1. Drimys brasiliensis species, flowering plants. The traditional use of Drimys brasiliensis Miers (Winteraceae) in the south of Brazil to reduce cholesterol has not been described in scientific. The essential oils obtained from Southern Brazilian native Drimys brasiliensis Miers and Drimys angustifolia Miers were analyzed by GC and GC/MS. The oils.

Seventy-five fractions of mL each were collected. Weeds are adaptable to different habitats and often brasilienssi with crops by taking advantage of the favorable conditions that occur in agricultural systems. Conjoint analyses for growth bioassay The conjoint analysis allows for the comparison of the D. From subfractions eluted with a 6: Cardiovascular diseases are a major public health concern worldwide and are the main cause of mortality with high treatment costs.

Previous reports have suggested that toxicity levels vary depending on the plant organ used during the extraction. The phytotoxic activity of D. The seedlings treated with the AcOEt fraction displayed lower shoot Consequently, the importance of ethnopharmacology drimye the development of drugs has once more been proven.

How and why to measure the germination process? Inhibition of cell proliferation and DNA synthesis in the root apical meristem of Brassica campestris seedlings. Stunning photographs of each species, brief details on the plant, its uses and how to grow it from seed. The experimental design was completely randomized and contained four replicates of 10 seedlings.


High-performance liquid chromatography; PDA: Susana Dreveck Flowers and leaves Photograph by: To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study to report the presence of rutin and monomer precursors of condensed tannins catechin and epicatechin in D.

Close-up of the flower Photograph by: Mechanisms responsible for this pharmacological effect possibly are related to the scavenging of free radicals as demonstrated in vitro. Thus, this is the first study to report that D. America – Argentina, southern and eastern Brazil.

Drimys brasiliensis

Drimane sesquiterpenes[ 23 ] were isolated from the aerial parts of D. Values for the hexane fraction root extract treated seedlings could not be obtained for the 0. From this solution, dilutions of 0. The potential antioxidant effect of D.

Anti-lipid Potential of Drimys brasiliensis

For the variables that showed no significant differences between treatments, the results were presented in tables. The initial screening revealed plasmodicidal activity only for the chloroform extract of the stem bark, which produced an IC 50 value of 3.

Thus, species of Drimys are promising in the search for phytochemicals capable of acting as natural herbicides. The data were tested for normality Shapiro-Wilk and homogeneity Levene. Btasiliensis have low or no toxicity to animals and beneficial insects and possess an array of activities with varying and diverse sites of action. Bioassays were conducted in Petri dishes 9 cm in diameter containing two brasiliendis of filter paper moistened with 5 mL of either the sample fractions or the negative control solution.

The antioxidant activity is directly related to the chemical composition of the extract where monomers of condensed tannins, flavonoid, and phenolic acids were detected.

The hexane fraction from Braslliensis. For the germination and growth bioassays, the linear or quadratic regression models were adjusted when the ANOVA F statistic was significant.

Cold Spring Harbor Perspectives in Biology, grasiliensis. Brazilian plants as possible adaptogens: The acute toxicity of essential oils of D. ABSTRACT This study aims to evaluate the phytotoxicity potential of leaf and root extracts of Drimys brasiliensis on the germination and seedling growth of Panicum maximum and Euphorbia brasiliensiss and its influence on metaxylem cell size in the seedling roots of the latter specie.

Allelopathic effects of aqueous extracts of Aristolochia esperanzae O. Four primary roots of E.
