IDENTIFICATION OF ENDEMIC CURCUMA ALBIFLORA THW. FROM CURCUMA SPECIES GROWN IN SRI LANKA BY DNA BARCODING METHOD

Curcuma is an important genus in traditional medicine. Five plants are reported in Sri Lanka; C. albiflora, C. aromatica, C. longa, C. zedoaria, and C. oligantha. Since the phylogenetic analysis of gene sequences and combining with complete genomic sequences helps to identify the genetic basis of plants, the current study was conducted. Standard CTAB method with little modifications was used for t...

SYNTHESIS, CHARACTERIZATION, ANTIOXIDANT AND ANTI-INFLAMMATORY ACTIVITY EVALUATION OF SOME SUBSTITUTED PYRAZOLE DERIVATIVES

A series of substituted acetophenones are condensed with hydrazides to the corresponding hydrazones which are subsequently cyclized by using volumizer-Haack reaction to give new pyrazole derivatives. All the compounds 4a, 4b, 4c, 4d, 4e were screened for antioxidant, anti-inflammatory activity. Few of the compounds showing good antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity....

THROMBOLYTIC AND MEMBRANE STABILIZING ACTIVITIES OF LAUNAEA SARMENTOSA

This study was carried out to evaluate the thrombolytic and membrane stabilizing activities of Launaea sarmentosa plants. The crude methanolic extract of L. sarmentosa (whole plants) was investigated for in-vitro thrombolytic and membrane stabilizing activities at five different concentrations of 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 mg/ml respectively. In the case of thrombolytic study, it was dose-dependently incre...
