In vitro antimycobacterial activities of Physalis angulata L.
By in vitro determination of the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) using the microdilution method with Alamar blue oxidation-reduction dye, crude CHCl3 Physalis angulata extracts and physalin-containing fractions displayed antimycobacterial activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Expand
Molluscicidal activity of Physalis angulata L. extracts and fractions on Biomphalaria tenagophila (d'Orbigny, 1835) under laboratory conditions.
Evaluated molluscicide activity of Biomphalaria tenagophila specimens under laboratory conditions show that ethyl acetate and acetone extracts from the whole plant, the ethanolic extracts of the roots and the physalins pool from stems and leaves were active. Expand
Antimycobacterial physalins from Physalis angulata L. (Solanaceae)
Structural elucidation of both physalins D and B was based on detailed 13C and 1H NMR spectral analysis with the aid of 2D‐correlation spectroscopy, and the assignment of the 13C chemical shift for physalin D is reported here for the first time. Expand
