Antiarins are cardiac glycoside poisons produced by the upas tree (Antiaris toxicaria). There are two forms, α-antiarin and β-antiarin. β-Antiarin, a cardiac glycoside steroid, can be isolated from upas tree latex (Antiaris toxicaria). Its use ranges from medical use, such as hypertension treatment, to arrow poison application. It also proves to be more poisonous than curare, sporting a low LD50 of 0.1 mg/kg in most mammals. To date, β-antiarin has only been isolated from the upas tree by the scientist H. Kiliani in 1896; no synthetic synthesis has yet been achieved. Upon β-antiarin poisoning, when observed in animals such as frogs and small mammals, visible symptoms include muscle spasms - particularly of the head and neck - and excess defecation. Paralysis can also be presented before death. The primary physiological system affected is the cardiac muscle, though gastro-intestinal tissue has also been known to be severely affected by this type of poisoning. Convulsions and spasms are not ...

Natural News) Stroke is one of the few things that often appears on the short list of illnesses that doctors - as well as the media - often refer to as silent killers. It works quietly, in the background, and rather quickly after it starts, so one of the best strategies that you can employ to stand a chance against it is to simply prevent it from happening in the first place.. Indeed, as the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. But in case you find that its too late to prevent a stroke, new research suggests that you can now use plants that are rich in antioxidant phytochemicals for effective treatment. Researchers looked at one plant in particular, called Antiaris africana Engl. (Moraceae), in order to gather data on its anti-stroke potential.. The logic behind why exactly the researchers sought to determine the efficacy of a plant for the treatment and prevention of stroke is actually rather simple. In their papers introduction, they reason that many drugs ...
The greatest public health concern about water is directed to its ever increasing number of contaminants. Public distribution systems, though accessible only to a limited population, mainly make use of chemicals in the treatment processes. Such water treatment systems overlay burden on the developing nations financial resources. Moreover, reports states that such chemicals can cause severe health hazards. These points out the need for low-cost, replicable non-chemicals, which would be effective in the treatment of water contaminants. In the present study, treatment potentialities of vegetative parts of certain hydrophytic / mesophytic plants like Lagenandra toxicaria Dalz, Aloe barbedensis Mill., Canna indica. L and Bacopa monnieri (L.) Wettst, on Turbidity, Hardness, Iron and microbial count of contaminated water has been worked out.. Batch treatment has been followed and the performance evaluation of plants under varying concentration of plant materials and retention time has been worked out. ...

In the present study, we report for the first time, to our knowledge, that high glucose was able to attenuate the overall level of protein S-nitrosylation in primary human endothelial cells. We have identified at least seven proteins that were reduced by high glucose in their S-nitrosylation status as shown in Fig. 1 and Table 1. These decreased S-nitrosylated proteins can be classed as 1) cytoskeleton proteins (β-actin, paxillin, vimentin, and vinculin), 2) metabolic enzymes (eNOS and diacylglycerol kinase-α), 3) chaperone (GRP78), 4) signaling molecules (H-ras and ERK-1), and 5) transcription factor (NF-κB). It is noted that although the level of a vast majority of S-nitrosylated proteins was decreased, the extent of a number of them was actually either increased or unchanged under high-glucose conditions, suggesting a specific role for high glucose in the regulation of protein S-nitrosylation. Because S-nitrosylation has been implicated in the regulation of numerous protein activities ...
