Abstract Context: Prangos ferulacea (L.) Lindl. (Apiaceae) is a perennial plant found in the Middle-East, where it is commonly used as an antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory agent. It is a rich source of coumarins. Objective: To purify several coumarins from P. ferulacea and to screen their cytotoxicity and anti-herpes activity. Materials and methods: Acetone extract of roots of P. ferulacea was subjected to several chromatographic separations to render pure coumarins (1–8). Anti-herpes virus… 
Antiproliferative evaluation of terpenoids and terpenoid coumarins from Ferulago macrocarpa (Fenzl) Boiss. fruits
TLDR
1,10-di-epi-Cubenol could be considered as a potential proliferation inhibitor of MCF-7 and HT-29 cell lines, and its structures were established by spectroscopic methods including nuclear magnetic resonance and MS analyses.
Bioactive coumarins from the roots and fruits of Ferulago trifida Boiss., an endemic species to Iran
TLDR
Phytochemical analysis of the Ferulago trifida Boiss led to the isolation and identification of suberosin, isoimperatorin, prantschimgin, oxypeucedanin, and suberenol, which demonstrated a potent antioxidant power and higher preferential toxicity against MDA-MB-23 cells.
Oxypeucedanin and isoimperatorin extracted from Prangos ferulacea (L.) Lindl protect PC12 pheochromocytoma cells from oxidative stress and apoptosis induced by doxorubicin
TLDR
Pretreatment with oxypeucedanin and isoimperatorin significantly decreased DOX-induced apoptosis through reduction of caspase-3 activity and ROS generation and an increase in MMP, and showed pretreatment with these compounds leads to regulation of Bcl-2.
The Prangos genus: a comprehensive review on traditional use, phytochemistry, and pharmacological activities
TLDR
It can be concluded, that further preclinical and clinical data are necessary to assess the rationale and safety of the medicinal and food use of Prangos species.
The Nonvolatile and Volatile Metabolites of Prangos ferulacea and Their Biological Properties.
TLDR
This work reviews the literature on this species published between 1965 and 2018, describes its volatile and nonvolatile metabolites, and outlines its pharmacological effects.
Safety Assessment of Osthole Isolated from Prangos ferulacea : Acute and Subchronic Toxicities and Modulation of Cytochrome P450
Background: Osthole (7-methoxy-8-(3-methyl-2-butenyl)-2H-1-benzopyran-2-one), a natural coumarin derivative, has exhibited various pharmacological properties. In addition, the possibility of its
New polyacetylenes from Echinophora cinerea (Boiss.) Hedge et Lamond
TLDR
The potency of the compounds to induce cell death was determined on SKNMC, PC3 and MCF-7 cell lines using MTT method in which compounds 1 and 2 showed moderate cytotoxic effects, especially against PC3 cells.
Phytochemical analysis and anticancer activity of Falcaria vulgaris Bernh growing in Moghan plain, northwest of Iran
TLDR
This inhibition was made through induction of apoptosis and due to the presence of effective volatile compounds such as terpenoids and non-terpenoids which could be considered as valuable natural sources for the isolation of anti-cancer compounds.
