Here we report the ability of this website EEA to inhibit alpha glucosidase. HPLC analysis revealed that the major constituents of the extracts are vinblastine an alkaloid compound which showed a sharp peak at 2.850 mV respectively (Fig. 1). EEA was able to inhibit alpha glucosidase inhibitory activities in vitro in dose dependent manner. It has been recently reported that tea polyphenols inhibited glucose transporter of small intestine epithelial cells. Ethyl acetate extracts showed better activity than acarbose
with smallest IC50 values was 73.64 μg/mL. The most active extract showed competitive inhibition. Chemical analysis indicated that the α-glucosidase inhibitor was flavonoid. 23 In addition, polyphenols controlled the rise in blood glucose level when humans fed with fixed amount of carbohydrates with food, because a negative correlation was indicated by the polyphenolic content and glycemic index. 24 The enzyme inhibitors impede digestion through their action of digestive enzymes which play ABT-199 cell line a key role in the digestion
of plant starch and portions. Our results showed strong inhibition of alpha glucosidase activity. Higher inhibitory activities of EEA against alpha glucosidase that our results confirmed suggest its potential in prevention and therapy of obesity and diabetes. In most of the cases the mechanism of inhibition occurs through the direct blockage of the active center at several sub sites of 17-DMAG (Alvespimycin) HCl the enzyme. EEA has a good free radical scavenging
activity against all the four radicals. Maximum percentage inhibition was found against hydroxyl radical (71.15%). Alpha glucosidase activity performed under in vitro conditions showed an interesting result of 83.33% inhibition further in vivo study of α-glucosidase inhibition was carried out in lowering maltose and sucrose levels in blood. EEA treated and Acarbose treated animals did not show any change in the plasma glucose level. Hence EEA has a potential ability to inhibit the alpha glucosidase enzyme thereby causing partial digestion and keeping the blood glucose level normal. All authors have none to declare. “
“miRNAs are short (16–21 nt) endogenous, non-coding RNA (ncRNAs) molecules that regulate pervasive in higher eukaryotic gene expression at the post translation level of protein-coding genes, by the binding to complementary sequences in the 3′ UTR of multiple target messenger RNA (mRNA) and promote their degradation and/or translational inhibition.1 There are evidences that miRNAs have been implicated in various biological processes including cell proliferation and apoptosis during development, cell–cell interactions during development of the peripheral nervous system,2 to stress resistance and fat metabolism,3 from cellularization and segmentation on embryos4 to cardiogenesis5 and muscle growth,6 signaling, cell fate identity, organ differentiation and development, stress responses and carcinogenesis.
