Vinca minor L. (common periwinkle) is an evergreen rhizomous bush of the Apocynaceae (Lindl) family [1, 2]. It is distributed in middle and southern Europe and the Caucuses. It grows in broad-leaf forests of the Baltics, Belorussia, Moldova , and the Ukraine. The plant is often cultivated as a decorative in gardens and parks. Preparations containing alkaloids are prepared from V. minor and used as hypotensive treatments for hypertension [2]. More than 45 alkaloids have been isolated from the…

The Phytochemical Analysis of Vinca L. Species Leaf Extracts Is Correlated with the Antioxidant, Antibacterial, and Antitumor Effects
The Vinca extracts acted in a dose-depended manner against HaCaT keratinocytes and A375 melanoma cells and moreover, with effects on the ultrastructure, nitric oxide concentration, and lactate dehydrogenase release, which could be exploited further for the development of alternative treatments in bacterial infections or as anticancer adjuvants.
Vinca minor L. Leaf Anatomical Structure
V.m. (с. Apocynaceae) is a semishrub with extended vegetative and orthotropic vegetative-generative shoots. The former in a crop reaches up to 80 cm, and forms up to 20 to 30 opposed pairs of leaves,
Preakuammicine: A Long‐Awaited Missing Link in the Biosynthesis of Monoterpene Indole Alkaloids
(16S)-Preakuammicine has been considered a key intermediate in the biosynthesis of monoterpene indole alkaloids since the 1970s. Indeed, preakuammicine plays a crucial role in the biosynthesis of
