Figures from this paper

Immunosuppressant discovery from Tripterygium wilfordii Hook f: the novel triptolide analog (5R)-5-hydroxytriptolide (LLDT-8)
TLDR
The preclinical evaluations with regard to autoimmune and inflammatory diseases are summarized and several examples both of naturally occurring compounds and their derivatives in TwHF are reviewed, and the candidate compounds described have been or are currently in clinical trials.
Onopordum illyricum L., a Mediterranean plant, as a source of anti HIV-1 compounds
TLDR
1,5-Dicaffeoylquinic acid, arctiin, onopordopicrin, and luteolin exhibited the most potent inhibition of the HIV-1 reverse transcriptase (RT) ribonuclease H (RNase H), an attractive target for the identification of new antiretroviral inhibitors.
ENDOPHYTIC ACTINOMYCETES: ISOLATION, IDENTIFICATION, AND IN VITRO SCREENING FOR BIOTECHNOLOGICALLY SIGNIFICANT COMPOUNDS
TLDR
Endophytic actinomycetes from five Asteraceae plants were isolated and evaluated for their bioactivities, and 36 of the 86 isolates were significantly bioactivity while 18 showed strong bioactivity.
SYMBIONT-PRODUCED BYROSTATINS: INVESTIGATION OF THEIR BIOSYNTHESIS AND EFFECTS ON HOST TARGET
TLDR
The marine bryozoan Bugula neritina is the source of the bioactive polyketide compounds, the bryostatins, and the ability of trans-ATs to discriminate between the modular ACPs and load them with thepolyketide extender units is studied.
