Teucrium polium (known popularly as felty germander) is a sub-shrub and herb native to the Mediterranean region and the Middle East. Its flowers are small and range from pink to white, and its leaves are used in cooking and for medicine, particularly for the treatment of stomach ailments. It has also shown some promise in the treatment of visceral pain. In traditional Persian medicine, T. polium (locally called kalpooreh) is used as an anti-hypertensive, anti-bacterial, carminative, anti-nociceptive, anti-inflammatory, anti-diarrhea, anti-diabetes and anti-convulsant agent. A scientific study in 2003 failed to find any benefit to diabetics, even though it is commonly used in the mideast for this purpose. A scientific study in 2006 found that it does have anti-nociceptive and anti-spasmodic effects. Caution should be applied with use of this herb due to its known Liver and Kidney toxicity. ...

Tuberculosis.. Characteristics.─T. scorodonia is an extremely bitter plant with the smell and taste of hops, for which it has been substituted. Some have observed an alliaceous smell, and Cazin says that it gives a garlicky taste to the milk of cows, goats, and sheep which eat it. Dr. Criquelion, of Mons (Rev. Hom. Belge, June, 1895, quoted R. H. Fran aise, Feb., 1896), tells how Dr. Martiny one day, in the Ardennes, had occasion to examine a man of thirty who was apparently in the last stage of consumption and had a cavity in one apex. Martiny gave his opinion that he had not long to live. A year later, being in the same district, he called at the house and inquired of a man whom he saw there, apparently in perfect health, what had become of the invalid. I am he, was the reply. It was the fact, ...

There are, however, conflicting reports of hepatotoxicity in the literature, and case reports alone (without laboratory testing and verification of the presence of each of the listed ingredients) mean that it is difficult to make firm conclusions about hepatotoxicity.. In Australia, a recent death was attributed to the ingestion of Kava 1800 Plus. On laboratory analysis, Piper methysticum (kava) and Passiflora incarnata (passionflower) were found to be present in the formulation. However, Scutellaria lateriflora (skullcap), which was also listed as an ingredient in this product, was not found. The identity of the third ingredient has yet to be established (37).Teucrium is similar in appearance to skullcap, and there have been other reports of substitution of Teucrium for Scutellaria. Teucrium can lead to hepatotoxicity and renal failure, and has been banned as a slimming agent in Europe.. When hepatotoxicity occurs, it is important to verify each listed ingredient in a formulation, to accurately ...
Saponins isolated from plant sources have a number of traditional and industrial applications. Saponins have pharmacological effects like anti-inflammatory, molluscicidal, antimicrobial, antispasmodic, antidiabetic, anticancer, anticonvulsant, anthelmintic, antitussive and cytotoxic activities. The current work describes the anthelmintic and cytotoxic activities of crude saponins of Achillea Wilhelmsii and Teucrium Stocksianum as these plants are rich with saponins. Brine shrimp cytotoxic activity of crude saponins was determined by Meyer et al. (1982) at test concentrations of 1000 μg/ml, 100 μg/ml, 10 μg/ml, 7.5 μg/ml, 5.0 μg/ml, 2.5 μg/ml and 1.25 μg/ml. Percentage mortality of test concentrations was determined. Similarly, in vitro anthelmintic activity was determined against roundworms, tapeworms and earthworms. Albendazole and piperazine citrate at concentration 10 mg/ml were used as standard anthelmintic drugs. Crude saponins of Achillea wilhelmsii (CSA) and Teucrium stocksianum (CST) had,
There are some reports in ancient medicinal literature that aqueous extracts of the leaves of Teucrium polium show analgesic effects. This prompted us to investigate the analgesic effect of the leaves of the plant using Tail-Flick and Fomalin tests. For this purpose, male NMRI rats weighing 220-260 g were used in all experiments. The aqueous extract of the plant was injected intraperitoneally at doses of 150, 200 and 400 mg/kg. In this study, sodium salicylate (100 and 300 mg/kg) and distilled water were used as positive and negative controls, respectively. The results obtained were analyzed using one-way ANOVA and Tukey-Kramer tests. Our data showed that intraperitoneal injection of aqueous extract of leaves of this plant (150, 200 and 400 mg/kg) produces significant analgesia in both phases of the formalin test (P

Oxidative stress is a major cause of drug-induced hepatic diseases and several studies have demonstrated that diet supplementation with plants rich in antioxidant compounds provides a variety of health benefits in these circumstances. Genista quadriflora Munby (Gq) and Teucrium polium geyrii Maire (Tp) are known to possess antioxidant and numerous biological properties and these endemic plants are often used for dietary or medicinal applications. Herein, we evaluated the beneficial effect of rich-polyphenol fractions of Gq and Tp to prevent Acetaminophen-induced liver injury and investigated the mechanisms involved in this protective action. Rats were orally administered polyphenolic extracts from Gq or Tp (300 mg/kg) or N-acetylcysteine (NAC: 200 mg/kg) once daily for ten days prior to the single oral administration of Acetaminophen (APAP: 1 g/kg). The results show that preventive administration of polyphenolic extracts from Gq or Tp exerts a hepatoprotective influence during APAP treatment by ...

While decreased channel function is ultimately anti-nociceptive, directly targeting the channel can lead to multiple adverse side effects. Targeting modulators of channel activity may facilitate improved analgesic properties associated with channel block and a broader therapeutic window. A novel interaction between Ca v2.2 and collapsin response mediator protein 2 (CRMP-2) positively regulates channel function by increasing ...

Two plants endemic to Australia have lived the cycle of endangerment and extinction only to have returned after not being spotted for more than 100 years. Teucrium ajugaceum, a plant declared extinct in 1992 after disappearing in 1891, reappeared in 2004 and was discovered by a crew of environmentalists studying the effects of road building on plants. The plants unique structure allows it to withdraw into an underground tuber each year and sprout at the beginning of the wet season to avoid the damages of wildfires. Rhaphidospora cavernarum, a flowering mint plant that has been missing since 1873, was also rediscovered. Though very little is known about the plant, it is classified as endangered because of its diminutive range and endangerment from weeds and cattle.. ...

Among the pathogenetic symptoms of Teucrium marum verum are to be found manifestations which are very similar to those produced by a nasal polypus, viz: "Violent titillation in the right nostril with weeping of the right eye." "Titillation in the nose soon after taking the medicine, recurring frequently." "The right nostril feels as if it were half closed; the obstruction cannot be removed by blowing the nose or sneezing." "Brief lancinations in the upper part of the right nasal cavity." "Fluent coryza in the open air." "The nose is much obstructed, several times during the day, and particularly in the evening while reading aloud." (Archiv. V.) The following remarks, are also to be found in the same Journal ( XX.)

Cellular signalling is the key to any form of life. Research in BIOSS raised the concept that cellular signalling is mediated through protein assemblies of different complexity. Comprehensive understanding of these assemblies and their finely orchestrated operation represents the key to physiology, pathophysiology and manipulation of cells and organs. BIOSS-A1 focuses on signalling at the plasma membrane studying organization of protein complexes. The rules of their assembly as well as the structural and mechanistic details of their operation are studied by a combined approach of high-end proteomic, biochemical, structural and functional analyses of a variety of distinct classes of membrane proteins. Investigations of how extracellular signals are translated into changes in gene expression and how epigenetic modifications of chromatin modulate proliferation, cell fate decisions and differentiation are pursued in BIOSS-A2. BIOSS-A3 focuses on key signalling mechanisms that regulate biogenesis and ...

German researchers have shown a new mechanism via which cells defend themselves against stress. Dr. Kathrin Thedieck and Birgit Holzwarth from the Institute of Biology III and the Cluster of Excellence BIOSS Centre for Biological Signalling Studies of the University of Freiburg have discovered that Astrin, a rarely investigated component of many cells, plays an important part in this process. The scientists demonstrated the stress function of Astrin, which was previously mainly known for its role in cell division, and published their findings in the renowned scientific journal Cell. Astrin maybe an important drug target, as tumor cells avoid cell death due to high Astrin levels.
Evaluation of essential oils from Boswellia sacra and Teucrium mascatense against acetyl cholinesterase enzyme and urease enzyme
The dried aerial parts of scutellaria lateriflora L. (family Labiatae), have been used for many years as a domestic remedy for epilepsy, hysteria, and nervous tension states. Although several phytochemical investigations have been made regarding the constituents present in this species (i. e. flavonoids, iridoids), none has been recorded concerning the cuticular wax. Using thin-layer chromatography (TLC), column chromatography, gas-liquid chromatography (GLC), and GLC-mass spectrometry, laterifloral collected from Mazandaran province in northern Iran have been analysed. The wax yield was 1.2%. The alkanes fall in the range of C23 to C37 the odd carbon number n-alkanes being predominant. The concentration of branched alkane is low (1.2%). Three homologous series of branched alkanes were identified as 3,9-dimethyl alkanes, 2-methyl alkanes and 3-methyl alkanes.

American skullcap leaf helps alleviate anxiety and nervous tension and may be effectively combined with herbs such as valerian for this purpose, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. Researchers of a study published in the April 2012 "Journal of Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Analysis" found over a dozen flavonoid antioxidants and other compounds in skullcap that might be responsible for its anti-anxiety benefits. American skullcap decreased anxiety in an animal study published in the November 2003 issue of "Phytomedicine." Supplementation with an extract of American skullcap containing 40 milligrams per gram of an active flavonoid compound called baicalin, 33 milligrams per gram of a related compound called aglycone baicalein and 1.6 milligrams per gram of the calming neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid, or GABA, resulted in the animals showing increased time in open, unprotected areas. Researchers noted that baicalin and aglycone baicalein bind to the same receptor in the ...

The antimicrobial efficacy wasdetermined using the disk diffusion (0.5, 1, 2 and 4 mg/disk) and minimal inhibition concentration (MIC)method. Among the 11 tested herbs, 9 plants showed antimicrobial activity against one or more species ofmicroorganism. The most active antimicrobial plants were Stachys obtusicrena, Anvillea garcinii, Salviaspecies, Otostegia persica and Teucrium persicum.
Diosmin is a flavone, a member of the flavonoid family. Diosmin aglycone is diosmetin. It can be found in Teucrium gnaphalodes, a plant endemic to the Iberian Peninsula. Diosmin is a semisynthetic flavonoid molecule derived from citrus d (modified hesperidin). It is an oral phlebotropic drug used in the treatment of venous disease, i.e., chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) including spider and varicose veins, leg swelling (edema), stasis dermatitis and venous ulcers. It is also used as a stand-alone or surgical adjunctive therapy in hemorrhoidal disease (HD). There are extensive clinical trials that show diosmin improves all stages of venous disease including venous ulcers and improves quality of life. There are no prospective studies in arterial disease. Diosmin is currently a prescription medication in some European countries (under the Dio-PP, Venotec, Daflon etc. tradenames), and is sold as a nutritional supplement in the United States. Diosmin has been found to be effective in mitigating ...
Skullcap is yet another herb of the mint family, the first medicinal use of skullcap can probably be found by looking into the lives of the Native Americans. The roots of skullcap were used as a remedy for things such as diarrhea and kidney problems. It wasnt until the settlers came that skullcap gained a reputation of being a sedative. They used it for a whole host of problems including fevers, anxious nerves, and even rabies. Today skullcap is most often found being used as a mild relaxant to treat anxiety, insomnia, tension headaches and fibromyalgia. When it comes to growing skullcap for your herb garden you have to realize that there is the North American variety and the Chinese type as well. The Chinese skullcap is the much hardier variety and well grow well in both warm or cool climates and handles drought very well. The North American skullcap however requires a very rich, moist and slightly acidic soil, so conditions have to be more precise in order to get the North American variety to ...

One of the most important nut-infesting insect pests of pecan is the pecan nut casebearer.. It is found in all pecan-growing regions of Texas and in southeastern New Mexico. Casebearer larvae tunnel into nutlets shortly after pollination, often destroying all nutlets in a cluster.. The most effective and reliable control method is a well-timed insecticide applications made in spring to kill hatching larvae before they tunnel into the nutlets. However, insecticides should be applied only if infestations and nut load justify treatment.. The adult casebearer is a gray to almost black moth about one-third of an inch long. They have a ridge of dark scales followed by a band of lighter color runs across the forewings. Moths are active only at night when they mate and lay eggs on pecan nuts.. Their eggs are oval, flat and tiny - just large enough to be seen with the unaided eye. When first laid, eggs are greenish-white or white. Tiny red spots soon appear on the egg, giving it a pink color before it ...
Ranitomeya sirensis has been considered one of the most enigmatic poison frogs since its description in the early 1990s. Its unusual color pattern, coupled with the fact that it occupies a remote and isolated mountain range, left many researchers wondering how it was related to other Ranitomeya species. In 2007, Jason Brown, Evan Twomey, Mark Pepper, and Manuel Sanchez were successful in finding topotypic material in the Cordillera El Sira. Needless to say, we were quite surprised when phylogenetic data came back that placed this species directly in the middle of R. lamasi, rendering the species paraphyletic (in molecular taxonomy, the basis for species are unique evolutionary lineages). In 2008, another expedition shed further light on this issue. In this trip, several individuals from both "species" were seen breeding together in the foothills of the Sira, and furthermore, some intermediate individuals were found (e.g., individuals that looked like sirensis but with faint, scattered black ...
