    Abstract Phenolic compounds are related to high biological activity, avoiding oxidation in food and human systems. Nutshells are by-products derived from the pecan nut processing that contain important amounts of phenols which biological activity must be studied. This research aimed to evaluate the antioxidant (DPPH, ABTS, FRAP and hemolysis) and anti-inflammatory activities of shell extracts from pecan nuts harvested during the crop production cycle 2018 and 2019, as well as the in vitro digestibility of their phenolic compounds, including flavonoids. Results showed that extracts from the crop production cycle 2018 obtained the highest yield, while those from… More > Graphic Abstract

    Anti-inflammatory activity of Ziziphus amole

    Romero-Castillo PA1, MC Pérez Amador Barron1, P Guevara Fefer1, V Muñoz Ocotero1, A Reyes Dorantes2, F Aguirre Garcia2, A Amaya Chavez3

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.82, pp. 75-80, 2013, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2013.82.075

    Abstract The search for new anti-inflammatory drugs with fewer side effects than those currently available in the market has recently attracted the interest of scientists. Medicinal plants might be a natural source of medicines. Such is the case with Ziziphus amole (Sessé & Moc.) M.C. Johnst. or corongoro, a plant species native to México. It is used in traditional medicine as an anti-inflammatory drug, a healing substance and an analgesic, and in the treatment of diarrhea, diabetes, asthma and hemorrhoids. The aim of this study was to evaluate the anti-inflammatory effect of Z. amole in the acute 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate… More >

    Vernonia patens Kunth, an Asteraceae species with phototoxic and pharmacological activity

    Pérez-Amador1 MC, V Muñoz Ocotero1, S Pérez Benitez1, F García Jiménez2

    Phyton-International Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol.77, pp. 275-282, 2008, DOI:10.32604/phyton.2008.77.275

    Abstract The presence of phototoxic compounds in stems and leaves of young plants of Vernonia patens Kunth was confirmed by TLC. These compounds were in smaller amounts in younger than in adult plants of this species. Only the stems presented specific activity of these compounds from the two study plant organs. It included characteristic UV bands at 200 and 300nm, and phototoxic activity against Bacillus subtilis (ATCC-6633). Stems and leaves of Vernonia patens also showed anti-inflammatory activity and bactericide potential. More >
