Natural Bioactive Compounds from Fruits and Vegetables as Health Promoters Part II Book Excerpt:

Plants have been widely used to treat diseases, owing to the presence of bioactive compounds (phytochemicals) which play important roles in health promotion and disease prevention. In recent years, advances in chemical extraction techniques, lifestyle and dietary choices for human health have increased the interest in the consumption and study of fruits, vegetables, and foods enriched with bioactive compounds and nutraceuticals. Thousands of dietary phytochemicals, such as flavonoids, phenolic acids, glucosinolates, terpenes and alkaloids, have been identified and categorized further according to a diverse array of biochemical properties. Many of these phytochemicals have been hypothesized to reduce the risk of several pathological conditions which include life threatening diseases such as heart disease and cancer, to name a few. Natural Bioactive Compounds from Fruits and Vegetables as Health Promoters is a 2 book set which presents a summary of different classes of phytochemicals commonly found in common edible food sources. Each chapter details the general chemical structures of compounds, naturally present in specific fruits, vegetables and grains, their biological importance and mechanisms of action. The book set is an essential handbook for anyone interested in the natural product chemistry of these common crops. Part 1 of this set covers details about different fruits (banana, citrus fruits, pears, etc.). Part 2 covers legumes, nuts, seeds and cereals.

The Search for Biological Active Agent s From Actinobacteria 2nd Edition Book Excerpt:

There is a large market demand for new drugs. The existing chronic or common ailments without cures, development of new diseases with unknown causes, and the widespread existence of antibiotic-resistant pathogens, have driven this field of research further by looking at all potential sources of natural products. To date, microbes have made a significant contribution to the health and well-being of people globally. The discoveries of useful metabolites produced by microbes have resulted in a significant proportion of pharmaceutical products in today’s market. Therefore, the investigation and identification of bioactive compound(s) producing microbes is always of great interest to researchers. Actinobacteria are one of the most important and efficient groups of natural metabolite producers. Among the numerous genera, Streptomyces have been recognized as prolific producers of useful natural compounds, as they provide more than half of the naturally-occurring antibiotics isolated to-date and continue to emerge as the primary source of new bioactive compounds. Certainly, these potentials have attracted ample research interest and a wide range of biological activities have been subsequently screened by researchers with the utilization of different In vitro and In vivo model of experiments. Literature evidence has shown that a significant number of interesting compounds produced by Actinobacteria were exhibiting either strong anticancer or neuroprotective activity. The further in depth studies have then established the modulation of apoptotic pathway was involved in those observed bioactivities. These findings indirectly prove the biopharmaceutical potential possessed by Actinobacteria and at the same time substantiate the importance of diverse pharmaceutical evaluations on Actinobacteria. In fact, many novel compounds discovered from Actinobacteria with strong potential in clinical applications have been developed into new drugs by pharmaceutical companies. Together with the advancement in science and technology, it is predicted that there would be an expedition in discoveries of new bioactive compounds producing Actinobacteria from various sources, including soil and marine sources. In light of these current needs, and great interest in the scope of this research, this book seeks to contribute on the investigation of different biological active compound(s) producing actinobacteria which are exhibiting antimicrobial, antioxidant, neuroprotective, anticancer activities and similar.

Synthesis and Characterization of Bioactive Molecules Derived from Terminal Alkynes Book Excerpt:

Chapter 1: Terminal alkyne: a versatile synthon for the synthesis of bioactive molecules 1.1 Introduction 1.1.1 History of alkynes Alkynes are one of the fundamental functional groups that established the foundation of organic chemistry.' The smallest member of this famil y, acetyle ne, was first discovered in 1836 by Edmund Davy.2 In 1862, Friedrich Wohler discovered the generation of acetylene from the hydrolysis of calcium carbide (Scheme 1). CaC2 + H2O - H - H + Ca(OH)2 Scheme 1. Acetylene produced by this reaction was the main source of organic chemicals in the coal-based chemical industries. When petroleum was replaced by coal as the chief source of carbon in the 1950s, the partial combustion of methane became the prevale nt industrial manufacture processes for acetylene (Scheme 2). 2CH4 + (3/2)02 ----- H _ H + 3H2O Scheme 2. According to Ferdinand Bohlm ann, the first naturally occurring acetylenic compound, dehydromatricaria ester 1 was isolated from an Artemisia species in 1826. 3 Over a thousand naturally occurring acetylenes have been discovered and reported in 19 th and 20th centuries. 4 Polyynes, a subset of this class of natural products, have been isolated from a wide variety of plant species, 4 cultures of higher fung i,5 bacteria, marine sponges, and cora ls .6 In addition, dihydromatricaria acid 2 is the unique example of a polyyne obtained from an insect, the soldier beetle.7 At present over I 000 compounds with two or more conjugated C=C bonds have been isol ated. 8 These compounds represent a distinctive class of compounds with a significant array of biological act ivities, such as antibacterial, antimicrob ia l, antifungal, antitumor, anticancer, anti- HIV and pesticidal properties .9 2 Figure 1.
