Open in a separate window. Kumar S, Pandey AK. Britain’s new Big cheese”. Quo vadis quorum quenching? The powdered root of asphodel is mentioned as an ingredient in a sleeping potion in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J. The authors are grateful to Dr. Nowadays, natural products appear to be an interesting solution against the emergency of the antibacterial resistance and immune-regulators. Zhu J, Kaufmann Asphodelue. Biological activities of aerial parts extracts of Euphorbia characias.

In fact, they could be a good alternative to synthetic chemical antimicrobial agents and antibiotics, because of the serious side effects, antimicrobial resistance and the emergence of previously uncommon infections, which have been increasing due to inappropriate or widespread overuse of antimicrobials. If we compare two Gram positive bacteria groups, our data demonstrate that AE extract is more active with aerobic mcirocarpus Staphylococcus than with facultative anaerobic strains Streptococcus.

Received Jun 1; Accepted Jul Asphodelus ramosusalso aasphodelus as branched asphodelis a perennial herb in the Asparagales order.

In this study, A. To evaluate the antimicrobial profile of AE, 13 different microbial strains have been used. Moreover, cichoric acid and cumaril exosa malic acid were not present in flowers extract. Quantitative ethnopharmacological study of the Campidano Valley and Urzulei district, Sardinia, Italy.

Standardized Extract Of Asphodelus Microcarpus |

In other projects Wikimedia Commons Wikispecies. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. When tested for antibiofilm activity, AE showed an interesting effect on various bacterial strains E. Lieberman D, Lieberman D. In fact, flavonoids are able to interfere with different cell membrane compounds in lipid bilayers and they may control the arrangement of membrane proteins with the formation of functional complexes responsible for cell signal transduction and the regulation of the metabolism [ 45 ].


Background The interest for plant extracts and derived compounds is significantly increased over the last years, in the attempt to identify new active substances with therapeutic properties [ 12 ]. The plant was identified by Dr. ADP and AF were involved in the design of this research, data collection and supervision. Springer Nature remains neutral with regard to jurisdictional claims in published maps and institutional affiliations. These flavones were extracted from many plants and several studies showed their anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antioxidant and anti-HIV activity and may be involved in AE biological activity [ 49 — 51 ].

Retrieved from ” https: In order to find novel antimicrobial and antiviral agents, the aim of the present study was the evaluation of the antibacterial and antibiofilm susceptibility of Asphodelus microcarpus leaves extract.

Please review our privacy policy. The discovery of small molecules able to reinforce the innate antiviral response when it is under viral attack is a novel and powerful approach against the inhibitory strategies carried out by highly pathogenic viruses such as EBOV through its VP35 protein.

It is considered that these differences depend on solvent material and extraction process used. Minimum inhibitory concentration MIC versus minimum biofilm eliminating concentration MBEC in evaluation of antibiotic sensitivity of gram-negative bacilli causing peritonitis.

The plants are hardy herbaceous perennials with narrow tufted radical leaves and an elongated stem bearing a handsome spike of white or yellow flowers. It has been observed that biofilm formation is associated with many infectious diseases and is a major concern for immunocompromised patients [ 10 ] because it provides structural stability and protection to the bacteria, so that the entrapped bacteria become resistant against extreme environmental conditions i.

Asian Pac J Trop Med. However, other studies will be needed to clarify AE microarpus component as well as the AE mechanism in the biofilm formation and to verify if others bacteria are sensitive to AE. Published online Jul Table 2 Cell growth inhibition of A cell line by plant extract. Am J Respir Med. The AE was analyzed as previously reported [ 43 ]. In Vivo Brooklyn ; Pseudomonal infections in patients with COPD: Use of a modified miicrocarpus bioassay method to investigate antibacterial activity in the Peruvian medicinal plant Peperomia Galioides.


Asphodels are popular garden plants, which grow in well-drained soils with abundant natural light. However, highly pathogenic viruses such as Ebola virus EBOVdeveloped a number of strategies for counteracting innate microcagpus system responses [ 2223 ]. Articles with ‘species’ microformats All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from June All stub articles. In ethnobotanical literature, its use for otitis and toothache in Algeria [ 28 ] and for lung diseases in Sardinia [ 29 ] has been also reported.

Defense mechanisms against invading pathogens are accurately controlled by both innate and adaptive immunity. Views Read Edit View history. All authors read and approved the final version of the manuscript. When tested on 13 different microorganisms, AE showed an inhibitory effect on Gram-positive bacteria while lower inhibition was observed on the Gram-negative bacteria E.

The antimicrobial activity of ethanolic extract from A. Moreover, the antiviral activity and the phytochemical composition of the active extract were also determined.

Asphodelus microcarpus

Asphodellus Libyan nomads made their huts of asphodel stalks. Within this context, one approach to subvert this powerful immune response inhibition is to identify small molecules that potentiate or activate the IFN signaling pathway, increasing IFN production in response to viral infections to a level able to overturn this inhibition.
