientific basis for their use has yet to be established. Therefore, in this investigation an attempt has been made to(More)
This study evaluated the hypolipidemic effect of crude polyphenol fraction from Clerodenrdon colebrookianum (CPCC) leaves in cholesterol fed rats. Crude polyphenol fraction was obtained from the ethyl acetate extract of Clerodenrdon colebrookianum (CC). Investigation was conducted by administering graded oral doses (0.25 g, 0.5 g and 1 g/kg b. w. /day) of(More)
Folklore studies have revealed that Musa balbisiana Colla (MB; Family: Musaceae) has high medicinal properties. The purpose of the present study is to evaluate antihyperglycemic, and antioxidant activity of MB extracts in streptozotocin (STZ) induced diabetic rats. In vitro antioxidant and antidiabetic activity of MB extracts, i.e., root extract (RE), shoot(More)
The study aimed to identify the phenolic compounds present in Centella asiatica (L.) (C. asiatica) extract and evaluate the respective antioxidant potential as well as its cholesterol-lowering effects in the experimental animal model. Herein, the antioxidant potential of extracts was assessed by its free radical scavenging activity such as 2, 2-diphenyl -1-(More)
The tribal communities of North Eastern India rely on herbal medicine to cure various disease conditions. Ziziphus jujuba Mill. (Rhamnaceae) is one of such medicinal plants used for curing liver ailments, insomnia, anemia, diarrhea, diabetic complications, cancer, and loss of appetite. The present study was aimed to describe the protective ability of Z.(More)
The present study explains the neuroprotective ability of bioactive fractions of Annona reticulata bark (ARB) and Ziziphus jujuba root bark (ZJ) along with insulin against diabetic neuropathy. By using different solvents of increasing polarity ARB and ZJ were undergone for bioactive guided fractionation. The neuroprotective ability of the all the plant(More)
Androgen receptor (AR) is an attractive target for the treatment of prostate cancer. Structural modification and molecular docking-based virtual screening approaches were imposed to identify the novel 1,3-thiazolidine-2,4-diones (TZDs) by using Schrödinger (Maestro 9.5). The best fit molecules (3-12 & 23-31) were synthesized and characterized using(More)
The aim of the study was to identify the phenolic compounds present in Hydrocotyle sibthorpioides (HS), Centella asiatica (CA) and Amaranthus viridis (AV) extracts and investigate their respective antioxidant activities. Herein, an ultra-high pressure liquid chromatography-mass spectrometer (UPLC-MS/MS) analytical method has been developed for the(More)
Antiandrogens are a novel class of anticancer agents that inhibit cancer cell proliferation and induce apoptosis in various cell lines. To find the lead compound from the oxobenzimidazole derivatives, receptor-ligand docking studies were initially performed using Schrödinger software. The best fit molecules were synthesized and characterized through IR,(More)
