In richer soils, it will grow much larger, up to a meter high. Untreated promastigotes and DMSO were used as negative controls. Phytochemical analyses have shown that oenothein B is the main tannin isolated from Epilobium and Oenotherafollowed by other flavonoids such as myricetin- quercetin- and kaempferol-glycosides [ 6 — 8 ].

The main tannin isolated from this family, oenothein B, has both in vivo and in vitro antitumor activities [ 9 — 12 ]. The Scientific World Journal.

Due to its high abundance, oenothein B is considered the main compound responsible for the antitumor, antioxidant, antibacterial, antiviral, and phagocytic activities both in vivo and in vitro [ 9 — 1131 ]. We’ve sent an email to Please follow the instructions to reset your password. Extracts and fractions were also tested against the parasite L. Racemisa effects of extracts and fractions of Lopezia racemosa. In this regard, extracts of L.

Bacterial stocks were maintained on the same medium supplemented with 1. DMSO and untreated inocula were used as racemoas controls, while amikacin, ampicillin, gentamicin, and rifampicin were used as positive controls.


In the present study, we examine the biological properties of L. Thus, in the present study, we investigate the antibacterial, antifungal, and antiparasitic activities of L.

Edwards from William Curtis’ ‘Botanical Magazine. Central AmericaLopezia Do More: The minimal inhibitory concentrations MICs were determined when no turbidity in the well was observed. We assessed the cytotoxic and anti-inflammatory activities of the fractions and extracts that showed either antibacterial, antifungal, or antiparasitic activities.

It is very easy to grow from seed if sown in February to March. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study reporting the biological activities of L.

Diverse studies have demonstrated that rscemosa members of the Onagraceae family have selective anti-inflammatory activity in animal models [ 781527 ] and cytotoxic activities against several tumor cell lines [ 111228 — 30 ].

You can skip to the end and leave a response. Propidium iodide PI was used to evaluate membrane damage [ 18 ]. Extracts and fractions were exposed overnight to macrophages prior to the addition of LPS. Email required Address never made lopfzia.

It is native to Mexico, Salvador and Guatemala and belongs to the family Onagraceae. In this study, we report for the first time that two fractions HF 11—14b and MF 28—36 and one extract CE showed significant antiparasitic activity against L. In the case of filamentous fungi, bioactivities were tested using harvested spores.

It will already flower in May or June of that same year and will continue flowering till September or October, producing many seed berries which contain seeds each. Extracts loopezia fractions from aerial parts of this plant were assessed to determine their antibacterial, antifungal, antiparasitic, anti-inflammatory and cytotoxic activities in vitro.

Two fractions of L. Compounds were evaluated at the final concentrations mentioned for the antibacterial activities. Lopezia racemosa, Mosquito flower Mosquito Flower Lopezia racemosa native to Mexico flowering in summer Lopezia racemosa inflorescence Lopezia racemosa Mexican lopezia, Lopezia racemosa.


The same macrophage cell line was used to investigate the cytotoxicity of the compounds. Yet, other compounds present in the extracts may exert different biological activities as observed in different studies.

The antifungal activity of L.

This large seed production and the risk of it becoming a weed is also known in another plant, Talinum paniculata. Enter your log in email address and we’ll send you a link to reset your password.

Abstract The present study investigates the potential benefits of the Racemksa medicinal plant Lopezia racemosa Onagraceae. The half maximal inhibitory concentration IC 50 was calculated by plotting the compound concentrations against the percentage of damaged cells.

Lopezia racemosa

In poor soil it flowers at just 15cm high but in better conditions it reached 60cm and was quite bushy and almost woody at the base by the end of the season. Most of the genera studied possess mainly flavonols, which include myricetin, quercetin, kaempferol, and remarkable amounts of various phenolic acids [ lopezua715 ]. This unusual plant is a perennial, but is mostly grown as an annual.

Cytotoxicity was evaluated with human-derived macrophages THP-1 cells. Notify me of new comments via email.
