High impact information on Polygonaceae

  • Quercetin 3-O-beta-(2''-galloyl)-rhamnopyranoside (QGR) is a naturally occurring quercitrin gallate, a polyphenolic compound isolated from Persicaria lapathifolia (Polygonaceae) [1].
  • A cDNA corresponding to 1-Cys peroxiredoxin, an evolutionarily conserved thiol-specific antioxidant enzyme, was isolated from buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum Moench), a dicotyledonous plant species belonging to the Polygonaceae family [2].
  • Two stilbene glycosides, pieceid-2"-O-gallate and pieceid-2"-O-coumarate, were isolated from the MeOH extract of the roots of Pleuropterus ciliinervis Nakai (Polygonaceae), together with two known compounds, resveratrol and pieceid [3].
  • A pure anthelmintic substance (PGA) has been isolated from the methanol-aqueous extract of the leaf of Polygonum glabrum Willd., a semi-aquatic Sudanese species of the family Polygonaceae [4].
  • (Family - Polygonaceae) was assessed for different psychopharmacological activities in rats and mice by evaluation of general behaviour, exploratory behaviour, muscle relaxant activity and phenobarbitone sodium-induced sleeping time [5].
