Abstract Satureja myrtifolia (Boiss. & Hohen.) Greuter & Burdeta medicinal plant belonging to the Lamiaceae family was collected from south of Lebanon and hydro-distilled by Clevenger method. Essential oil composition from aerial parts was analyzed by GC-MS technique. The odor of essential oil is characteristic, and clear yellow liquid oil was obtained after hydro-distillation. The yield of the essential oil was 1.25±0.02 % of dry matter (w/w). Thirty nine volatile components were identified in… 

Satureja myrtifolia (Boiss. & Hohen.) Lebanese wild plant, as a resource of natural antioxidants

This study aims to evaluate total phenolic content (TPC) and in vitro antioxydant activity (AA) of S. myrtifolia collected from Lebanon. TPC of S. myrtifolia were extracted by two solvents (methanol

Aroma constituents of shade-dried aerial parts of Iranian dill (Anethum graveolens L.) and savory (Satureja sahendica Bornm.) by solvent-assisted flavor evaporation technique

The aroma profile of shade-dried aerial part from Iranian dill (Anethum graveolens L.) and Savory (Satureja sahendica Bornm.) plants was analyzed by the gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS)

Changes in essential oil content and composition of Salvia limbata C.A. Mey at different growth stages and altitudes.

The findings revealed that the vegetative stage at 1500 m is the optimal harvest time to obtain the highest content of oil while the highest contents of monoterpenes including α-pinene and β-pinsene could be obtained in the same phenological stage at 2000 m.

Chemical Characterization and Suppressor Potent of Juglans regia Essential Oil on Tramadol-Induced Cell Death

It is concluded that J. regia essential oil suppressed the tramadol-induced cell death in neuron-like, PC12 cells through inhibition of NO production, mitochondrial membrane disruption, DNA fragmentation, and caspase-3 activity.

The Effect of Combining Natural Terpenes and Antituberculous Agents against Reference and Clinical Mycobacterium tuberculosis Strains

The obtained enhanced activity of ethambutol and rifampicin against H37Ra strain under the influence of the studied terpenes may be correlated to the capability of essential oil constituents to modify bacterial resistance mechanisms in general.


A large number of the patients in this trial had at least one prior history of inflammatory bowel disease, and the majority had histories of at least two previous bouts of cancer.

α-Pinene Inhibits Human Prostate Cancer Growth in a Mouse Xenograft Model

Treatment with α-pinene significantly inhibited human prostate cancer cell growth and induced apoptosis and cell cycle arrest in the cell line-based model and may be an effective therapeutic agent for prostate cancer treatment.



Essential oil composition of Myrrhis odorata (L.) Scop. leaves grown in Lithuania and France

The chemical composition of essential oils of sweet cicely (Myrrhis odorata (L.) Scop.) leaves from two geographic areas (Lithuania and France) were determined by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry

Antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of essential oil and extracts of fennel (Foeniculum vulgare Mill.) seeds from Pakistan

The present study was conducted to examine the antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of essential oil, methanol and ethanol extracts of fennel (Foeniculum vulgare Mill.) seeds native to Pakistan.

Composition of the Essential Oil of Micromeria myrtifolia Boiss. et Hohen

ABSTRACT Water distilled essential oil of Micromeria myrtifolia Boiss. et Hohen was examined by GC/MS. Forty-six constituents were characterized. β-Caryophyllene (42.56%) was the main component of

DNA barcoding in native plants of the Labiatae (Lamiaceae) family from Chios Island (Greece) and the adjacent Çeşme‐Karaburun Peninsula (Turkey)

Evaluating the utility of DNA barcoding on a local scale in discriminating Labiatae species in Chios Island (Greece) and the adjacent Çeşme‐Karaburun Peninsula (Turkey) shows that matK and trnH‐psbA could serve as single‐region barcodes for LabiATAe species contributing to the conservation and the trade control of valuable plant resources.
