The Jatropha curcas plant has been used since ancient time to treat open wounds, haemorrhage, to stop blood loss and to enhance wound healing process in folklore/tribal medicine by the people of tropical, subtropical and semi-arid countries. Discovery of new therapeutic molecule(s) is necessary to treat the thrombotic and other disorders in coagulation. There is a need to evaluate and isolate active molecules with medicinal property. This study is conducted to evaluate and characterize the…

Potent procoagulant and platelet aggregation inducing serine protease from Tridax procumbens extract
Background: Tridax procumbens extract (TPE) has been widely used in tribal/folk medicine to stop bleeding and to enhance wound healing process. Based on its traditional medicinal importance, the TPE
Thrombin- and plasmin-like and platelet-aggregation-inducing activities of Plumeria alba L. latex: Action of cysteine protease.
PaNL possesses procoagulant, fibrino(geno)lytic, thrombin- and plasmin-like activities and induces platelet aggregation, which could explain its usage for wound treatment in folk medicine.
Anticoagulant and Fibrinogenolytic Properties of Seed Extract of Psidium guajava
The objective of this study was to identify and evaluate for the first time the anticoagulant and fibrinogenolytic protease from Psidium guajava seed extract. The Psidium guajava seed extract in
Sol–Gel Co-Precipitation Synthesis, Anticoagulant and Anti-Platelet Activities of Copper-Doped Nickel Manganite Nanoparticles
The NCB-NPs showed anticoagulant activity by enhancing the coagulation time of citrated plasma of human beings and were known to exhibit anti-blood-clotting and antiplatelet activities, which can be used in the field of biomedical applications, especially as antithrombotic agents.
Plant Science Today
The enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidant levels in the released salt tolerant Pokkali, (vytilla, VTL 19) varieties were studied under different NaCl concentrations (0-150 mM NaCl). The specific


Effect of Toona microcarpa Harms Leaf Extract on the Coagulation System
It is found that Toona microcarpa Harms leaf extract (TMHE) prolonged APTT, PT, and TT clotting times in a dose-dependent manner and significantly inhibited platelet aggregation induced by thrombin, but not ADP or collagen.
Procoagulant activity of Calotropis gigantea latex associated with fibrin(ogen)olytic activity.
The latex of Calotropis gigantea is a rich source of useful components that has medicinal properties and one of the main applications is in controlling bleeding and the hydrolyzing activity was completely inhibited by IAA indicating they belong to the super family, cysteine proteases.
Anticoagulant, Antiherpetic and Antibacterial Activities of Sulphated Polysaccharide from Indian Medicinal Plant Tridax procumbens L. (Asteraceae)
The sulphated polysaccharide from the widespread Tridax procumbens plant was studied for the anticoagulant, antiherpetic and antibacterial activity and exhibited detectable antiviral effect towards HSV-1 with IC50 value 100–150 μg/ml.
This current review article gives comprehensive information about the T. procumbens taxonomy, morphology, geographical distribution, phytoconstituents and pharmacological activities.
Anticoagulant and anti-platelet activity of polyphenolic-polysaccharide preparation isolated from the medicinal plant Erigeron canadensis L.
The polyphenolic-polysaccharide preparation from E. canadensis may become a new source of anticoagulant compound potentially useful in anticoaggulant and anti-platelet therapy.
Anti-coagulant activity of a metalloprotease: further characterization from the Indian cobra (Naja naja) venom
A high molecular mass, non toxic metalloprotease the NN-PF3 with the bound Ca2+ and Zn2+ from the Naja naja venom has been studied further for its anticoagulant property. The molecular mass by
Plant collagenase: unique collagenolytic activity of cysteine proteases from ginger.
The results support a role for ginger proteases as an alternative to papain, in commercial applications such as meat tenderization, where collagen is the target substrate.
Effect of Aqueous Extract and Fractions of Fagonia arabica on In Vitro Anticoagulant Activity
Aqueous FA and fraction FA5 were most active in in vitro anticoagulation, and any of the phytochemicals identified could be considered the active component.
Ethnobotany, ethnopharmacology and toxicity of Jatropha curcas L. (Euphorbiaceae): A review
The present review reveals that J. curcas is a valuable source of medicinally important molecules and provides convincing support for its future use in modern medicine.
Characterization of three edema-inducing phospholipase A2 enzymes from habu (Trimeresurus flavoviridis) venom and their interaction with the alkaloid aristolochic acid.
Aristolochic acid, an alkaloid from the medicinal plant Aristolochia radix, interacts with these PLA2 enzymes and inhibits direct and indirect hemolytic activity, as well as edema-inducing activity, of TFV PL-X, but fails to neutralize the lethal potency of the enzyme.
