Description

  • In this work particular attention was given to the study of secondary metabolites produced by some plants belonging to the Amaryllidaceae family, in the specific case isoquinoline alkaloids. At the first instance were characterized both qualitatively and quantitatively three different plants belonging to Amaryllidaceae family, such as: Crinum angustum Steud., Pancratium illyricum L., and Leucojum nicaeense Ard. The alkaloids extracts obtained were separately tested against enzymes involved in specific diseases or liable in multifactorial pathologies, like: MMPs, AChE,and PPO. From leaves extract of P.illyricum was isolated a new compound, 11╬▒-hydroxy-O-methylleucotamine, with important role in AChE inbition. Considering the protection role against external bodies carried out by these metabolites in plant, extracts were also assayed against ATCC microorganisms and clinical isolates. Plants with promising pharmacological activities have been the basis for development of in vitro plant models.
