Thrombin is the key serine proteinase of the coagulation cascade and therefore a suitable target for inhibition of blood coagulation. A number of pharmacologically active secondary metabolites from mushrooms have already been isolated, thus providing the rationale for screening for new thrombin inhibitors in mushrooms. In this study, inhibitory activities of mushroom extracts on thrombin and trypsin were measured using the chromogenic substrates H-d-phenylalanine-l-pipecolyl-l-arginine… 

Bioactive Lipids Metabolites in Amanita Virosa

An extract of Amanita virosa considerably inhibited thrombin, but showed no inhibitory activity on trypsin, and constitutes a good starting material for the isolation of further compounds that are active againstThrombin.

Biological Activities of Wild Sparassis crispa Extracts

Findings suggest that Sparassis crispa may be a useful material for development of drugs and functional foods.

Hexane and Chloroform Fractions of Laetiporus sulphrueus var. miniatus Inhibit Thrombin-treated Matrix Metalloproteinase-2/9 Expression in Human Oral Squamous Carcinoma YD-10B Cells

Results support that thrombin induces tumor invasion through MMP-2/9 and suggest that the L. miniatus may act as an effective functional food, conferring anti-oxidative, anti-thrombotic and anti-cancer activities.

Detection of Biological Activities of Wild Mushroom Methanol Extracts

In this study, the biological activities of 33 kinds of wild mushroom methanol extracts were investigated. Boletellus elatus showed the greatest fibrinolytic activity (1.08 plasmin units/mL) in a

Identification and Characterization of Fibrinolytic Compound from Cornus officinalis S. et Z

Malic acid isolated from Cornus officinalis might have potential to be developed as ingredient for biofunctional foods to prevent cardiovascular diseases and HPLC analysis of the purified fibrinolytic compound showed retention time same as authentic malic acid.

Glycerolipids as Selective Thrombin Inhibitors from the Fungus Stereum Hirsutum

Docking studies suggest that some isolated compounds could bind to the thrombin active site in a similar manner as previously reported phosphonateThrombin inhibitors.

Novel trypsin inhibitors from the white rot fungus Abortiporus biennis. Partial purification and characterization

Novel trypsin inhibitors from the white rot fungus Abortiporus biennis were isolated, partially purified, and char- acterized, finding that the inhibitors are acidic proteins with remarkably high heat stability.

A novel alkaline protease with antiproliferative activity from fresh fruiting bodies of the toxic wild mushroom Amanita farinosa.

A novel protease with a molecular mass of 15 kDa was purified from fresh fruiting bodies of the wild mushroom Amanita farinosa and demonstrated a single 15-kDa band in sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS/PAGE) and a 15- kDa peak in gel filtration.

Effect of the Solvent Fractions of Zingiber officinale Roscoe against Thrombin- treated Tumor Invasion in Human Oral Squamous Carcinoma YD-10B Cells

The hexane fraction obtained from a Zingiber officinale Roscoe water extract is a promising therapeutic anti-invasive agent in oral cancer.

Marmorin, a new ribosome inactivating protein with antiproliferative and HIV-1 reverse transcriptase inhibitory activities from the mushroom Hypsizigus marmoreus

The isolate of marmorin, isolated from fresh fruiting bodies of the mushroom Hypsizigus marmoreus, was devoid of antifungal, protease, RNase, mitogenic, anti-mitogenic, nitric oxide-inducing, hemagglutinating, and trypsin inhibitory activities.



Effects of tannins from Geum japonicum on the catalytic activity of thrombin and factor Xa of blood coagulation cascade.

Bioassay-guided fractionation of the MeOH extract of the whole plant of Geum japonicum led to the isolation of seven known tannins that showed potent anticoagulant activity by significantly prolonging the clotting of rabbit plasma.

The inhibitory properties and primary structure of a novel serine proteinase inhibitor from the fruiting body of the basidiomycete, Lentinus edodes.

A novel proteinase inhibitor has been purified from the fruiting bodies of the edible mushroom, Lentinus edodes, by buffer extraction and affinity chromatography on immobilized anhydrotrypsin, and there is a rather striking similarity to the propeptide segment of a microbial serine proteinase, as well as to the N-terminal region of the mature enzyme.

Novel natural product 5,5-trans-lactone inhibitors of human alpha-thrombin: mechanism of action and structural studies.

High-throughput screening of methanolic extracts from the leaves of the plant Lantana camara identified potent inhibitors of human alpha-thrombin, which were shown to be 5,5-trans-fused cyclic

Screening of selected basidiomycetes for inhibitory activity on neutral endopeptidase (NEP) and angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE).

Aqueous extracts of 27 basidiomycetes were investigated for their ability to inhibit the activity of angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) and neutral endopeptidase (NEP). The extracts of 5 fungi

Thrombin inhibitors as antithrombotic agents: the importance of rapid inhibition.

Examination of kinetic data for thrombin inhibitors currently in clinical trials indicates that they possess this ideal profile of kinetic parameters and potent inhibition of activated protein C and plasmin could be tolerated providing the inhibited complex only forms slowly.

Cysteine proteinase inhibitors screening of fungal species growing in Slovenia

The results suggest that at least two fungi from all the samples examined might contain substances with inhibitory activity, and these substances are selected for further investigation.

Strategies and progress towards the ideal orally active thrombin inhibitor.

Two major optimization strategies could be identified to further improve leads of the first generation of thrombin inhibitors and maintain the highly basic P1 moiety and compensate for the decrease in inhibitory activity.

Potent noncovalent thrombin inhibitors that utilize the unique amino acid D-dicyclohexylalanine in the P3 position. Implications on oral bioavailability and antithrombotic efficacy.

It is found that in general with this series of thrombin inhibitors, increased lipophilicity and the associated increases in plasma protein binding have detrimental effects on 2X APTT values and subsequent performance in in vivo antithrombotic models.
