Four naturally occurring quinones, mansonone-D (MD), mansonone-H (MH), thespone (TP) and thespesone (TPE), extracted from the heartwood of Thespesia populnea have been tested for their cytotoxic action by aerobic incubation with human breast adenocarcinoma (MCF-7) cells. Toxicity of the quinones follows the order MD > TP > MH approximately TPE. EPR(More)
The interaction of antiperoxidative flavonoids artocarpin (AR), cycloartocarpin (CAR), dalspinin (DP), dalspinosin (DPO), and dalspinin-7-O-galactoside (DPG) with 2,2'-azino-bis(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) radical cation (ABTS(.+)) and O2(-.) was studied in phosphate buffer (pH 7.4). The ability of these compounds to inhibit lipid peroxidation(More)
This paper describes the synthesis and photodynamic properties of six different chalcone derivatives. Using N,N-dimethyl-4-nitrosoaniline (RNO) bleaching assay, the singlet oxygen generating efficiencies of these chalcones are determined relative to rose bengal (RB). Superoxide dismutase (SOD) inhibitable cytochrome c reduction assay and electron magnetic(More)
Two naturally occurring anthraquinones, barleriaquinone-I (BQ-I) and barleriaquinone-II (BQ-II), extracted from Barleria buxifolia, are tested for their cytotoxic action by aerobic incubation with human breast adenocarcinoma cells (MCF7). Cytotoxicities, measured as LD(50) (50% inhibition of colony formation) values, show BQ-II to be more active than BQ-I.(More)
Four different synthetic compounds [3-aryl-2-(3-pyridyl)chromanones] were prepared and screened for cytotoxicity against a panel of 29 human cancer cell lines in five different concentrations separately. All compounds displayed cytotoxicity against cancer cell lines and one of them possessed cell type selectivity also.
From the stem of Derris ovalifolia, a new chromanone alkaloid characterised as 7-methoxy-3-[1-(3-pyridyl)methylidene]-4-chromanone (1) was isolated along with four known compounds, dehydrotoxicarol (2), dehydrodeguelin (3), toxicarol isoflavone (4) and indole-3-carbaldehyde (5). Their structures were determined on the basis of spectral data interpretation.(More)
The aim of this work was to investigate the photodynamic action of electron-rich anthraquinones, viz., cynodontin (CYN) and cynodontin-5,8-dimethylether (CYNM). Both optical and EPR methods are used to detect the generation of singlet oxygen. Based on RNO bleaching, relative to rose bengal (RB), singlet oxygen generating efficiencies of CYN and CYNM are(More)
