Propolis samples from Kangaroo Island, South Australia, were investigated for chemical constituents using high-field nuclear magnetic resonance spectral profiling. A type of propolis was found containing a high proportion of prenylated hydroxystilbenes. Subsequently, the botanical origin of this type of propolis was identified using a beehive propolis depletion method and analysis of flora. Ligurian honey bees, Apis mellifera ligustica Spinola, were found to produce propolis from resin exuded… Expand
Kangaroo Island propolis types originating from two Lepidosperma species and Dodonaea humilis.
The endemic Australian plants Lepidosperma sp. Flinders Chase (Cyperaceae), Lepidosperma viscidum (Cyperaceae) and Dodonaea humilis (Sapindaceae) were found to be the botanical origin of threeExpand
Structure Elucidation and Botanical Characterization of Diterpenes from a Specific Type of Bee Glue
TLDR
Exploration into the botanical origin revealed Myoporum insulare R. Br, as the plant source of the bee glue materials, made through comparative analysis of the myoporum bee glue samples collected from the beehives, analyses of plant resinous exudate, and resin carried on the hind legs of bees foraging for bee glue.

Broad-spectrum pharmacological activity of Australian propolis and metabolomic-driven identification of marker metabolites of propolis samples from three continents.
TLDR
The AP-1 extract displayed significantly greater anti-proliferative activity against the MCF7 and the MDA-MB-231 metastatic breast adenocarcinoma cell lines compared to BP-1 and CP-1 (p < 0.05); similar trends were also observed in the antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant assays. Expand
Antiplasmodial flavanones and a stilbene from Carpha glomerata.
TLDR
Bioassay-guided fractionation of an extract of Carpha glomerata (Cyperaceae) led to the isolation of seven compounds, and compound 2 (8-(3″-hydroxyisoamyl)-naringenin) was isolated for the first time as a natural product. Expand
Advances in the Propolis Chemical Composition between 2013 and 2018: A Review
Propolis or sometimes called “bee glue” is a lipophilic, adhesive, gummy, and resinous substance collected by different species of bees, including honeybees (e.g. Apis mellifera L.) and stinglessExpand
A New Record for Propolis Substitute: Pruning Sealer
TLDR
Four of them (decanol, homofuraneol, tetradecane, 2-phenylethanol) were derived from the pruning sealer that was applied to the trees located around the beehive. Expand
Accessible Methodologies for Quantification of Flavonoids and Total Phenols in Propolis
Resumo Abstract: Propolis is widely known for its important therapeutic activities. In its chemical constitution, there are several classes of secondary metabolites, such as simple phenols,Expand
Lessons from Exploring Chemical Space and Chemical Diversity of Propolis Components
TLDR
A unique compound database consisting of 578 components isolated from both honey bee propolis and stingless bee Propolis was assembled, and the chemical space and chemical diversity of these compounds were analyzed. Expand
The Strong Anti-Kinetoplastid Properties of Bee Propolis: Composition and Identification of the Active Agents and Their Biochemical Targets
TLDR
Propolis has reported anti-kinetoplastid activity in vitro and in vivo regardless of geographical origin, and its mode of action depends on the organism it is acting on and includes growth inhibition, immunomodulation, macrophage activation, perturbation of the cell membrane architecture, phospholipid disturbances, and mitochondrial targets. Expand
The phytochemistry of the honeybee.
