snakebites and ethnobotany in the northwest region of colombia. part iii: neutralization of the haemorrhagic effect of bothrops atrox venom.thirty-one of 75 extracts of plants used by traditional healers for snakebites, had moderate or high neutralizing ability against the haemorrhagic effect of bothrops atrox venom from antioquia and chocó, north-western colombia. after preincubation of several doses of every extract (7.8-4000 microg/mouse) with six minimum haemorrhagic doses (10 microg) of venom, 12 of them demonstrated 100% neutralizing capacity when the mixture was i.d. injected into mice (18-20 g). these were the stem barks of ...200011025161
bioactive iridoids and a new lignan from allamanda cathartica and himatanthus fallax from the suriname rainforest.bioassay-guided fractionation of the etoac extract of both allamanda cathartica and himatanthus fallax (apocynaceae) using the sc-7 yeast strain resulted in the isolation of the weakly cytotoxic isoplumericin and plumericin. in addition, the new lignan 7(r)-methoxy-8-epi-matairesional and three known compounds, plumieride, matairesinol, and pinoresinol, were isolated from h. fallax.19979428163
comparative analysis of the properties of acid-base indicator of rose (rosa setigera), allamanda (allamanda cathartica), and hibiscus (hibiscus rosa-sinensis) flowers.the need to develop effective alternative for synthetic indicators is the demand of present-day chemistry. the acid-base indicator properties of rose (rosa setigera), allamanda (allamanda cathartica), and hibiscus (hibiscus rosa-sinensis) flowers were examined. colour pigments were extracted from the flowers via cold and solvent extraction using soxhlet extractor. the ph value of the extracts with wavelengths of absorption was determined using ultraviolet spectrophotometer. from the results obta ...201526819757
effects of changes in micro-weather conditions on structural features, total protein and carbohydrate content in leaves of the atlantic rain forest tree golden trumpet (tabebuia chrysotricha).golden trumpet, tabebuia chrysotricha, is a native tree from the brazilian atlantic rain forest, with a broad latitudinal distribution. in this study, we investigated the potential effects of short-term changes in micro-weather conditions on structural features, and total protein and carbohydrate content of golden trumpet leaves, using structural and histochemical approaches. leaves were harvested in four different micro-weather conditions: 1. afternoon, after a hot, sunny day; 2. at dawn, after ...201627783764
molecular characterization of phytoplasmas of 'clover proliferation' group associated with three ornamental plant species in india.suspected phytoplasma symptoms of little leaf, yellowing, chlorosis, phyllody, witches' broom, and stunting were observed on ten different ornamental plant species at new delhi, andhra pradesh, haryana, bengaluru, and pune, india, during march to july 2016. to investigate the possibility of phytoplasma etiology, pcr assays were performed using universal primer pairs (p1/p7 followed by 3far/3rev) specific to the phytoplasma 16sr rna gene. first round pcr amplification with primer pair p1/p7 did n ...201628330309
