Metabolomics studies of allelopathy: a review

ranging from processes of inhibition and stimulation of growth in neighbor plants to inhibition of seed germination. Metabolomics is a discipline integral that studies all the metabolites in a

New stigmasterol and long chain alcohol from Tinospora cordifolia

Two compounds were isolated and characterized from dichloromethane extract of Tinospora cordifolia. The compounds are known as 1-octacosnol (1) and stigmasta-5, 22, 25-triene-2, 3-diol (2). The

A simple and facile method for the synthesis of 1-octacosanol

An efficient synthetic method was developed for the preparation of 1-octacosanol (C28-alcohol) from commercially available lipid-based intermediates namely sebacic acid (decanedioic acid) and stearyl


An attempt was made to select an appropriate genotype that produces maximum amount of n-octacosanol from the plant Tinospora cordifolia Miers, widely used in the Indian system of medicine to improve immune system and the body resistance against infections.

Synthesis of 1-octacosanol and GC-C-IRMS discrimination of samples from different origin

The aim of this work was to search a convenient synthetic protocol for the preparation of 1-octacosanol in a gram scale and found a Wittig reaction between the octadecyltriphenylphosphonium ylide and the methyl 10-oxodecanoate to be suitable for a rapid generation of homologues.

Protective effects of octacosanol on 6-hydroxydopamine-induced Parkinsonism in rats via regulation of ProNGF and NGF signaling

The findings implicated that the anti-parkinsonism effects afforded by octacosanol might be mediated by its neuro-microenvironment improving potency through retrieving the ratios of proNGF:NGF and the respective receptors p75NTR:TrkA in vivo.

Dietary supplements for the prevention and treatment of coronary artery disease.

A growing body of literature exists for numerous supplements in the prevention of coronary artery disease, but much of these data are inconclusive and clinicians should become familiar with the extent and limitations of this literature so they may counsel their patients better.
