Scopolamine and atropine contents in the whole plant of Datura metel L. increased gradually with the progress of developmental growth, and were most pronounced when the plant was at the end of its reproductive stage. The highest percentage of scopolamine accumulation in the root was after 16 weeks. The root was the organ which often accumulated higher(More)
Allyl and 3-butenyl isothiocyanate with two nitriles and an epithiobutane derivative were estimated. These glucosinolate degradation products were found in callus, seed, and dried plant but not in suspension cultures. Seventeen alkanes and five fatty acids were also identified and estimated in plant material and cultures. 4-Methylthiobutyl and 2-phenylethyl(More)
Fractions obtained from partitioning of aerial methanolic extract of Euphorbia Aelleniiwith chloroform (E2), ethyl acetate (E3), n-butanol (E4) and water (E5) were investigated in vitro for their phytotoxicity, insecticidal, anti-leishmanial, cytotoxicity, antibacterial and antifungal activities. Sample E2 appeared to have significant phytotoxic activity.(More)

The cytotoxic chloroform fraction of Euphorbia aellenii afforded two cycloartane type triterpenes-cycloart-25-en-3β,24-diol (1) and 24-methylene-cycloartan-3β-ol (2)-for the first time from this plant. Preparation of cycloartane derivatives, 3β, 24-O-diacetyl-cycloart-25-en as compound 3 and 3β-O-acetyl-24-methylene-cycloartan (4) were conducted by(More)
Two new 14-desoxo-10, 18-dihydromyrinsol diterpenoids (1 and 2) were isolated and characterized from the cytotoxic chloroform fraction of Euphorbia aellenii Rech. f. (Euphorbiaceae). The structures of the new compounds were elucidated by spectroscopic methods and their immunomodulatory properties were evaluated by T-cell proliferation and phagocyte(More)
Moringaceae, a monogeneric family in Capparales (glucosinolate-containing species), includes 14 species. One of them is Moringa peregrina (Forssk.) Fiori., a small tree, which grows in south east of Iran. Volatile constituents of seed coat and stem of M. peregrina were determined by GC and GC/MS. Moreover, extracts of seed and different cultured cells were(More)
