Background : DNA damage is one of the major consequences of radiaon exposure onto the biological systems. A series of compounds including flavanoids were found to render DNA protecon against radiaon damage. In this study we elucidated the potenal of run and r un hydrate to protect plasmid DNA against damage induced by irradiaon. Materials and Methods: DPPH and hydroxyl radical scavenging assays were performed to assess the anradical potenal of run and run hydrate. Absor pon measurements were…

Quercetin 3 Rutinoside Facilitates Protection Against Radiation Induced Genotoxic and Oxidative Damage A Study in C57bl 6 Mice

The present findings demonstrate that Q-3-R can effectively minimise radiation-induced genotoxic and oxidative damages and can be explored further to be used as a potent radioprotector in humans.

The present study reports anti-genotoxic potential of Q-3-R against lethal (9Gy) dose of ionizing radiation and indicates that Q-2-R, a naturally occurring bioflavonoid, has shown promising potential against radiation injuries.

Cytogenetic and biochemical competency of chamomile essential oil against γ-rays induced mutagenic effects in mice

The data suggest that Chamomile oil possesses a radioprotec ve poten al against γ-radia on induced cytogene c and biochemical damages in mice, and that preor post-treatment with CEO significantlyuates the acute hazards caused byγ-rays exposure.

Radiation Protection and Mitigation by Natural Antioxidants and Flavonoids: Implications to Radiotherapy and Radiation Disasters.

Recent findings about natural radioprotectors and mitigators which are clinically applicable for radiotherapy patients, as well as injured people in possible radiation accidents are focused on.

Chemical system biology approach to identify multi-targeting FDA inhibitors for treating COVID-19 and associated health complications

Results showed that known drugs, including nine anti-inflammatory compounds, four antibiotics, six antidiabetic compounds, and one cardioprotective compound, could effectively inhibit multiple therapeutic targets of COVID-19.



Sesamol as a Potential Radioprotective Agent: In Vitro Studies

In this study, the radioprotective efficacy of sesamol was investigated in aqueous solution of plasmid DNA and compared with that of melatonin and exhibited more scavenging capacity compared to melatonin.

Radioprotective property of an aqueous extract from valeriana wallichii

The aqueous extract from Valeriana wallichii containing hesperidin was found to significantly counter radiation-induced free radicals at 4 h after 5 Gy irradiation, reduced prolonged oxidative stress led increase in mitochondrial mass, enhanced reproductive viability of cultured cells and protected against radiation- induced DNA damage in solution.

Radioprotective properties of polyphenols from Phyllanthus amarus Linn.

Protection conferred by flavonoids, rutin and quercetin 3-O-glucoside to rat liver mitochondria and plasmid pBR322 DNA from radiation induced damage was due to their strong hydroxyl radical scavenging activity.

Structural stabilization by Hoechst 33258 in γ-irradiated DNA : Evidenced by spectroscopic studies

Investigation of the possible changes in the local environment at binding sites and influence of Hoechst -induced structural stabilization in γ-irradiated DNA found that theLocal environment of H258 at the binding sites in DNA remained unaltered upon irradiation and binding of H 258 appeared to contribute to structural stabilizationIn a concentration -dependent manner.

Determination of Antioxidant Potential in Spilanthes acmella using DPPH assay

The most common synthetic antioxidants in use today are butylated hydroxy anisole (BHA) and butylation hydroxy toluene (BHT), but side effects and health risks such as carcinogenic effects has restricted their use.

In Vitro Antioxidant Activities of Three Red Wine Polyphenols and Their Mixtures: An Interaction Study

The obtained results indicate that the mutual interactions of tested polyphenols in their mixtures are markedly different from each other, depending on the reaction mechanism of the assay used, and this “unpredictability” claim should be very important in multiple systems and processes in Nature.

Respective bioavailability of quercetin aglycone and its glycosides in a rat model.

The data suggest that the 3-O-glucosylation improves the absorption of quercetin in the small intestine, whereas the binding of a rhamnose or of a glucose-rhamnosed moiety to the aglycone markedly depressed its absorption.
