Disease relevance of Jasminum

  • When incubated with RBC suspension, all four epicatechin isomers purified from jasmine tea exhibited a strong protection for RBC membrane to hemolysis induced by 2,2'-azo-bis(2-amidinopropane) dihydrochloride (AAPH), an azo free radical initiator [1].

High impact information on Jasminum


Biological context of Jasminum

  • In order to investigate the mechanisms of the anticarcinogenic effect of Chinese tea on the development of esophageal tumors in rats induced by N-nitrosomethylbenzylamine, the alkylation of DNA in various organs was studied in rats treated with 2 varieties of Chinese tea, i.e. Fujian Oolong tea and Jasmine tea [6].

Associations of Jasminum with chemical compounds


Gene context of Jasminum

  • While both bromocriptine and jasmine flowers brought about a significant reduction in serum prolactin, the decrease was significantly greater with bromocriptine [12].
