Abstract The advantages and emergent interest in organism-derived bioactive molecules have recently renewed scientific research attention in this field. Since 1967, about 52 different derivatives of phthalate ester (PE) have been reported from different taxonomic groups. Anthropogenic derivatives of the PEs are confined to petroleum products, as a plasticizer. These derivatives exhibit a potential toxicity on the living system, particularly those having a reduced molecular weight. An organism… 
Phthalic Acid Esters: Natural Sources and Biological Activities
These findings suggest that PAEs should not be treated solely as a “human-made pollutant” simply because they have been extensively synthesized and utilized; on the other hand, synthesized PAEs entering the ecosystem might disrupt the metabolic process of certain plant, algal, and microbial communities.
Targeting Akt/NF-κB/p53 Pathway and Apoptosis Inducing Potential of 1,2-Benzenedicarboxylic Acid, Bis (2-Methyl Propyl) Ester Isolated from Onosma bracteata Wall. against Human Osteosarcoma (MG-63) Cells
The results of the present work suggest that the BDCe fraction has chemopreventive properties against osteosarcoma (MG-63) cells through the induction of cell cycle arrest and apoptosis via Akt/NF-κB/p53 pathways.
Study of seasonality and location effects on the chemical composition of essential oils from Eugenia uniflora leaves
The essential oils of Eugenia uniflora leave possess several biological activities but a great variability in their chemical composition is observed. In the present study, gas chromatography and mass
Metabolomic profiling of Jeruju (Acanthus ilicifolius) leaf extract with antioxidant and antibacterial activity on Aeromonas hydrophila growth
Jeruju ( Acanthus ilicifolius ) is a Kalimantan tidal swamp plant that is potent to treat Aeromonas hydrophila infection. This study aimed to determine the potential of Jeruju leaf extract as
Plant growth promoting potential of butyl isobutyl phthalate and Streptomyces sp. from Rumex dentatus on rice.
Rice (Oryza sativa L.) is one of the most important staple foods consumed in many countries of the world. It is mostly consumed in developing countries where different chemical fertilizers are used


Organism-derived phthalate derivatives as bioactive natural products
Biological sources of various phthalates and their bioactivities reported during the past few decades as well as their environmental toxicities and public health risks are summarized.
Chemical characterization, antioxidant and inhibitory effects of some marine sponges against carbohydrate metabolizing enzymes
The results demonstrated that different sponges extracts exhibited inhibitory effects on oxidative stress indices and carbohydrate hydrolyzing enzymes in linear relationships to some extent with concentration of inhibitors (dose dependant).
Purification and structure elucidation of three naturally bioactive molecules from the new terrestrial Streptomyces sp. TN17 strain
According to the biological studies, the pure compounds possess antibacterial and antifungal activities and the chemical structure was established on the basis of spectroscopic studies (MS and NMR) and by comparison with data from the literature.
Antifouling and antibacterial compounds from a marine fungus Cladosporium sp. F14
Three compounds used to separate and purify compounds from Cladosporium sp.
Isolation and Structural Elucidation of Antiproliferative Compounds of Lipidic Fractions from White Shrimp Muscle (Litopenaeus vannamei)
This study demonstrated that polyunsaturated fatty acids are the main compounds responsible for antiproliferative activity in shrimp, and was previously attributed to astaxanthin.
Natural Phthalate Derivatives from the Bacterium Burkholderia cepacia K87
These phthalate derivatives were found to be marginally active or inactive against a number of bacteria and fungi and were reported first time.
