In the current study, we screened 7 clonal lines from single seed phenotypes of Lamiaceae family for the inhibition of alpha-amylase, alpha-glucosidase and angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitory activity. Water extracts of oregano had the highest alpha-glucosidase inhibition activity (93.7%), followed by chocolate mint (85.9%) and lemon balm (83.9%). Sage (78.4 %), and three different clonal lines of rosemary: rosemary LA (71.4%), rosemary 6 (68.4%) and rosemary K-2 (67.8%) also showed… 


The insights from this research provide the biochemical rationale for further in vivo studies based on in vitro enzyme inhibition studies and help to target specific cultivars of raspberry with specific and uniform phenolic profiles for diet designs targeted for managing early stages of type II diabetes and hypertension.


Combinations of pepper could be screened for dietary management of type 2 diabetes, associated hypertension and microvascular complications linked to oxidative dysfunction, and provide the basis for clinical studies.

In vitro study on the hypoglycemic potential of Nicotiana tabacum leaf extracts

The observed inhibitions of α-amylase and α-glucosidase suggest that the leaf extracts of N. tabacum may be useful in the management of Diabetes mellitus, which may due to the presence of phytochemicals.

In vitro inhibitory potential of selected Malaysian plants against key enzymes involved in hyperglycemia and hypertension.

A nutraceutical potential of some of these plants for hyperglycemia and hypertension prevention associated with type 2 diabetes is suggested.

Evaluation of indigenous grains from the Peruvian Andean region for antidiabetes and antihypertension potential using in vitro methods.

This in vitro study indicates the potential of combination of Andean whole grain cereals, pseudocereals, and legumes to develop effective dietary strategies for managing type 2 diabetes and associated hypertension and provides the rationale for animal and clinical studies.

Evaluation of Rhodiola crenulata and Rhodiola rosea for management of type II diabetes and hypertension.

Results suggested that alpha-glucosidase inhibitory activities of both Rhodiola extracts correlated to the phenolic content, antioxidant activity and phenolic profile of the extracts.

In vitro anti-diabetic activity of compounds from pithecellobium dulce fruit peel

The findings indicate Pithecellobium dulce fruit peel possess strong hypoglycemic effect and hence can be utilized as an adjunct in the management of diabetes mellitus.



Biosynthesis and Medical Applications of Rosmarinic Acid

Genetically uniform shoot-based clonal lines of several species in the family Lamiaceae have been isolated using tissue culture approaches and characterization of this pathway will help to identify key regulatory genes involved in rosmarinic acid biosynthesis.

Inhibitory effect of clonal oregano extracts against porcine pancreatic amylase in vitro.

The finding that clonal oregano extracts can inhibit PPA supports a potential new functionality for oregana as an anti-hyperglycemic agent and provides an opportunity for a food-based strategy for modulation of starch breakdown to glucose, which could contribute to the management of hyperglycemia and diabetes complications in the long term.

Isolation of Amylase Inhibitor-producing Microorganism

An amylase inhibitor-producing microorganism was identified as a subspecies of Strepto- myces diastaticus from morphological and physiological studies and was named Streptomyces diastaticus subsp.

Specific Desmutagens (Antimutagens) in Oregano against a Dietary Carcinogen, Trp-P-2, Are Galangin and Quercetin

This study found two compounds which strongly suppressed the mutagenicity of one of the dietary carcinogens, 3-amino-1-methyl-5H-pyrido[4,3-b]indole (Trp-P-2), in oregano (Origanum vulgare). The
