The anticonvulsant and anti-plasmid conjugation potential of Thymus vulgaris chemistry: An in vivo murine and in vitro study

Skalicka-Woźniak K, Walasek M, Aljarba TM, Stapleton P, Gibbons S, Xiao J, Łuszczki JJ Food and Chemical Toxicology, 2018 ABSTRACT: The high-performance counter-current chromatography was used for the efficient purification of single constituents from Thymus vulgaris essential oil. Mixtures of n-heptane, ethyl acetate, methanol, and water (5:2:5:2 and 4:1:4:1 v/v), allowed purification of eugenol, 1-octen-3-… Read more »

Anaesthetic Effects of Eugenol on Grass Shrimp (Palaemonetes sinensis) of Different Sizes at Different Concentrations and Temperatures

Li Y, She Q, Han Z, Sun N, Liu X, Li X Scientific Reports, 2018 ABSTRACT: Essential oil derivatives are widely used for anaesthetising aquatic animals. However, the effectiveness of anaesthesia often varies according to the anaesthetic agent, species, temperature, dosage, and interactions among these factors. This study evaluated the effects of eugenol on three… Read more »

Structure-activity modelling of essential oils, their components, and key molecular parameters and descriptors

Owen L, Laird K, Wilson PB Molecular and Cellular Probes, 2017 ABSTRACT: Many essential oil components are known to possess broad spectrum antimicrobial activity, including against antibiotic resistant bacteria. These compounds may be a useful source of new and novel antimicrobials. However, there is limited research on the structure-activity relationship (SAR) of essential oil compounds,… Read more »

Solid Lipid Nanoparticles (SLN) carrying Eugenia caryophyllata essential oil: The novel nanoparticulate systems with broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity

Fazly Bazzaz BS, Khameneh B, Namazi N, Iranshahi M, Davoodi D, Golmohammadzadeh S Letters in Applied Microbiology, 2018 ABSTRACT: In the present study, solid lipid nanoparticles containing Eugenia caryophyllata essential oil (SLN-EO) were prepared by high-shear homogenization and ultrasound methods, and used to eradicate pathogens. SLN formulations were evaluated for their size, zeta potential and… Read more »

Selected terpenes from leaves of Ocimum basilicum L. induce hemoglobin accumulation in human K562 cells

Giordana F, Nicola M, Valentina C, Torricelli P, Beninati S, Tagliati F, Mischiati C Fitoterapia, 2018 ABSTRACT: Re-expression of fetal hemoglobin (HbF) was proposed as a possible therapeutic strategy for β-haemoglobinopathies. Although several inducers of HbF were tested in clinical trials, only hydroxyurea (HU) received FDA approval. Despite it produced adequate HbF levels only in… Read more »

Essential oils of culinary herbs and spices display agonist and antagonist activities at human aryl hydrocarbon receptor AhR

Bartoňková I, Dvořák Z Food Chemistry & Toxicology ABSTRACT: Essential oils (EOs) of culinary herbs and spices are used to flavor, color and preserve foods and drinks. Dietary intake of EOs is significant, deserving an attention of toxicologists. We examined the effects of 31 EOs of culinary herbs and spices on the transcriptional activity of human… Read more »

Antifungal and Anti-Biofilm Activity of Essential Oil Active Components against Cryptococcus neoformans and Cryptococcus laurentii

Kumari P, Mishra R, Arora N, Chatrath A, Gangwar R, Roy P, Prasad R Frontiers in Microbiology, 2017 ABSTRACT: Cryptococcosis is an emerging and recalcitrant systemic infection occurring in immunocompromised patients. This invasive fungal infection is difficult to treat due to the ability of Cryptococcus neoformans and Cryptococcus laurentii to form biofilms resistant to standard antifungal treatment….
