Flavanoid biosynthesis in Camellia sinensis - UPSpace

Antioxidant and/or anti-inflammatory agents such as thiol molecules (glutathione and mucolytic drugs, such as N-acetyl-L-cysteine and N-acystelyn), dietary polyphenol (curcumin -diferuloylmethane, a principal component of turmeric), resveratrol (a flavanoid found in red wine), green tea (theophylline and epigallocatechin-3- gallate), ergothioneine (xanthine and peroxynitrite inhibitor), quercetin, erdosteine and carbocysteine lysine salt, have been reported to control NF-kappaB activation, regulation of glutathione biosynthesis genes, chromatin remodeling and hence inflammatory gene expression.

(2012) Transition State Study of Cyclization Step in Peptide Catalyzed Flavanone Synthesis.

Synthesis of Chalcone and Flavanone Compound Using …

Inhibition of DENV2 protease activities by two classes of natural products, the flavanones and chalcone extracted from an Asian fingerroot has been reported in an earlier study (). The bioactive natural products from the study are used as a template to design and synthesis new compounds that could possess inhibitory property toward dengue virus infection. The antiviral activity of these synthesized compounds was established in this study employing the cell culture system which reflects the virus-host interaction toward any effectors.

General procedure for synthesis of Flavanones and Aryl chalcones by microwave: 2.5 mmole of Hetero Aldehyde/Aryl Aldehyde and 2.5 mmole of 2-hydroxy-4-substituted acetophenone were taken in 250ml RBF. 20 ml Ethanol and 0.1 mole of Potassium hydroxide were added in same RBF. The RBF was kept in Microwave at low voltage for 2-8 min. The reaction was moniterd by TLC. Ethanol was evaporated and solid washed with cold water. Recrystallized from Methanol.

ChemInform Abstract: Synthesis and Antioxidant Activity …

ABSTRACT: Flavanoids are plant secondary metabolites, synthesized by microwave assisted synthesis and green chemistry approach since, the conventional method of synthesis uses various organic solvents, hazardous by product, tedious work that requires more reaction time. Flavonoids have general structure of 15-carbon skeleton which consists of two phenyl ring (A and B) and heterocyclic pyran ring(C). Flavones are one of the important class of flavanoids acquires a broad spectrum of activity. Chalcone (1, 3-diaryl-2-propen-1-ones), is a privileged structure, demonstrating promising anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and anticancer activities. The basic moiety of flavanoids gives numerous biological activities henceforth; flavanoid and chalcone derivatives were synthesized and confirmed by physiochemical and spectral data. Biological screening was done for antibacterial especially for anti-methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus and antifungal screening with using standard drug Ofloxacin and Griseofulvin respectively. Compound NKP-3, NKP-4, NKP-8a, NKP- 9a and NKP-10a are more active and other compounds are less active against bacteria and fungi.

This comparatively lower risk among Kuna in the San Blas from the most common causes of morbidity and mortality in much of the world, possibly reflects a very high flavanol intake and sustained nitric oxide synthesis activation.

First Total Synthesis of Five Natural Prenylated …

RESULT AND DISCUSSION: The objective of the present work was to synthesis and biological evaluation of some new flavonoids associated with Flavanone and Chalcone derivatives. The yield of different synthesized compounds was founds to be in the range of 40-70% and the characterization was done by melting point and TLC. Characteristic IR bands show several functional vibrational modes which confirm the completion of reaction. New moieties structures were confirmed by 1H NMR and Mass spectral studies. The antibacterial activity and antifungal of new derivatives showed activity against S. aureus and C. albicans strain. Compound was found most active as antibacterial and antifungal activities which suggest that a 7- Methoxy derivatives show more activity against bacteria and fungi.

4',6-Dicyanoflavan (DCF), a new antirhinovirus compound, was shown to inhibit an early event of rhinovirus type 1B replication in HeLa cells. When DCF was present from the beginning of infection or was added no later than the first hour of infection, the compound completely prevented viral RNA and protein synthesis and the virus-induced shutoff of host translation. DCF had no adverse effect either on virus binding to the cell membrane or on virus penetration into cells, whereas it delayed the uncoating kinetics of neutral redencapsidated rhinovirus. DCF also prevented mild acid or thermal inactivation of virus infectivity, although it reversibly interacted with virions. These results suggest that the stabilizing effect of DCF on virion capsid conformation is responsible for uncoating inhibition.
