Irenolone and emenolone: two new types of phytoalexin from Musa paradisiaca
Phenalenone-type phytoalexins were obtained for the first time from bananas and identified by COSY 1 H- 1 H, HMQC and HMBC techniques, and X-ray analysis, among other methods. The aminoglycoside
Synthesis and Antifungal Activity of Musa Phytoalexins and Structural Analogs
Several perinaphthenone/phenylphenalenone compounds were synthesized to publish a relationship between structure and antifungal activity against Mycosphaerella fijiensis and determine the relationship between phytoalexin structure and their antif fungus effects.
Danielone, a phytoalexin from papaya fruit.
Phenalenone-type compounds from Musa acuminata var. "Yangambi km 5" (AAA) and their activity against Mycosphaerella fijiensis.
Two perinaphthenone-type compounds were isolated from the rhizomes of Musa acuminata var.
Effect of Salicylic Acid and Structurally Related Compounds in the Accumulation of Phytoalexins in Cotyledons of Common Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) Cultivars
The observations indicate that there was a relatively good correlation between the phytoalexin contents and the inhibitory effect against C. lindemuthianum, and compounds structurally related to SA (dihydro-quinazolinones and some imines) showed a strong elicitor effect.
Phytoalexin Accumulation in Colombian Bean Varieties and Aminosugars as Elicitors
The accumulation of isoflavonoid phytoalexins was studied in several Colombian bean cultivars resistant and susceptible to Colletotrichum lindemuthianum fungus, the causal agent of anthrachnose
In vitro and in silico anti-dengue activity of compounds obtained from Psidium guajava through bioprospecting
In vitro evaluation of these compounds showed that three of them (gallic acid, quercetin, and catechin) were promising antivirals as they inhibit the production of infectious viral particles via different experimental strategies, with the best antiviral being cateschin.
