High impact information on Violaceae

  • Cyclotides, a family of approximately 50 mini-proteins isolated from various Violaceae and Rubiaceae plants, are characterized by their circular peptide backbone and six conserved cysteine residues arranged in a cystine knot motif [1].
  • Hypa A, a novel macrocyclic polypeptide containing 30 amino acid residues, has been isolated from the n-butanol extract of the Argentine plant Hybanthus parviflorus [2].
  • The best inhibition of the growth of Plasmodium falciparum resistant K1 strain was observed with the methylene chloride extract of Hybanthus enneaspermus and with the methanolic extract of Croton lobatus roots (IC50=2.57 and 2.80 microg/ml, respectively) [3].
  • The anti-inflammatory activity of Ionidium suffruticosam (Violaceae) methanol extract was evaluated on carrageenin, histamine and serotonin-induced rat hind paw oedema acute models [4].
  • Evaluation of antitussive potential of Ionidium suffruticosam Ging. (Violaceae) extract in albino mice [5].
