  author={Yogesh C. Joshi and Bhawana Goyal},
This article presents a review about anthocyanins and shows they have anticancer property. Mechanism that may be responsible for the inhibitory effect of anthocyanins in carcinogenesis and tumor growth is either cellular redox status modification or any interference with basic cellular functions like cell cycle, apoptosis, inflammation, angiogenesis, invasion and metastasis. New anticancer agents can be developed taking reference of anthocyanins or by using them as basic structure. Further…

Analysis and Antioxidant Capacity of Anthocyanin Pigments. Part III: An Introduction to Sample Preparation and Extraction

Anthocyanins are one of the many compound classes that belong to the polyphenolic flavonoid group. This group species of secondary metabolites are synthesized in almost all higher order plants,

Stressing conditions as tools to boost the biosynthesis of valuable plant natural products.

This review first deals with Brazilian flora, contextualizing the most studied medicinal species and related patents and describes a compilation of relevant works based on the use of stress conditions to enhance the biosynthesis of valuable metabolites in cell cultures, tissue cultures and whole plants by using native or crop plants around the world.

Screenning Bioactive Compounds from Allium sativum as HER2 Inhibitors Targeting Breast Cancer by Docking Methods

The study results show that there were two compounds having HER2 inhibitory activity stronger than the reference compounds including biochanin A and cyanidin 3-malonylglucoside which may be potential natural product compounds for HER2-positive breast cancer treatment.

Potential of Anti Breast Cancer Black Ethanol Rice Extract (Oryza sativa L). indica) In Decreasing Levels of CA 15-3 Serum in the White Mice Sprague dawley in Induction 7.12-Dimethylbenz (α) Antracene (DMBA) and Estrogen

Breast cancer is cancer that has the high incidence in Indonesia. Black rice (Oryza sativa L. indica) is a plant that has an anticancer potency. This research aim is to prove black rice as a

The conclusion of the study is that black rice ethanol extract can decrease the activity of PKB and CA 15-3 serum level in white rat modelled breast cancer.

Angiogenesis inhibiting capacity of Basella rubra and Syszygium cumini fruit extracts using chorioallantoic membrane assay

Assessment of angiogenesis inhibiting potential of B. rubra and S. cumini fruit extracts as cell mass growth retardants using Chorioallantoic Membrane (CAM) Assay in Anas platyrhyncho (common Duck) embryo showed that both treatments showed very good anti-angiogenic effect.

Effects of Exposure to Ultrasonic Waves on Extraction of Evaporation Methods on The Anthocyanin Content of Green Betal and Basil Leaves

Synthetic anticancer agents have serious side effects on health. Therefore, it is necessary to develop natural anticancer agents with better effectiveness for cancer treatment. This study aims to



Plant Phenolics: Extraction, Analysis and Their Antioxidant and Anticancer Properties
