LC–MS–MS and GC–MS analyses of biologically active extracts of Tunisian Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) Seeds

The objective of this study is to investigate the chemical composition of biologically active extracts from Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) Seeds. A variety of in vitro models such as

Plant-Based Chemicals Extraction and Isolation

This study describes the development of chromatographic separation and structural elucidation techniques of secondary metabolites, including analytical and preparative chromatography, mass spectrometry (MS), one- and two-dimensional (2D) Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) experiences.

Optimization and validation of a label-free MRM method for the quantification of cytochrome P450 isoforms in biological samples

A simple method to quantify six CYPs in various biological samples without isotopic labeling in both human liver microsomes and mitochondria and in recombinant expression systems such as baculosomes and the HepG2 cell line is validated and applied.

Drimane Sesquiterpenoids and Isochromone Derivative from the Endophytic Fungus Pestalotiopsis sp. M-23

Three new drimane sesquiterpenoids (1–3) together with the known 2α-hydroxyisodrimeninol (4), and a new isochromone derivative (5), were obtained from the solid cultures of fungal strain



Cinnamacrins A-C, cinnafragrin D, and cytostatic metabolites with alpha-glucosidase inhibitory activity from Cinnamosma macrocarpa.

Two new monomeric and two new dimeric drimane sesquiterpenes, cinnamacrins A-C (1-3) and cinnafragrin D (4), along with bemadienolide (5), capsicodendrin (6), cinnamodial (7), cinnamolide (8),

Occurrence, biological activity and synthesis of drimane sesquiterpenoids.

In this review the names, structures and occurrence of all new drimanes and rearranged drimanes which have been published between January 1990 and January 2003 have been collected. Subjects that have

Cinnamon bark extract improves glucose metabolism and lipid profile in the fructose-fed rat.

Findings indicate the improvement of glucose metabolism in-vivo by CBEt in fructose-fed rats and prevented the hyperlipidaemia observed inructose- fed rats and improved glucose tolerance.

Cinnamon improves glucose and lipids of people with type 2 diabetes.

The results of this study demonstrate that intake of 1, 3, or 6 g of cinnamon per day reduces serum glucose, triglyceride, LDL cholesterol, and total cholesterol in people with type 2 diabetes and suggest that the inclusion of cinnamon in the diet of people withtype 2 diabetes will reduce risk factors associated with diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.
