Parasitic diseases caused by protozoa as Leishmania, Trypanosome or Plasmodium are responsible for more than three millions deaths annually throughout the developing countries. This review covers recent studies on plant-secondary metabolites isolated from medicinal plants and that have demonstrated moderate to high activity in in vitro and in vivo bioassays(More)
Urechites andrieuxii Muell.-Arg. (Apocynaceae) is widely used in the Yucatan Peninsula for the treatment of cutaneous leishmaniasis. The influence of the environment in the variability of the leishmanicidal activity of the plant was evaluated using crude methanol extracts of roots from individuals belonging to four natural populations growing in the Yucatan(More)
One new diterpene, 2 alpha-hydroxy-12beta-hydroxy-isopimara-8(14), 15-diene, and six known compounds as triterpenes, sterols and fatty acid, were isolated from the stem bark of Tanaecium jaroba (Bignoniaceae), a Bolivian plant used in traditional medicine. Their structures were established mainly by 1D and 2D NMR (COSY, HMQC, HMBC, ROESY) and their(More)

'Crimson Seedless' is one of the most important table grape varieties in Chile, but under certain environmental conditions, the fruit exhibits inadequate red color development, causing economic losses due to lower product quality. The use of plant growth regulators, such as abscisic acid (ABA) and ethylene, during development increases the anthocyanin(More)
The synthesis of several series of imidazo[2,1-a]isoindol-5-ol derivatives and the results of their evaluation against Plasmodium falciparum are presented and discussed. The effects of electron-withdrawing or-donating substituents on different parts of the molecule, as well as those produced by the incorporation of an additional fused ring, were analyzed.(More)
