ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE The stem bark of Geissospermum vellosii has been traditionally used by the native population of northern South America to treat malaria. Indole alkaloids have been previously isolated from this plant, but the antiplasmodial constituents have not yet been described. As part of our ongoing investigations of new bioactive compounds with activity against malaria parasites, we tested the in vitro antiplasmodial activity of isolated fractions and purified alkaloids from… Expand

TLDR
The results of the experiments demonstrated that the combination of high performance counter current chromatography and ESI-MS(n) is a sensitive, selective and effective approach for rapid isolation and characterization of alkaloids from G. vellosii. Expand
Flavopereirine—An Alkaloid Derived from Geissospermum vellosii—Presents Leishmanicidal Activity In Vitro
TLDR
Flavopereirine proved to be a promising molecule for its antileishmanial activity, showing no violation of Lipinski’s rule of five, and even better results than the known inhibitor of oligopeptidase B, antipain with three violations. Expand
Actividad antimalárica in vitro por citometría de flujo de extractos de especies vegetales de la familia Apocynaceae de la región Loreto, LIPNAA - Iquitos, 2016

Indole alkaloids from Geissospermum reticulatum.
TLDR
Indole alkaloids isolated from Geissospermum reticulatum exhibited selective action and were more active against Leishmania than against Trypanosoma, and alkaloid 4 was also very active against L. infantum. Expand
Chemical composition, ethnopharmacology and biological activity of Geissospermum Allemão species (Apocynaceae Juss.)

Antiplasmodial Medicinal Plants: A Literature Review on Efficacy, Selectivity and Phytochemistry of Crude Plant Extracts
TLDR
It was observed that 14 plant extracts exhibited pronounced antiplasmodial activity with IC50 ≤ 5 μg/ml, and Clerodendrum rotundifolium and Microglossa pyrifolia leaves extract showed highest activity against both chloroquine-sensitive and resistant strains of Plasmodium. Expand
Phytotoxicity of alkaloids, coumarins and flavonoids isolated from 11 species belonging to the Rutaceae and Meliaceae families
TLDR
The results indicate that these compounds could be involved as semiochemicals in the allelopathic interactions of these plant species and are good candidates as sources of allelochemicals that could be useful in agriculture. Expand
Revisiting Previously Investigated Plants: A Molecular Networking-Based Study of Geissospermum laeve.
TLDR
Three new monoterpene indole alkaloids (1-3) have been isolated from the bark of Geissospermum laeve, together with the known alkaloid compounds (-)-leuconolam (4), geissolosimine (5), and geissospermine (6) and the antiparasitic activities against Plasmodium falciparum and Leishmania donovani were determined. Expand
Ethnopharmacological evaluation of medicinal plants used against malaria by quilombola communities from Oriximiná, Brazil.
TLDR
A strong correlation between the consensus of the informants from quilombola communities living in a malaria endemic area and the salience index indicating antiplasmodial activity was observed, where the ethnospecies mostly cited to be effective against malaria produced the most active plant extracts in vitro.

Antiplasmodial and Cytotoxic Activities of Drimane Sesquiterpenes from Canella winterana
TLDR
The hexane extract from the leaves of Canella winterana exhibited strong activity against the chloroquine sensitive (CQS) strain of Plasmodium falciparum (D10) in vitro (IC50 2.53 μg/mL), which led to the isolation of 5 drimane-type sesquiterpenoids and the newly isolated hemiacetal, named muzigodiol.

Isolation and identification of antiplasmodial N-alkylamides from Spilanthes acmella flowers using centrifugal partition chromatography and ESI-IT-TOF-MS.
TLDR
A systematic approach for investigating a suitable centrifugal partition chromatography (CPC) solvent system for N-alkylamides separation was reported, and CPC fractions demonstrated significantly higher antiplasmodial activity compared to corresponding purified N-alkinglamides, thus suggesting that interactions between these N-alklamides may potentiate antiplAsmodial bioactivity.
