Anticholinesterase and antioxidant potentials of Nonea micrantha Bioss. & Reut along with GC-MS analysis
TLDR
The GC/Ms analysis confirmed that the N. micrantha is rich in bioactive molecules and isolation of natural bioactive compounds from this plant may lead to novel drug candidates against neurodegenerative disorders.
Efficacy of knockdown insecticide based on Permot (Passiflora foetida L.) leaf extract against mortality of German cockroach (Blattella germanica L.)
TLDR
The study's findings indicated that when cockroaches were exposed to insecticides derived from Permot leaves at a dose of 4000 ppm, the knockdown efficacy was KT50 for 8 min and KT90 for 30 min, and the blocking test on German cockroach Spiracles established that exposure via cockroach spiracles was more effective than exposure via other cockroach organs in killing.
Bio-guided profiling and HPLC-DAD finger printing of Atriplex lasiantha Boiss
