Therapeutic effects of several medicinal plants and vegetables, which are commonly used as food and in folk medicine against many disease, are well known. Antioxidant capacities of Heracleum persicum Desf., Prangos ferulacea (L.) Lindl., Chaerophyllum macropodum Boiss. species from Apiaceae family were evaluated by determining their effects on DPPH radical scavenging, and lipid peroxidation inhibition, as well as their total phenolic contents. Potential natural glutathione-S-transferase inhibitors have gained great importance in the last decade especially because of the role of glutathione-S-transferases in developing resistance to chemotherapy. Selected plants were therefore further investigated for their influence on the activity of glutathione-S-transferase enzyme.

Comparative effects of emodin on biological activities of MCF-7 and MDA-231 cell lines
Sakallı, Elif; İşcan, Mesude; Department of Biochemistry (2010)
Emodin (1,3,8-trihydroxy-6-methylanthraquinone) is a phytoestrogenic component of Rheum plant extracts which has been used for medical treatment since ancient times. It has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects. In our research, we aimed to study the biological effects of emodin on MCF-7 and MDA-231 cell lines. Cytotoxicity assays showed that emodin treatment for 48hours caused a concentration dependent decrease in viable cell numbers of both cell lines. As determined by cell counting...
Anticarcinogenic effects of the ethanolic extract from salix aegyptiaca l. in colon cancer, involvement of akt pathway
Enayat, Shabnam; Banerjee, Sreeparna; Department of Biology (2013)
Salix aegyptiaca has been used for centuries as a medicinal plant for various health disorders. Our previous study demonstrated high contents of phenolics and antioxidants in its bark many of those are famed for their anti-inflammatory properties. Since inflammation frequently accompanies the progress of colorectal cancer, in the current study we showed that the ethanolic extract of bark (EEB) from S.aegyptiaca exerted strong anti-proliferative effects on several cancer cells but not on non-cancerous CCD-18...
Antioxidant and cytotoxic properties of Salvia fruticosa M. and its effects on gene expressions of some CYP450 and antioxidant enzymes in HT-29 cell line
Altay, Ahmet; Bozoğlu, Faruk; Tokuşoğlu, Özlem; Department of Biochemistry (2015)
Salvia genus is a widely cultivated as a perennial herb and used in medicine for various purposes due to its antimicrobial, antioxidant, anticarcinogen and anti-inflammatory properties. In this study, the phenolic composition of water extract of Salvia fruticosa and possible effects of those constituents in cancer related drug metabolizing enzymes are investigated. S. fruticosa extract displayed high Radical Scavenging Activity against DPPH and ABTS radicals and also showed high Fe2+ Chelating Activity . To...
Antioxidant and cytotoxic properties of Salvia Absconditiflora and effects on CYP1A1, CYP1B1 gene expressions in breast cancer cell lines
Yılmaz, Selis; İşcan, Mesude; Güray, Tülin; Department of Biochemistry (2013)
Salvia genus is a widely cultivated genus and used in medicine for various purposes as having antimicrobial, antioxidant, anticarcinogen and anti-inflammatory features. In this study the aim was to investigate phenolic composition of Salvia absconditiflora and understand the possible effects of those constituents in cancer related drug metabolizing enzymes. Salvia absconditiflora showed 80,43 % Radical Scavenging Activity against DPPH radical. Total flavonoid content was found as one third of total phenolic...
Antioxidant capacities and bioactive compounds of novel thermo-tolerant green microalgae
Bulut, Onur; Öktem, Hüseyin Avni; Department of Biotechnology (2018)
Accumulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) at high levels in cells as a result of normal cellular activities as well as exposure to oxidative stress is attributed to many chronic degenerative diseases and conditions in humans including cardiovascular diseases, cancer and aging-related conditions such as Alzheimer's disease. Although living organisms are equipped with enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidant defense systems to counteract the adverse effects of oxidative stress, yet they rely on exogenous s...
