Plants which have been traditionally eaten by alpine populations may provide new opportunities of agricultural development for mountain regions. In this context we investigated the chemical composition of Cirsium spinosissimum (Asteraceae), a perennial thistle. Its receptacles were eaten by shepherds in Valais (Switzerland). Extracts of aerial parts were subjected to a comprehensive metabolite profiling, using a dereplication platform, combining HPLC-PDA-MS and offline microprobe NMR analysis… Expand
Metabolic Alterations in Two Cirsium Species Identified at Distinct Phenological Stages using UPLC-QTOF/MS.
Results suggest that components of the phenylpropanoid metabolic pathway are upregulated in the full flowering stage in Cirsium, although the authors did observe some variation between the species. Expand

The approximately 125 species of the genus Calea L. (Asteraceae) are distributed throughout tropical and subtropical regions of the Americas. Some species have medicinal properties. Based on popularExpand
Popular medicinal uses of Calea uniflora Less. (Asteraceae) and its contribution to the study of Brazilian medicinal plants.
It was observed that of the 94.1% who recognized C. uniflora, 74.3% utilize it as a medicinal plant and 65.4% of such knowledge originates in childhood, mainly through the family, while 98.5% stated that it has no toxicity. Expand
Isolation and Biological Properties of the Natural Flavonoids Pectolinarin and Pectolinarigenin—A Review
Pectolinarin has turned out to be a good biological agent especially due to its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic, and antitumor activities, evaluated both in vitro and in vivo. Expand
Simple and rapid procedures for the extraction of bioactive compounds from Guayule leaves
Abstract Solid liquid extraction (SLE) and ultrasound-assisted extraction (UAE) using food grade solvents were applied to Guayule leaves in order to obtain phenolic compound-rich extracts. TheExpand

Dereplication strategies in natural product research: How many tools and methodologies behind the same concept?
Five distinct dereplication workflows that can be characterized by the nature of starting materials, by the selected analytical technique, and above all by the final objective are brought to light. Expand


Comprehensive analysis of Phyteuma orbiculare L., a wild Alpine food plant.
Plants which have been traditionally eaten by the alpine population may provide new opportunities for agricultural development in mountain regions. In this context we have investigated the chemicalExpand
Differentiation of Cirsium japonicum and C. setosum by TLC and HPLC-MS.
The Chinese Pharmacopoeia indicates the use of field thistle and Japanese fieldThistle in the treatment of bleeding and inflammation and in the absence of an analytical method for the differentiation and analysis of these two species, TLC and HPLC-MS methods have been developed. Expand
Chemistry of Cirsium and Carduus: a role in ecological risk assessment for biological control of weeds?
It is suggested that further research on thistle chemistry in insect feeding is warranted, since the exotic Canada thistle (Cirsium arvense) is an invasive thistle of current concern in North America and such research on mechanisms underlying host range expansion by exotic insects would be useful.

Metabolite profiling of the leaves of the Brazilian folk medicine Sideroxylon obtusifolium.
Four saponins and ten flavonol glycosides were isolated from the butanol-soluble fraction of an ethanolic extract and could be used in the future as chemical markers for quality control of this herbal drug. Expand
Ethnobotanical survey on wild alpine food plants in Lower and Central Valais (Switzerland).
This study provides for the first time comprehensive data on present day and historical uses of wild plants as food in Lower and Central Valais and can be used to identify species which may provide interesting opportunities for diversification of mountain agriculture. Expand
Polyphenolic compounds and in vitro antimicrobial and antioxidant activity of aqueous extracts from leaves of some Cirsium species
It was observed that the content of small-molecular phenolic compounds had greater influence on the activity of extracts than tannins, and cation 2,2′-azini-di-(3-ethylbenzthiazoline sulphonate) ABTS•+. Expand
Phenolic Compound from the Roots of Cirsium japonicum DC.
From the roots of Cirsium japonicum DC., a new ftavone glycoside (1) was isolated, together with linarin, syringin, sinapy !aldehyde 4-0-/3-D-glucopyr anoside, ferulylaldehyde 4-0-/3-o-glucopyrExpand
Alpine ethnobotany in Italy: traditional knowledge of gastronomic and medicinal plants among the Occitans of the upper Varaita valley, Piedmont
It is suggested that the continuing widespread local collection from the wild of the aerial parts of Alpine wormwood for preparing liqueurs should be seriously reconsidered in terms of sustainability, given the limited availability of these species. Expand
Enhancement of antibacterial effects of extracts from Cirsium species using sodium picolinate and estimation of their toxicity
The results did not show any correlation between antimicrobial activities and TPC, and Cirsium palustre or C. arvense mixed with PS had a concentration-dependent, slightly cytotoxic or stimulating effect on the viability of normal human skin fibroblasts. Expand
