Renealmia alpinia

Abstract Renealmia renealmia alpinia Zingiberaceaea medicinal plant of tropical rainforests, is used to treat snakebites and other injuries and also as a febrifuge, analgesic, antiemetic, antiulcer, and anticonvulsant.

The dichloromethane extract of R.

Kinetic analysis of inhibition and equilibrium-dialysis dissociation assay of the enzyme-inhibitor complex showed reversible binding of desmethoxyyangonin 6 with MAO-A and MAO-B. Introduction Renealmia alpinia Renealmia genus Zingiberaceae belongs to the rare class of amphi-Atlantic plants well represented in tropical Africa and Americas [ 12 ].

Several Renealmia species have been used for folk medicine and food on both sides of the Atlantic. Renealmia alpinia of fruits from R.

In the Americas, several species of Renealmia have been reported to treat different diseases [ 5 ].

Renealmia alpinia - Wikipedia

The crushed stem or infusion of R. Edible fruits of R. They highlighted the use of R. Moreover, renealmia alpinia aqueous extracts of R. Pinostrobin, the main bioactive constituent, showed inhibitory effects on the enzymatic, anticoagulant, myotoxic, and edema inducing activities of phospholipase A2 PLA2 isolated from Crotalus durissus renealmia alpinia [ 12 ].

renealmia alpinia Additionally, the extracts of R. Pinostrobin was found to be the bioactive component in the extract responsible for this effect [ 13 ].

Renealmia alpinia

Recently, we explored the antinociceptive effects of methanol renealmia alpinia aqueous extracts of R. Comprehensive phytochemical analysis of R. This was the renealmia alpinia report on the isolation of compound 6 from a Renealmia species [ 15 ].

Chemical structures of Renealmia alpinia constituents.


Dichloromethane extract of R. Binding interactions of desmethoxyyangonin 6, the most prominent MAO inhibitory constituent in R.

These studies may have implications for future research and scientifically validate traditional use of Renealmia alpinia. Materials and Methods 2.

Previous to assay, to verify the stability of compounds 1—6, the spectrometric and spectroscopic analysis was done. No degradation products were detected. The dichloromethane extract 0. MAO-A and MAO-B activities renealmia alpinia determined by fluorometric kynuramine deamination assay set up in well solid white flat-bottom plates [ 20 ].

MAO-A and MAO-B inhibition activities IC50 values were determined using fixed concentration of the substrate kynuramine and varying renealmia alpinia of the test compounds or extracts.
