The aim of this study was to evaluate the antimicrobial activity of the methanol extracts from Ficus chlamydocarpa (FCR), Ficus cordata (FCB), mixture of the two plants (FCM), as well as that of the isolated flavonoids Alpinumisoflavone (2), Genistein (3), Laburnetin (4), Luteolin (5) (isolated from FCR), Catechin (7) and Epiafzelechin (8) (isolated from(More)
The present study assessed the antimicrobial activities of various natural products belonging to the terpenoids, alkaloids and phenolics against a collection of Gram-negative multidrug-resistant (MDR) bacteria. The results demonstrated that most of the compounds were extruded by bacterial efflux pumps. In the presence of the efflux pump inhibitor(More)
In Cameroon, infectious diseases are amongst the most commonly notified diseases and largest cause of mortality. Many plants are used locally in traditional medicine for their treatment. The aim of the present review is to summarize currently available evidence and knowledge concerning Cameroonian plants used to treat bacterial and fungal infections, and(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY This study was designed to investigate the antimicrobial activities of the methanol extracts from the stem bark of Ficus ovata (FOB), fractions (FOB1-6) and compounds isolated following bio-guided fractionation [3-friedelanone (1), taraxeryl acetate (2), betulinic acid (3), oleanoïc acid (4), 2-hydroxyisoprunetin (5), 6,7-(2-isopropenyl(More)
The present study analyzed the possible memory-enhancing and antioxidant proprieties of the methanolic extract of Piper nigrum L. fruits (50 and 100 mg/kg, orally, for 21 days) in amyloid beta(1–42) rat model of Alzheimer’s disease. The memory-enhancing effects of the plant extract were studied by means of in vivo (Y-maze and radial arm-maze tasks)(More)
The methanolic extract (NLB) and ten compounds isolated from the root bark of Newbouldia laevis Seem, namely chrysoeriol (1), newbouldiaquinone (2), 2-acetylfuro-1,4-naphthoquinone (3), 2-hydroxy-3-methoxy-9,10-dioxo-9,10-dihydroanthracene-1-carbaldehyde (4), lapachol (5), beta-sitosterol-3-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside (6), oleanolic acid (7), canthic acid (8)(More)
Several flavonoid-like compounds were found to possess good antiproliferative properties. Herein, we examined the ability of four naturally occuring and biologically active flavonoids from the genus Dorstenia, gancaonin Q (1), 6-prenylapigenin (2), 6,8-diprenyleriodictyol (3), and 4-hydroxylonchocarpin ( 4), to inhibit the proliferation of a panel of(More)
BACKGROUND Nearly 3,000 plant species are used as medicines in South Africa, with approximately 350 species forming the most commonly traded and used medicinal plants. In the present study, twelve South African medicinal plants were selected and tested for their antimicrobial activities against eight microbial species belonging to fungi, Mycobacteria,(More)
BACKGROUND Natural products are well recognized as sources of drugs in several human ailments. In the present work, we carried out a preliminary screening of six natural compounds, xanthone V(1) (1); 2-acetylfuro-1,4-naphthoquinone (2); physcion (3); bisvismiaquinone (4); vismiaquinone (5); 1,8-dihydroxy-3-geranyloxy-6-methylanthraquinone (6) against(More)
BACKGROUND Resistance of cancer to chemotherapy remains a challenging issue for scientists as well as physicians. Naturally occurring xanthones possess a variety of biological activities such as anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-cancer effects. The present study was aimed at investigating the cytotoxicity and the modes of action of three naturally(More)
