Downstream processing of hyperforin from Hypericum perforatum root cultures

Toward enhanced hyperforin production in St. John's wort root cultures

The results obtained offer a basis for a scalable production of hyperforin and a sustainable source for a tissue culture‐based phytomedicine and a potential scalability from flask to lab‐scale stirred bioreactors has been demonstrated.

The Petroleum Ether Extract from Hypericum perforatum Root Cultures Exhibits Potent Antiproliferative Activity in Human Keratinocytes and Fibroblasts.

The antiproliferative effect of a petroleum ether extract from the in vitro root cultures was investigated and may introduce H. perforatum root cultures as a novel lead system for the treatment of hypertrophic scars.

Exodermis and endodermis are the sites of xanthone biosynthesis in Hypericum perforatum roots.

Xanthone compounds as the BPS products are detected in the same tissues and are not only highly specialized barriers for controlling the passage of water and solutes but also preformed lines of defence against soilborne pathogens and predators.

A promiscuous CoA ligase provides benzoyl-CoA for xanthone biosynthesis in Hypericum.

A transcript for a plant acyl-activating enzyme (AAE) was cloned from xanthone-producing H. calycinum cell cultures and indicated that HcAAE1 exhibits promiscuous substrate preference, with benzoic acid being the sole aromatic substrate accepted.

A comparison of artificial intelligence techniques for predicting hyperforin content in Hypericum perforatum L. in different ecological habitats

Abstract Hyperforin, a major bioactive constituent of Hypericum concentration, is impacted by various phenological phases and soil characteristics. We aimed to design a model predicting hyperforin

Pharmacokinetic Interactions between Herbal Medicines and Drugs: Their Mechanisms and Clinical Relevance

Clinical studies improving knowledge on the ability of selected herbal medicines to influence the pharmacokinetics of co-administered drugs are focused on, finding in vitro studies are useful to anticipate potential herbal medicine-drug interactions.



Hyperforin production in Hypericum perforatum root cultures.

Hypericins: biotechnological production from cell and organ cultures

This review describes the biotechnological approaches employed for the production of hypericins and focuses upon the challenges and future prospects.

Downstream processing of hyperforin from Hypericum perforatum root cultures

Aristoforin, a Novel Stable Derivative of Hyperforin, Is a Potent Anticancer Agent

One of these hyperforin derivatives, Aristoforin, is more soluble in aqueous solution than hyper forin and is additionally highly stable and retains the antitumor properties of the parental compound without inducing toxicity in experimental animals, suggesting that Aristo forin has potential as an anticancer drug.

Total Synthesis of Hyperforin

The goal of the work presented in this thesis was to devise a new enantioselective, versatile approach to hyperforin that would not only incorporate elements of modularity but also exploit latent symmetry within the natural product that would enable facile analog synthesis.

The Production of Dianthrones and Phloroglucinol Derivatives in St. John’s Wort

The primary conclusion that arises from this treatise is that although the authors still do not understand fully how hypericins and hyperforin are synthesized in St. John’s wort, the biotechnological aspects involved in regulating the production of these compounds in intact plants and in vitro cultures have been elucidated over the past several years.

Biological evaluation of hyperforin and its hydrogenated analogue on bacterial growth and biofilm production.

Results from this investigation are noteworthy from the point of view of future development of these polyprenylated phloroglucinols as potential antibiotics.

Production of St. John's wort plants under controlled environment for maximizing biomass and secondary metabolites

These results provide the first indication that growing St. John's wort plants, under CO2 enrichment in a closed environment system can enhance the biomass and medicinal contents.
