Trigonella foenum-graecum, commonly known as fenugreek, is an annual herbaceous plant. From the seeds of T. foenum-graecum an unusual amino acid, 4-hydroxyisoleucine 5, has been isolated, which significantly decreased the plasma triglyceride levels by 33% (P<0.002), total cholesterol (TC) by 22% (P<0.02), and free fatty acids by 14%, accompanied by an(More)
The present report confirms the anti-hyperglycaemic and anti-dyslipidemic properties of 4-hydroxyisoleucine, an unusual amino acid isolated from Trigonella foenum-graecum seeds, for the first time in a well-characterised model of type II diabetes, i.e. db/db mice. 4-Hydroxyisoleucine, when given orally to these mice at 50 mg kg(-1) dose level, significantly(More)
Hypoglycemic effect of ethanol extracts of Peganum harmala (commonly known as 'Harmal') seeds has been reported on normal and streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. In the present study, the authors determine anti-diabetic and anti-oxidative properties of 4-hydroxypipecolic acid (4-HPA) isolated from seeds of P. harmala in C57BL/KsJ-db/db mice. Twelve week(More)
PURPOSE To determine the effect of 4-Hydroxyisoleucine (4-HIL), an unusual amino acid isolated from the seeds of Trigonella foenum-graecum, on glucose uptake and the translocation of glucose transporter 4 (GLUT4) to plasma membrane in skeletal muscle cells and to investigate the underlying mechanisms of action. METHODS Rat skeletal muscle cells(More)
A prenylated chalcone 2 named crotaorixin, has been isolated from the aerial parts of the Crotalaria orixensis. Its structure has been established by extensive 1D and 2D NMR measurements. In vitro antimalarial activity of crotaorixin as well as few prenylated chalcones isolated from C. medicagenia and C. ramosissima were evaluated at three concentrations(More)
In continuation of our drug discovery program on Indian medicinal plants, we isolated bioactive compounds (1-5) from the leaves of Calophyllum inophyllum and evaluated their antidyslipidemic activity in triton induced hyperlipidemia model. The calophyllic acid (1A) and isocalophyllic acid (1B) mixture, canophyllic acid (4) and amentoflavone (5) showed dose(More)
Azadirachta indica is well known medicinal plant mentioned in ancient herbal texts. It has been extensively used in Ayurvedic, Unani and Homoeopathic medicine and has become a luminary of modern medicine. As part of our drug discovery program we isolated azadiradione from the ethanolic extract of seeds of A. indica and evaluated for in-vivo antiulcer(More)
Gastroprotective mechanism of peganine hydrochloride isolated from Peganum harmala seeds was investigated. Peganine hydrochloride was evaluated against cold restraint (CRU), aspirin (AS), alcohol (AL) and pyloric ligation (PL) induced gastric ulcer models in rats. Potential anti-ulcer activity of peganine was observed against CRU (50.0%), AS (58.5%), AL(More)
Six new anthraquinone-γ-pyrones, saliniquinones A-F (1-6), which are related to metabolites of the pluramycin/altromycin class, were isolated from a fermentation broth of the marine actinomycete Salinispora arenicola (strain CNS-325). Their structures were determined by analysis of one- and two-dimensional NMR spectroscopic and high-resolution mass(More)
The triterpenoid, lupeol (1) has been isolated from the leaves extract of Aegle marmelos. Few novel derivatives (2-13) were synthesized from the naturally occurring lupeol (1) and screened for their antihyperglycemic activity (2-11) and antidyslipidemic activity (2-4 and 12-13). The derivative 4 lowered the blood glucose levels by 18.2% and 25.0% at 5h and(More)
