Litsea spp of Laural family are traditionally used as herbal medicine for treating inflammation including gastroenterologia, oedema and rheumatic arthritis. Therefore, it is of interest to investigate and understand the molecular principles for such actions. Here, we have illustrated the binding of thirteen Litsea derived biologically active compounds against the inflammation associated target COX (cyclo-oxygenase) -2 enzymes. We compared the binding information of these compounds with a… Expand
In silico studies on compounds reported from Cissus quadrangularis showed that they possess potential medicinal values with anti-inflammatory properties which form insights to develop new leads for COX-2 inhibition. Expand
Synthesis, COX-1/2 inhibition activities and molecular docking study of isothiazolopyridine derivatives.
Comparing biological activity of the investigated compounds, it was observed that compounds sharing the most similar position to flurbiprofen and meloxicam, representing the two main enzyme subdomains, achieved higher biological activity than others. Expand
Biological Evaluation and Molecular Docking Studies of Dimethylpyridine Derivatives
Biological evaluation of twelve different Schiff base derivatives of N-(2-hydrazine- 2-oxoethyl)-4,6-dimethyl-2-sulfanylpyridine- 3-carboxamide shows lower molar concentrations of these compounds inhibit the growth of cancer cells while not inhibiting the healthy cells, opening up the possibility of applying these compounds in the chemoprevention of cancer.

Objective: Cissus quadrangularis, a perennial plant of grape family is traditionally used as an herbal medicine for treating inflammation caused by hemorrhoids, gastric ulcer and bone disorders.Expand


Virtual screening for novel COX-2 inhibitors using the ZINC database
The screening of various compounds from the ZINC database is reported using the eHiTS (electronic High Throughput Screening) software tool against the COX-2 protein to identify structurally novel ligands that make similar interactions to those of known ligands or may have different interactions with other parts of the binding site. Expand
Novel cytotoxic chalcones from Litsea rubescens and Litsea pedunculata.
Two novel flavonoid with chalcone skeleton, together with seven known flavonoids, were isolated from the stem barks of Litsea rubescens and Litsea pedunculata and were found to contain the rare epoxy or ethylidenedioxy group. Expand
Effects of methanolic extract and fractions from Litsea cubeba bark on the production of inflammatory mediators in RAW264.7 cells.
Findings suggest that L. cubeba is beneficial for inflammatory conditions and may contain compound(s) with anti-inflammatory properties. Expand
