  • Determination of Ursolic and Oleanolic Acid in Sambuci Fructus
    • Abstract: Elderberries are used in the preparation of pie, jelly, punch, wine, or liqueur, as well as in many herbal remedies and food supplements. Elderberry products may provide diaphoretic, diuretic, antioxidant, and immunostimulant activities that offer protection against cold and flu. Herein, we report for the first time the qualitative and quantitative evaluation of two isomeric triterpenoids isolated from Sambuci fructus. The analysis revealed that ursolic acid and oleanolic acid are present in Sambuci fructus. The average concentration of ursolic acid was ca. three times higher than the concentration of oleanolic acid. The triterpenoids were detected and quantified using chromatographic methods such as TLC and HPLC. Spectroscopic techniques, including HR‐MS and 2D‐NMR, allowed unequivocal structure determination.
  • Essential‐Oil Composition of the Fruits of Six Heracleum L. Species
           from Iran: Chemotaxonomic Significance
    • Abstract: The fruit essential oils of Heracleum persicum, H. rechingeri, H. gorganicum, H. rawianum, H. pastinacifolium, and H. anisactis from Iran were obtained by hydrodistillation and characterized by GC‐FID and GC/MS analyses. The oils of the six species were compared to determine the similarities and differences among their compositions. Overall, 36 compounds were identified in the fruit oils, accounting for 92.40–96.74% of the total oil compositions. Aliphatic esters constituted the main fraction of the oils (86.61–94.31%), with octyl acetate and hexyl butyrate as the major components. The oil compositions of species belonging to section Pubescentia (H. persicum, H. gorganicum, and H. rechingeri) were discriminated by equally high contents of both octyl acetate (13.84–20.48%) and hexyl butyrate (17.73–38.36%). On the other hand, the oils of H. rawianum, H. pastinacifolium and H. anisactis, belonging to section Wendia, showed lower hexyl butyrate contents (3.62–6.6%) and higher octyl acetate contents (48.71–75.36%) than the former. Moreover, isoelemicin was identified at low amounts (0.10–2.51%) only in the oils of the latter species. The differences in the oil composition among the six species were investigated by hierarchical cluster and principal component analyses, which indicated that the oil composition confirmed well the taxonomical classification based on the morphological and botanical data, and, thus, may provide a reliable marker to discriminate Heracleum species at the intersectional level.

  • Chemical Composition and Antimicrobial Activity of the Essential Oil of
           Ruta chalepensis L. Growing Wild in Lebanon
    • Abstract: The essential oils (EOs) isolated from the fresh aerial parts of Ruta chalepensis L. collected in North Lebanon were obtained by solvent‐free microwave extraction (Milestone®), yielding 0.12% EO from both the leaves and a mixture of stems and leaves. The EOs were characterized by GC/MS analysis, and 27 components were identified, which were primarily ketones (88.0–93.2%). The main components were nonan‐2‐one and undecan‐2‐one. The antimicrobial activity of the EOs against a Gram‐positive and a Gram‐negative bacterium, a yeast, and a dermatophyte was evaluated using the broth‐microdilution technique and expressed as minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC). The EOs revealed moderate in vitro antifungal activity against Trichophyton rubrum and Candida albicans.
  • The Origin of Life: A Problem of History, Chemistry, and Evolution
    • Abstract: The origin of life is a field full of controversies, not only because of our vague understanding concerning the relevant issues, but also, perhaps more often, owing to our dim conceptual framework throughout the whole field. To improve this situation, an in‐depth conceptual dissection is presented here. It is elucidated that, at its core, the origin of life has three aspects. The facts involved in the process are taken as the historical aspect, which is destined to be uncertain and often irrelevant to debate regarding details. The rules involved include two distinct aspects: chemical mechanisms operated in the whole process, while evolutionary mechanisms joined in only after the emergence of the first Darwinian entities – and then accounted for the subsequent buildup of complexity (this cannot be explained solely by natural selection). Basically, we can ask about the possibility of any assumed event in the origin of life: ‘Is it evolutionarily plausible, chemically feasible, and historically likely'’ Clues from any of the three aspects may be quite valuable in directing our explorations on the other two. This conceptual dissection provides a clearer context for the field, which may even be more useful than any sort of specific research.
  • Comparative Analysis of Antioxidant Activities of Fourteen Mentha
           Essential Oils and Their Components
    • Abstract: The essential oils of 14 species and hybrids, respectively, of the genus Mentha were examined for their antioxidant capacity in the ABTS (2,2′‐azinobis(3‐ethylbenzothiazoline‐6‐sulfonic acid)) assay and in a lipid‐peroxidation (LPO) assay. The ABTS.+‐scavenging capacity of pure essential‐oil components and mixtures of them was also tested. In both assays, Mentha×dumetorum (classification not fully confirmed), Mentha suaveolens, and Mentha×villosa (classification not fully confirmed) showed the highest antioxidant capacity, which was ascribed to the components germacrene D, piperitone oxide, and piperitenone oxide. The high antioxidant activity in the LPO assay of the two hybrids Mentha×gracilis and, to a lower degree, of Mentha×dalmatica (classification not fully confirmed) was ascribed to their high contents of cis‐ocimene and β‐caryophyllene. Of the pure components tested (germacrene D, piperitone oxide, and piperitenone oxide were not tested, as not commercially available), only cis‐ocimene showed a distinct antioxidant effect, whereas dihydrocarvone and linalool had pro‐oxidant effects in the ABTS assay.
  • Comprehensive Phenological Description of Essential‐Oil Chemotypes
           of Salvia lavandulifolia Vahl Grown under the Same Environmental
    • Abstract: A comprehensive description of diverse essential‐oil chemical profiles was conducted with twelve individual plants of Salvia lavandulifolia Vahl (Spanish sage) gathered from wild populations and grown under identical culture conditions. Whereas the chemical polymorphism within species of aromatic plants is well known, both the statistical significance of the differences in the chemical composition and the setting of chemical profiles have been scarcely studied. Remarkably different essential‐oil chemical profiles were described for the wild‐growing plants, which remained different during the three years of cultivation, even when acute situations of water stress occurred. Different patterns of representative compounds throughout the phenological cycle of the species were also reported, with 1,8‐cineole being the main oil compound described (contents of up to 75.2%). The Mahalanobis distance was used as a separation parameter, to assign a significance level to a single‐compound chemotype. The phytochemical heterogeneity of some wild populations of Spanish sage was proved. Furthermore, some concrete genotypes presented high percentages of the following volatile compounds: limonene, 1,8‐cineole, trans‐caryophyllene, spathulenol, and viridiflorol.
  • Suppression of IL‐2 Production and Proliferation of CD4+ T Cells by
           Tuberostemonine O
    • Abstract: Tuberostemonine stereoisomers are natural alkaloids found in Stemona tuberosa, that are known to have anti‐inflammatory and anti‐infective properties. Tuberostemonine alkaloids inhibit inflammation by suppressing the expression of inflammatory mediators such as cyclooxygenase and nitric oxide synthase. However, the direct immunomodulatory properties of tuberostemonine alkaloids in T cells have not been elucidated so far. In this study, the activities in T cells of tuberostemonine N (TbN) and a novel alkaloid, tuberostemonine O (TbO), isolated from S. tuberosa, were investigated. Although TbN did not have a significant effect on cytokine production in splenic T cells, TbO selectively suppressed interleukin (IL)‐2 production. Moreover, TbO, but not TbN, significantly inhibited IL‐2 production by primary CD4+ T cells and delayed the T‐cell proliferation in a dose‐dependent manner. Addition of excess recombinant IL‐2 restored the decreased cell‐division rates in TbO‐treated CD4+ T cells to control levels. Collectively, these findings suggest that the immunomodulatory effects of TbO occurred by the suppression of IL‐2 expression and IL‐2‐induced T‐cell proliferation, suggesting a potential beneficial role of tuberostemonine alkaloids for the control of chronic inflammatory and autoimmune diseases caused by hyperactivated T cells.
  • Cochlioquinone Derivatives with Apoptosis‐Inducing Effects on HCT116
           Colon Cancer Cells from the Phytopathogenic Fungus Bipolaris luttrellii
    • Abstract: A new cochlioquinone derivative, cochlioquinone F (1), as well as three known compounds, anhydrocochlioquinone A (2), isocochlioquinone A (3), and isocochlioquinone C (4), were isolated from the PDB (potato dextrose broth) culture of the phytopathogenic fungus Bipolaris luttrellii. The structure of 1 was elucidated on the basis of NMR techniques. The apoptosis‐inducing effects of compounds 1–4 were evaluated against HCT116 cancer cells. Compound 2 exhibited the strongest activity in inducing apoptosis on HCT116 cells within the range of 10–30 μM. In addition, the caspase activation, the release of cytochrome c from mitochondria, and the downregulation of Bcl‐2 protein in HCT116 cells treated with compound 2 were detected.

  • Molecular Dynamics Simulation of Dioxygen Pathways through Mini Singlet
           Oxygen Generator (miniSOG), a Genetically Encoded Marker and Killer
    • Abstract: In this work, molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of the permeation of proteins by small gases of biological significance have been extended from gas carrier, sensor, and enzymatic proteins to genetically encoded tags and killer proteins. To this end, miniSOG was taken as an example of current high interest, using a biased form of MD, called random‐acceleration MD. Various egress gates and binding pockets for dioxygen, as an indistinguishable mimic of singlet dioxygen, were found on both above and below the isoalloxazine plane of the flavin mononucleotide cofactor in miniSOG. Of such gates and binding pockets, those lying within two opposite cones, coaxial with a line normal to the isoalloxazine plane, and with the vertex at the center of such a plane are those most visited by the escaping gas molecule. Out of residues most capable of quenching 1O2, Y30, lying near the base of one such a cone, and H85, near the base of the opposite cone, are held to be most responsible for the reduced quantum yield of 1O2 with folded miniSOG with respect to free flavin mononucleotide in solution.
  • Biogeographic Variation of Foliar n‐Alkanes of Juniperus communis
           var. saxatilis Pallas from the Balkans
    • Abstract: The composition of the epicuticular n‐alkanes isolated from the leaves of ten populations of Juniperus communis L. var. saxatilis Pallas from central (continental) and western (coastal) areas of the Balkan Peninsula was characterized by GC‐FID and GC/MS analyses. In the leaf waxes, 14 n‐alkane homologues with chain‐lengths ranging from C22 to C35 were identified. All samples were dominated by n‐tritriacontane (C33), but differences in two other dominant n‐alkanes allowed separating the coastal from the continental populations. Several statistical methods (ANOVA, principal component, discriminant, and cluster analyses as well as the Mantel test) were deployed to analyze the diversity and variability of the epicuticular‐leaf‐n‐alkane patterns of the ten natural populations of J. communis var. saxatilis and their relation to different geographic and bioclimatic parameters. Cluster analysis showed a high correlation of the leaf‐n‐alkane patterns with the geographical distribution of the investigated samples, differentiating the coastal from the continental populations of this taxon. Several bioclimatic parameters related to aridity were highly correlated with this differentiation.
  • Pollen Diversity and Volatile Variability of Honey from Corsican Anthyllis
           hermanniae L. Habitat
    • Abstract: Melissopalynological, physicochemical, and volatile analyses of 29 samples of Corsican ‘summer maquis’ honey were performed. The pollen spectrum was characterized by a wide diversity of nectariferous and/or polleniferous taxa. The most important were Anthyllis hermanniae and Rubus sp., associated with some endemic taxa. Castanea sativa was also determined in these honeys with a great variation. The volatile fraction was characterized by 37 compounds and dominated by phenolic aldehydes and linear acids. The major compounds were phenylacetaldehyde, benzaldehyde, and nonanoic acid. Statistical analysis of pollen and volatile data showed that 18 samples were characterized by a high abundance of phenylacetaldehyde, which might relate to the high amount of A. hermanniae and Rubus sp. Eleven other samples displayed a higher proportion of phenolic ketones and linear acids, which characterized the nectar contribution of C. sativa and Thymus herba‐barona, respectively.
  • Cytotoxic (9βH)‐Pimarane and
           (9βH)‐17‐Norpimarane Diterpenes from the Tuber of Icacina
    • Abstract: Three (9βH)‐pimaranes, 1, 2, and 3, and two (9βH)‐17‐norpimaranes, 4 and 5, belonging to a rare compound class in nature, were obtained from the tubers of Icacina trichantha for the first time. Compound 1 is a new natural product, and 2–5 have been previously reported. The structures were elucidated based on NMR and MS data, and optical rotation values. The absolute configurations of (9βH)‐pimaranes were unambiguously established based on X‐ray crystallographic analysis. Full NMR signal assignments for the known compounds 2, 4, and 5, which were not available in previous publications, are also reported. All five isolates displayed cytotoxic activities on MDA‐MB‐435 cells (IC50 0.66–6.44 μM), while 2, 3, and 4 also exhibited cytotoxicities on HT‐29 cells (IC50 3.00–4.94 μM).
