Abstract Cedrus deodara (Roxb.) Loud. commonly called as deodar, is a species of cedar native to the Western Himalayas in Eastern Afghanistan, Northern Pakistan, North-Central India, South Western Tibet and Western Nepal. The chemical constituents obtained from different parts of plant include wikstromal, matairesinol, dibenzylbutyrolactol, berating, isopimpillin, lignans 1, 4 diaryl butane, benzofuranoid neo lingam, isohemacholone, sesquiterpenes LIII: deodarone, atlantone, deodarin… Expand

A potent antibrowning agent from pine needles of Cedrus deodara: 2R,3R-dihydromyricetin.
TLDR
It was found that 2R,3R-dihydromyricetin was effective in inhibiting the browning of apple slices treated with a concentration as low as 0.05% at 25 °C for 24 h, and showed a good synergistic antibrowning effect with ascorbic acid. Expand
Investigation of antibrowning activity of pine needle (Cedrus deodara) extract with fresh-cut apple slice model and identification of the primary active components
Cedrus deodara is a large evergreen tree of the family Pinaceae and widely distributed to the west of Himalayas. Its pine needles are consumed as a traditional food and perceived as a valuable sourceExpand
Utilization of the extract of Cedrus deodara (Roxb. ex D.Don) G. Don against the biofilm formation and the expression of virulence genes of cariogenic bacterium Streptococcus mutans.
TLDR
Under the treatment of CDE, S. mutans formed less biofilm on both coverslips and enamel surfaces and synthesized less EPS, and CDE downregulated the expression of gtf genes and inhibited the enzyme activity of Gtfs. Expand

The study was conducted to explore the potential of pine needles (Cedrus deodara (Roxb.) Loud.) extract as a novel preservative in cheese. Low fat Kalari, a hard and dry cheese, was used as a modelExpand
Medicinal Plants with Potent Anti-inflammatory and Anti-arthritic Properties found in Eastern Parts of the Himalaya: An Ethnomedicinal Review
TLDR
This review highlights the medicinal plants from the Eastern Himalayan region which showed promising therapeutic activity against inflammatory diseases as well as novel formulation approaches of these medicinal plants. Expand
An ethnopharmacological survey and comparative analysis of plants from the Sudhnoti District, Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan
TLDR
Most of the plants documented have uses that match those previously reported for the region and other parts of the world, with the exception of novel medicinal uses for 11 plant species. Expand
Ethnodermatological use of medicinal plants in India: From ayurvedic formulations to clinical perspectives - A review.
TLDR
This review on the practices of ethnobotanical dermatology in India confirms the belief that their analysis will accelerate the discovery of new, effective therapeutic agents for skin diseases. Expand
Indigenous knowledge of the use of medicinal plants in Bheri, Muzaffarabad, Azad Kashmir, Pakistan
TLDR
This study confirmed the traditional uses of plants being used in the indigenous health care system in the study area and confirmed a gradual decline of indigenous knowledge in the younger generation was due to socioeconomic changes. Expand
GC-MS Characterizations of Termiticidal Heartwood Extractives from Wood Species Utilized in Pakistan
TLDR
Termites showed increasing levels of mortality with increasing concentration of heartwood extractive when exposed to extractive treated non-durable southern yellow pine blocks in a force feeding test compared to SYP blocks treated with water or solvent (ethanol: toluene) only. Expand
Cedrus deodara (bark) essential oil induces apoptosis in human colon cancer cells by inhibiting Nuclear Factor kappa B.
TLDR
These results unveil CDEO inhibits cell proliferation and induces apoptosis in colon cancer cells which can be attributed to the abrogation of NFκB signaling pathway. Expand

Effect of Herbal Molluscicides and Their Combinations on the Reproduction of the Snail Lymnaea acuminata
TLDR
Withdrawal of the snails to fresh water after the above treatment caused a significant recovery in the fecundity of the snail Lymnaea acuminata, and twenty-four-hour sublethal treatment with the acetogenins caused a maximum reduction in the protein, amino acid, DNA, and RNA in the ovotestis of treated LymNAea acumingata.
