The Bacterial Product Violacein Exerts an Immunostimulatory Effect Via TLR8
Violacein, an indole-derived, purple-colored natural pigment isolated from Chromobacterium violaceum has shown multiple biological activities. In this work, we studied the effect of violacein in different immune cell lines, ...
Bioassay-guided isolation of anti-inflammatory O-sulfated withanolides from Acnistus arborescens (Solanaceae)
Bioassay-guided fractionation of Acnistus arborescens (Solanaceae) organic extract afforded two anti-inflammatory withanolides: 2,3-Dihydro-3β-O-sulfate withacnistin (1) and 2,3-Dihydro-3β-O-sulfate withaferin A (2) showing ...
Pristine but metal-rich Río Sucio (Dirty River) is dominated by Gallionella and other iron-sulfur oxidizing microbes
Whether the extreme conditions of acidity and heavy metal pollution of streams and rivers originating in pyritic formations are caused primarily by mining activities or by natural activities of metal-oxidizing microbes ...
