Pomegranate (Punica granatum) is a heath with abundant hydrolysable tannin in its peel. This study demonstrated that POMx (70% acetone extract of pomegranate peels) significantly reduced interleukin (IL)-1β-induced inducible nitric oxide synthase, cyclooxygenase-2, and matrix metalloproteinase-13 protein expression in primary rat chondrocytes (PRCs...

Acne is a common skin condition with sebum overproduction, hyperkeratosis, Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) and Staphylococcus aureus, and inflammation. Punica granatum (pomegranate) is well-known for its anti-inflammatory effects; however, few studies have discussed the anti-acne effects of pomegranate. In this study, we found that pomegranate e...

A series of six isopimarane-type diterpene glycosides, along with an eremophilane-type sesquiterpene, i.e., elaeicolasides A-C (1-3, resp.), 16-(α-D-mannopyranosyloxy)isopimar-7-en-19-oic acid (4), hymatoxin K (5), hymatoxin L (6), and elaeicolalactone (7), were isolated from the AcOEt extract of the fermented broth of Stilbohypoxylon elaeicola YMJ...

A new biflavonol glycoside, quercetin-3-O-β-D-glucopyranoside-(3'→O-3''')-quercetin-3-O-β-D-galactopyranoside (9), together with eight known compounds was isolated for the first time from the leaves of Machilus zuihoensis Hayata (Lauraceae). The structure of compound 9 was elucidated by various types of spectroscopic data analysis. Analysis of the...
Article
One new betaenone, theissenoic acid (1), together with three new acetogenins, theissenolactones A-C (2-4, resp.), were isolated from the fermented broth of Theissenia cinerea 89091602 isolated in Taiwan. The structures of 1-4 were elucidated by spectroscopic methods. Biological tests revealed that 3 and 4 exhibited moderate growth-inhibitory activi...
Article
The antioxidant and inhibitory activities of glucuronic acid (GluA) and its synthesized 1-methoxyl-6-glucuronic acid hydroxamate (GluA-NHOH) against semicarbazide-sensitive amine oxidase (SSAO) were investigated. The scavenging activities of GluA-NHOH against 2,2-diphenyl-1-picryl-hydrazyl-hydrate (DPPH) radicals (half-inhibition concentration [IC5...

The rhizome of Atractylodes ovata De Candolle is rich in essential oils, which are usually removed by processing. In this study, anti-oxidative abilities of essential oils and aqueous extracts of A. ovata rhizome were explored, and the influence of processing on the anti-oxidative abilities was examined. Essential oils and aqueous extracts of A. ov...

Inflammation can cause various physical dysfunctions. Punica granatum Linne (pomegranate), a high phenolic content fruit, is widely used as an antipyretic analgesic in Chinese culture. Pomegranate has shown potential nitric oxide (NO) inhibition in LPS-induced RAW 264.7 macrophage cells. Moreover, pomegranate (100 mg/kg) significantly decreased car...
