Historically, tobacco use was primarily recreational and has been smoked in cigarettes, cigars and pipes, as well as smokeless forms of consumption, all of which are associated with adverse health effects. However, recent scientific investigations indicate that tobacco also contains several diverse secondary metabolites that may provide potential health benefits in the treatment of cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. Specifically, the leaf and flower of Nicotiana tabacum contain high amounts… Expand
Insight into the aroma profile of Bulgarian tobacco absolute oil
Abstract The tobacco absolute usually obtained from tobacco waste, generated at various stages of post-harvest processing of the tobacco leaves and the cigarettes production, can be an importantExpand
Semisynthetic analogues of the marine cembranoid sarcophine as prostate and breast cancer migration inhibitors.
TLDR
Sarcophine and analogues showed antimigratory activity against breast and prostate cancer cell lines, which encouraged further semisynthestic optimizations to improve its activity and establish a preliminary structure-activity relationship. Expand
Semisynthetic and SAR Studies of Amide Derivatives of Neocrotocembraneic Acid as Potential Antitumor Agents
TLDR
A series of novel amide derivatives of cembranoid neocrotocembraneic acid exhibited more potent antiproliferative activity than the reference drug etoposide against drug-resistant cell line K562/A02, indicating that it possessed a great potential for further development as a multidrug resistance modulator by structural modification. Expand
Cytotoxic Plants: Potential Uses in Prevention and Treatment of Cancer
TLDR
Being the rich sources of vitamins, minerals, and fiber without posing “any side effects” made fruits and vegetables the best choice to lowering cancer risk and also in maintaining good general health. Expand
The tobacco cembranoid (1S,2E,4S,7E,11E)-2,7,11-cembratriene-4,6-diol as a novel angiogenesis inhibitory lead for the control of breast malignancies.
TLDR
In vitro, cembranoid 1 significantly reduced the activated VEGFR2 levels in multiple breast cancer cell lines and is a potential antiangiogenic lead useful for future use to control breast malignancies. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that IA inhibits the production of inflammatory mediators in an in vitro model system of C6 glioma and human peripheral monocytes and suggests that they may serve as novel neuroprotective agents. Expand
Extraction, purification and anti-TMV effects of α (β)-2,7,11-cembratriene-4,6-diol from tobacco leaves
TLDR
The α(β)-CBD mainly stimulates disease resistance of tobacco plants to resist TMV and it can be used as bioagents to control TMV in the future. Expand
Chemical structures, biosynthesis, bioactivities, biocatalysis and semisynthesis of tobacco cembranoids: An overview
Cembranoids, 14-membered carbocyclic diterpenes composed of four isoprene units, are mainly found in plants of the Nicotiana and Pinus genera, as well as in soft coral and other marine organisms. WeExpand
Chemical Basis of the Fungicidal Activity of Tobacco Extracts against Valsa mali
TLDR
The study on isolating tobacco compounds with fungicidal activity suggests that tobacco leaves and inflorescences are excellent plant resources for the biological control of V. mali. Expand
Evaluation of native and exotic Brazilian plants for anticancer activity
TLDR
Native and exotic Brazilian plants collected in the State of Minas Gerais were evaluated for their anticancer potential and the most active extracts were those obtained from Lantana fucata, Copaifera langsdorffii, and Momordica charantia, the most promising since it did not present unspecific toxicity.

Anticancer and anti-inflammatory sulfur-containing semisynthetic derivatives of sarcophine.
TLDR
The epoxide ring is targeted to generate sulfur-containing derivatives of sarcophine by reacting it with ammonium thiocyanate and Lawesson's reagent and the effect of these derivatives on highly malignant +SA mammary epithialial cell proliferation is reported. Expand
Antiproliferative potential of sarcophine and its semisynthetic sulfur-containing derivatives against human mammary carcinoma cell lines
TLDR
The preliminary results suggest that the sulfur-containing derivatives of sarcophine, especially 2 and 3, show potent and cell-specific antiproliferative activity. Expand
Identification of cembratriene-4,6-diol as antitumor-promoting agent from cigarette smoke condensate.
TLDR
The present data suggest that EBV-EA inhibition assay using Raji cells is effective for the first screening of inhibitors of tumor promotion, and provide evidence that CSC contains antitumor- Promoting agents in addition to carcinogenic and tumor-promoting agents already reported. Expand
Biocatalytic and antimetastatic studies of the marine cembranoids sarcophine and 2-epi-16-deoxysarcophine.
TLDR
Sarcophine, 2-epi-16-deoxysarcophines, and metabolites 5-9 revealed significant antimetastatic activity against the highly metastatic mouse melanoma cell line (B16B15b). Expand
Semisynthesis of new sarcophine derivatives with chemopreventive activity.
TLDR
In preliminary in vitro tests on inhibition of EBV-EA activation, compounds 10 and 12-15 have shown higher activity than the known chemopreventive agent sarcophytol A. Expand
ROLE OF INTERMEDIARY BIOMARKERS IN DETERMINING THE ANTICANCER EFFICACY OF MARINE COMPOUNDS
In the present study, two of the probable an umor marine compounds, manzamine A and sarcophine, were screened using benzo[a]pyrene (BP)-derived DNA adduct formation in MCF-7 cells as intermediaryExpand
Tobacco Cembranoids
Abstract The discovery of the first diterpenoids of the cembrane type in tobacco dates back to the early 1960's. Since then some forty tobacco cembranoids have been encountered. Most of these have aExpand
The effect of epigallocatechin galleate and sarcophytol A on DNA strand breakage induced by tobacco-specific nitrosamines and stimulated human phagocytes.
TLDR
Both SaA and EGCG provided significant protection against the induction of genetic damage in these cells and may prove useful in the chemoprevention of tobacco-induced carcinogenesis. Expand
Structurally Novel Bioconversion Products of the Marine Natural Product Sarcophine Effectively Inhibit JB6 Cell Transformation.
TLDR
When evaluated for potential to inhibit TPA-induced JB6 cell transformation, several of the metabolites mediated inhibitory responses greater than sarcophytol A or sarcophine, most notably 7alpha-hydroxy-Delta(8(19))-deepoxysarcophine (6), which was comparable to 13-cis-retinoic acid. Expand
