The objective of this study was to examine the biological activity of kaempferol and its rhamnosides. We isolated kaempferol (1), α-rhamnoisorobin (2), afzelin (3), and kaempferitrin (4) as pure compounds by far-infrared (FIR) irradiation of kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus L.) leaves. The depigmenting and anti-inflammatory activity of the compounds was evaluated by analyzing their structure-activity relationships. The order of the inhibitory activity with regard to depigmentation and nitric oxide… Expand
Topical Anti-Inflammatory Effects of Isorhamnetin Glycosides Isolated from Opuntia ficus-indica
TLDR
Both IGR and OFI extract significantly inhibited the COX-2, TNF-α, and IL-6 production. Expand
A new anti-inflammatory flavonoid glycoside from tetraena aegyptia
TLDR
The anti-inflammatory activity of compound 1 was demonstrated by qRT-PCR and ELISA assay, which revealed that compound 1 markedly reduced the mRNA expression of IL-6 and TNF-α. Expand
Anti-inflammatory activities of fractions from Geranium nepalense and related polyphenols.
TLDR
The results showed that ethyl acetate fraction of the water extract of G. nepalense possessed significant activity at 2.5 g/kg (p < 0.01) with aspirin as a positive control, and the isolation of polyphenols provides a clue for beneficial effects of G-nepalense in the demonstrated anti-inflammatory activity.

Structural Characterization and Assessment of Anti-Inflammatory and Anti-Tyrosinase Activities of Polyphenols from Melastoma normale
TLDR
The successful isolation and structure identification of ellagitannin provide materials for the screening of anti-inflammatory drugs and enzyme inhibitors, and also contribute to the development and utilization of M. normale. Expand
IN VIVO AND IN VITRO HEPATOPROTECTIVE POTENTIAL OF KAEMPFEROL, A FLAVONE GLYCOSIDE FROM CAPPARIS SPINOSA
This study was designed to investigate in-vivo and in-vitro hepatoprotective activity of kaempferol isolated from Capparis spinosa L. in CCl4 intoxicated rat. Kaempferol is a bioflavonoid reportedExpand
Bioactive compounds of Boesenbergia sp. and their anti-inflammatory mechanism: A review
Boesenbergia sp. (Zingiberaceae) has been empirically used in Indonesia, to treat rheumatism. The rhizome of Boesenbergia rotunda contains essential oils (nerol, camphor, cineole, fenchene,Expand
An Insight Into the Modulatory Effects and Mechanisms of Action of Phyllanthus Species and Their Bioactive Metabolites on the Immune System
TLDR
Extensive experimental and preclinical studies on the immunomodulating potential of Phyllanthus species should be carried out to provide sufficient data to prove that their traditional uses are inherently effective and safe and will allow clinical trials to be pursued for their further development as therapeutic agents to treat immune-related disorders.

Neuroprotective Properties of Kempferol Derivatives from Maesa membranacea against Oxidative Stress-Induced Cell Damage: An Association with Cathepsin D Inhibition and PI3K/Akt Activation
TLDR
The tested flavonols were not effective in counteracting doxorubicin-induced cytotoxicity and their caspase-3- and cathepsin D-inhibitory activities appeared to be structure dependent. Expand
A comparative proteomic study of secretomes in kaempferitrin-treated CTX TNA2 astrocytic cells.
TLDR
It was found that no pro-inflammatory cytokines or inhibitory ECM were elevated upon treatment of Kaempferitrin or a crude extract of C.O. leaves, suggesting that prolonged use of kaempfer itrin containing herbs may not increase pro- inflammatory reaction. Expand
A novel limonin derivate modulates inflammatory response by suppressing the TLR4/NF-κB signalling pathway.
TLDR
This study showed that V-A-4 does not exert anti-inflammatory effect through the inhibition of COX-1 orCOX-2, Rather, it is exerted through the suppression of the secretion of nitric oxide and tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), as well as through the infiltration of inflammatory cells. Expand

Flavonol glycosides from Muehlenbeckia platyclada and their anti-inflammatory activity.
TLDR
A new flavonol, morin-3-O-alpha-rhamnopyranoside, along with four known flavonols, were isolated from the methanolic extract of Muehlenbeckia platyclada and were 15-fold more potent than phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride (PMSF), the positive control, in this anti-inflammatory assay. Expand

Inhibitory Effects of Coptis japonica Alkaloids on the LPS-Induced Activation of BV2 Microglial Cells
TLDR
The anti-inflammatory effect of palmatine in LPS-stimulated microglia may suggest the potential use of the alkaloids in the modulation of neuroinflammatory responses, which might be important in the pathophysiological events of several neurological diseases including Alzheimer`s disease (AD), multiple sclerosis (MS), Parkinson's disease (PD) and stroke.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that FIR irradiation can be used as a convenient tool for deglycosylation of flavonoid glycoside and the inhibitory activity may be due to the existence of derhamnosylation products. Expand
Structure-activity relationships for antioxidant activities of a series of flavonoids in a liposomal system.
TLDR
All the flavonoids tested exhibited higher antioxidant efficacies against metal-ion- induced peroxidations than peroxyl-radical-induced peroxidation, suggesting that metal chelation may play a larger role in determining the antioxidant activities of these compounds than has previously been believed.

Inhibitory effect of p-hydroxybenzyl alcohol on tyrosinase activity and melanogenesis.
TLDR
P-hydroxybenzyl alcohol (4HBA) was found to inhibit the monophenolase activity of mushroom tyrosinase, and showed that 4HBA is a promising and safe agent for skin whitening. Expand
Antioxidant capacity of some herbs/spices from cameroon: a comparative study of two methods.
