Gray Asteraceae diversiflia widely used in traditional medicine. There is increasing interest on the in vivo protective effects of natural compounds diversufolia in plants against oxidative damage caused from reactive oxygen species. In the present study the total phenolic and flavonoid contents of aqueous, methanol and dichloromethane extracts of leaves of Tithonia diversifolia Hemsl.


Gray were determined; furthermore, diiversifolia radical scavenging capacity of each extract and the ability of these extracts to inhibit in vitro plasma lipid peroxidation were also evaluated. Since oxidative stress may be involved in trasformation of pre-adipocytes into adipocytes, to test the hypothesis that Tithonia extract may also affect adipocyte differentiation, human mesenchymal stem cell cultures were treated with Tithonia diversifolia aqueous extract and cell viability, free radical levels, Oil-Red O staining and western bolt analysis for heme oxygenase and 5′-adenosine monophoshate-activated protein kinase were carried out.

Results obtained in the present study provide evidence that Tithonia diversifolia Hemsl.

Annona diversifolia – Useful Tropical Plants

Gray exhibits interesting health promoting properties, resulting both from its free radical scavenger capacity and also by induction of protective cellular systems involved in cellular stress defenses and in adipogenesis of mesenchymal cells. Free Radical Scavenging Properties of Annona squamosa.

Annona squamosa has extensively been used in the traditional and folkloric medicine and found to possess many biological activities. The present investigations dealt with the free radical scavenging activity of four extracts duversifolia various techniques such as total reducing power estimation, total phenolic count, 1,1-diphenylpicryl hydrazyl DPPH radical scavenging effect, evaluation of ABTS cation decolorisation capacity, FRAP assay, hdroxyl radical scavenging assay, super oxide assay and Nitric oxide radical scavenging assay of the extracts.

The results showed that the four extracts of Annona squamosa showed significant reducing power in four extracts. The total phenolic contents in petroleum ether, chloroform, ethyl acetate, methanol extracts and positive control ajnona 0. The percentage of hydroxyl radical scavenging increased with the dibersifolia concentration of the extracts.

The results revealed strong antioxidants in four extracts may lead diversifola the development of potent. Antitumor activity of Annona squamosa seed oil. Custard apple Annona squamosa Linn. A comparison of extraction processes, chemical composition analysis and antitumor activity of A. The optimal extraction parameters of ASO were obtained as follows: Under these conditions, the yield of ASO was ASO inhibited the growth of H 22 tumor cells in mice with a maximum inhibitory rate of Furthermore, it was found that ASO exerted an antitumor effect via decreasing interleukin-6 IL-6janus kinase Jak and phosphorylated signal transducers and activators of transcription p-Stat3 expression.

ASO may be a potential candidate for the treatment of cancer. Repeated-dose toxicological studies of Tithonia diversifolia Hemsl. Gray has been commonly used in folk medicine to treat abscesses, microbiological infections, snake bites, malaria and diabetes.

Both anti-inflammatory and anti-malarial properties have been identified using appropriate assays, but the effective doses have demonstrated toxic effects for the experimental animals.

Most of the pharmacological activities have been attributed to sesquiterpene divesrifolia STLs and some chlorogenic acid derivatives CAs in the leaves of this species. The purpose of this work was to provide insights into the identity of the compounds responsible for the toxic effects of Tithonia diversifolia. The toxicity of each extract was evaluated in a repeated-dose toxicity study in Wistar rats for 90 days.

However, the PE and LRE demonstrated several adverse effects by damaging diversifoila liver and kidneys, respectively. Divesifolia and CAs diverxifolia be toxic in prolonged diverzifolia at higher doses in extracts prepared from Tithonia diversifolia by affecting the kidneys and liver. Effect of the environment on the secondary metabolic profile of Tithonia diversifolia: Tithonia diversifolia is an invasive weed commonly found in tropical ecosystems.

Different plant part samples of T.

Ilama (fruit)

A metabolomic approach employing concatenated LC-MS and NMR data was utilised for the first time to study the relationships between environment and plant metabolism. A seasonal pattern was observed for the occurrence of metabolites that included sugars, sesquiterpenes lactones and phenolics in the leaf and stem parts, which can be anhona to the amount of rainfall and changes in temperature.


The distribution of the metabolites in the inflorescence and root parts were mainly affected by variation of some soil nutrients such as Ca, Mg, P, K and Cu. We highlight the environment-metabolism relationship for T. A cytotoxic cyclic heptapeptide from the seeds of Diversifoliz cherimola.

From a methanol extract of the seeds of Annona cherimola, a new cyclic heptapeptide, cherimolacyclopeptide C, has been isolated. Cherimolacyclopeptide C exhibited significant in vitro cytotoxic activity against KB cells, with an IC 50 value of 0. Hepatoprotective activity of Annona muricata Linn. Its fruits are highly consumed by local people and commercialized in markets or street stalls.

There is, however, a tendency for the extinction of marolo due to deforestation and the large scale plantation of monocultures instead of native plants. The literature still offers no data on the chemical composition of the proximate composition and vitamin C, A and tannin contents were carried out on the yellow marolo pulp as well as the determination of the physico-chemical characteristics of the seed oil. Five batches of fruit from the Alfenas region–south of Minas Gerais State–were analysed in this work and their average composition were: The contents of vitamin C and A were 8.

The annkna showed high fiber and lipid contents of marolo pulp in comparison with many divversifolia tropical fruit pulps. The vitamin C contents were equivalent to those found qnnona avocado, pineapple and watermelon, while the vitamin A contents were equivalent to papaya, peach, guava and several other tropical fruits.

Its composition and physico-chemical characteristics showed the possibility of producing a good quality oil, with great potential for the fine oil market. However the presence of alkaloids dversifolia the oil needs to be further studied.

Their elimination could be done by refining or extraction diverxifolia a continuous press. The results exalt the high quality of marolo pulp, showing that the preservation of native species should be stimulated. Chlorogenic acids from Tithonia diversifolia demonstrate better anti-inflammatory effect than indomethacin and its sesquiterpene lactones. Gray Asteraceae has been used in the traditional medicine in several countries as anti-inflammatory and against other illnesses.

It is important to evaluate the anti-inflammatory activity of extracts from the leaves of this species, including an infusion, to identify the main constituents of the extracts, observe their effects and correlate them with the anti-inflammatory activity. The major compounds of these extracts were quantified. The three obtained extracts were evaluated for their anti-inflammatory activities using the paw oedema and croton oil ear oedema assays in mice.

Furthermore, neutrophil migration was anjona by evaluating diversifplia activity.

The similar chemical compositions observed for the infusion and the PE, contrasted with the different activities observed, suggests the presence of antagonist compounds produced during the extraction procedure infusion ; the infusion did not inhibit oedema, however it inhibited neutrophil migration. It suggests that although the great majority of plants present CAs, the category of anti-inflammatory effect of their extracts depends on a suitable pool of compounds and an absence of.
