Rat lens aldose reductase inhibitory constituents of Nelumbo nucifera stamens
TLDR
The methanol extract of the stamens of Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn was shown to exert an inhibitory effect on rat lens aldose reductase (RLAR), and thus was fractionated using several organic solvents, including dichloromethane, ethyl acetate and n‐butanol.
Antiinflammatory activities of Rubus coreanus depend on the degree of fruit ripening
TLDR
The results of the study show that the degree of fruit ripening of Rubus coreanus affects the production of inflammatory mediators such as NO, PGE2 and inflammatory cytokines.
A new isoflavone glycoside from the stem bark of Sophora japonica
TLDR
The inhibitory effects of all the isolated compounds on aldose reductase were evaluated in vitro and daidzein, puerol A, and paratensein-7-O-glucoside exhibited potent inhibitories effects, with IC50 values of 3.2, 6.4, and 1.9 μM.
The Inhibitory Effect of Roasted Licorice Extract on Human Metastatic Breast Cancer Cell‐Induced Bone Destruction
TLDR
RLE may be a beneficial agent for preventing and treating bone destruction in patients with breast cancer, and dramatically inhibited RANKL‐induced osteoclastogenesis in BMMs, thereby reducing osteOClast‐mediated pit formation.
Composition of volatile compounds and in vitro antimicrobial activity of nine Mentha spp.
TLDR
It is concluded that monoterpenoids are mainly rich in Mentha plants and most of extracts obtained from Mentha showed strong antimicrobial activity against bacteria, and chocomint indicates the highest inhibition activity.
Anti-inflammatory/Anti-oxidative Stress Activities and Differential Regulation of Nrf2-Mediated Genes by Non-Polar Fractions of Tea Chrysanthemum zawadskii and Licorice Glycyrrhiza uralensis
TLDR
CZ and LE possess strong inhibitory effects against NF-κB-mediated inflammatory as well as strong activation of the Nrf2-ARE-anti-oxidative stress signaling pathways, which would contribute to their overall health promoting pharmacological effects against diseases including cancer.
Licochalcone A inhibits the growth of colon carcinoma and attenuates cisplatin-induced toxicity without a loss of chemotherapeutic efficacy in mice.
TLDR
The administration of LCA alone significantly inhibited the size of the solid tumours in CT-26 cell-inoculated Balb/c mice, without any detectable induction of nephrotoxicity, hepatotoxicity and oxidative stress.
Anti‐tumour and immuno‐stimulating activities of the fruiting bodies of Paecilomyces japonica, a new type of Cordyceps spp.
TLDR
The results suggest that the anti‐tumor activity of both fungi might be related to an immuno‐stimulating function.
Aldose reductase inhibitory compounds from Glycyrrhiza uralensis.
TLDR
The results clearly indicated that the presence of a gamma,gamma-dimethylchromene ring is partly responsible for the AR inhibitory activity of isoprenoid-type flavonoids.
