α-Glucosidase inhibitory activities of some Oxovanadium(IV) complexes: Examples of low IC50 values

α-Glucosidase inhibition measurements have been made on oxovanadium(IV) complexes of eight Schiff base ligands. Three of the complexes show exceptionally low IC50 values: VO(sal-anl)2 = 2.105 µM, VO(sal-mxyanl)2 = 1.26 µM and VO(sal-ntranl)2 = 1.26 µM. In-vivo experiments for antihyperglycemic activity carried out on one of these complexes, viz.,...

The acute cytotoxicity and lethal concentration (LC50) of Agaricus sylvaticus through hemolytic activity on human erythrocyte

There is limited information regarding acute toxicity and lethal concentration of edible and medicinal mushrooms. The objective of this paper is to estimate the cytotoxicity of the aqueous extract of Agaricus sylvaticus mushroom on human erythrocytes by determining the lethal average concentration (LC50). Six concentrations of the mushroom (17, 8.5, 4.25, 2.125, 1.0625 and 0.5312 mg/mL) were submitted for...
