Gerbera anandria (Compositae) was extracted with 75% ethanol and the residue was fractionated using light petroleum, chloroform and ethyl acetate. The constituents of the extracts were separated by column chromatography employing solvents of different polarity. Column chromatography of the light petroleum fraction resulted in the isolation of methyl hexadecanoate, while the chloroform fraction afforded xanthotoxin, 2-hydroxy-6-methylbenzoic acid, 7-hydroxy-1(3H)-isobenzofuranone, a mixture of β-sitosterol and stigmasterol, and 8-methoxysmyrindiol and the ethyl acetate fraction gave gerberinside, apigenin-7-O-β-d-glucopyranoside and quercetin. A new coumarin, 8-methoxysmyrindiol, was found. The chemical structures of the isolated compounds were established by MS and NMR (HSQC, HMBC). Free radical scavenging and cytotoxic activities of crude extracts and 8-methoxysmyrindiol were further investigated. The ethyl acetate phase exerted the strongest DPPH free radical scavenging activity in comparison to the other fractions. The coumarin 8-methoxysmyrindiol demonstrated cytotoxicity against multiple human cancer cell lines, with the highest potency in HepG2 cells.

Abstract Introduction PrestoBlue (PB) is a new, simple and extremely fast live assay to monitor cell viability and cytotoxicity. Herein, we compared two in vitro cytotoxicity assays, new (PB) and classic (MTT), in the assessment of viability of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) in the presence of selected plant extracts. Methods The anti-proliferative effects of two extracts from medicinal plants, i.e., walnut husk extract and spent hop extract, used at the concentration range of 1...

Abstract A series of N -hydroxycinnamoyl amides of fluorinated amino acids were synthesized. Their antioxidant activity was determined using the rapid DPPH test and the activity was compared to that of non-fluorinated analogs and standard antioxidants. Results on the antiradical properties obtained by Nenadis’ method, indicate that fluorine slightly increased the radical scavenging activity of three of the studied amides. Among the tested compounds, sinapic acid (the standard) was the most poten...

Abstract A new microplate-adapted DPPH rapid assay was developed to assess the antioxidant capacity of pure compounds and foods. The assay was carried out in buffered medium (methanol: 10 mmol/l Tris buffer pH 7.5, 1:1 v/v) and reaction was completed at 10 min. The scavenging capacity index (SCI), a theoretical antioxidant parameter directly related to the antioxidant capacity of samples, was calculated. SCI for pure compounds: gallic acid (6.76 ± 0.08), quercetin (7.89 ± 0.24), catechin (6.05 ±...

Abstract Two organic cocrystals namely, caffeine:cinnamic acid [(caf)(ca)] (1) and caffeine:eosin dihydrate [(caf)(eos)]·2H2O (2) were synthesized and studied by FT-IR, TGA/DTA, and single crystal XRD. The crystal system of cocrystal 1 is triclinic with space group P-1 and Z = 2 and that of cocrystal 2 is monoclinic with space group P21/C and Z = 4. An imidazole–carboxylic acid synthon is observed in the cocrystal 1. The intermolecular hydrogen bond, O–H⋯N and π–π interactions play a major role ...

Abstract We established the 3-(4,5-Dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay to assess damage induced by Staphylococcus aureus in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs). The MTT assay was comparable to the previously published 51 chromium release assay. MTT reduction by intracellular S. aureus was negligible and therefore permits assessment of S. aureus induced EC damage.

Abstract It is difficult task to measure precisely the toxic effect of beta-amyloid (Aβ 1–42) peptides and also the protective effect of novel drug candidates against Aβ-peptides. The widely used MTT-assay in cell lines or primary cell cultures could be insensitive against Aβ-peptides. We describe here an easy and relevant method for testing Aβ 1–42 toxicity on acute hippocampal slices derived from rat. Brain slice viability in different conditions was measured using MTT and LDH assays. The conc...

Crude ethyl acetate extract of Gerbera piloselloides (L.) Cass. was investigated by dual high-resolution PTP1B/α-glucosidase inhibition profiling and LC-PDA-HRMS. This indicated the presence of a series of unprecedented prenyl- and geranyl-substituted coumarin derivatives correlated with both α-glucosidase and PTP1B inhibitory activity. Repeated chromatographic separation targeting these compounds led to the isolation of 13 new compounds, of which ten could be isolated as both enantiomers after ...

Coumarins are the seconder metabolites of some plants, fungi, and bacteria. Coumarins and the hybrid molecules of coumarins are the compounds which have been widely studied for their anticancer effects. They belong to benzopyrone chemical class, more precisely benzo-alpha-pyrones, where benzene ring is fused to pyrone ring. In nature, coumarins are found in higher plants like Rutaceae and Umbelliferae and some essential oils like cinnamon bark oil, cassia leaf oil and lavender oil are also rich ...

Abstract The crude extract and some Chinese patented medicines of Leonurus japonicus Houtt. have been proven to affect the uterine smooth muscle. L. japonicus injection is widely used in obstetric departments in China for treating postpartum hemorrhage caused by uterine inertia. Bioassay-guided isolation of the 95% EtOH extract of L. japonicus yielded four cyclopeptides, nine alkaloids, and three flavonoid glycosides, including two previously undescribed cyclopeptides, namely, cycloleonuripeptid...
