Book Description :

Bioactive natural products are an excellent source of novel therapeutics. The search for bioactive molecules from nature continues to play a major role in developing new generation natural products of therapeutic importance. The present critical review includes research work carried out by active researchers in natural products’ chemistry, pharmacology and therapeutics, and their implications in antidiabetic medications. This compiled scientific information will be a useful resource for future research especially in indentifying promising leads and direction for the development of novel drugs including useful adjuvants for the treatment of diabetic patient. The present therapeutic approaches in the treatment of diabetes are mainly focused to lower the elevated blood glucose by reducing its absorption in gastrointestinal tract, enhancing the sensitivity of insulin, controlling or modulating hepatic glucose output, and increased utilization of the glucose by the peripheral tissues. Involvement of oxidative stress and its impact on the cellular damage in diabetes mellitus has been established and could be a useful paradigm for the development of novel antihyperglycemics along with other therapeutic strategies. The present review also highlights the effects of various herbs, phytoconstituents, phytochemicals, microbial metabolites, and products of marine origins on hyperglycemic/diabetic conditions. Furthermore, efforts were made to discuss novel molecular targets such as insulin-signaling pathways, peroxisome proliferative activating receptor-γ, and G-protein-coupled receptors that are participating in enhancing/influencing insulin secretion, critical carbohydrate metabolism pathways, endoplasmic reticulum stress-related pathways, intracellular events associated intracellular inflammation, and chromatin-modification pathways involvement in antidiabetic activity and their significance.

Book Description :

The immobilized biocatalyst (IMB) is a key component of biotransformation systems that are used to transform substrates to desired products. The impro- ment of biocatalyst properties has a direct influence on the overall effectiveness of the process based on the biotransformation. The basic catalytic characte- stics of biocatalyst that are followed include kinetic properties, pH optima, stability, and inhibition. The investigation of catalytic properties of immobilized enzymes is still a time consuming procedure and is not always simple. In the 1980s, a major effort was made to standardize the rules by which IMB is char- terized. The Working Party of EFB on immobilized biocatalysts has formul- ed principles of individual methods, among them the requirement of kinetic characterization [1]. It was recommended to use a packed-bed reactor, equipped with temperature control and with infinite flow circulation. The system should be equipped with a post-column unit to measure the time-dependence of the product or substrate concentration [2, 3], the most commonly used analytical methods being spectrophotometry, chemiluminiscence, automatic titration, bioluminiscence, chromatography, polarimetry, and biosensors based on the oxygen electrode. There are two main drawbacks to the application of these methods: 1. The need to vary the analytical principles, depending on the chemical and physical-chemical properties of analytes; 2. In some cases, mainly in the study of hydrolytic enzymes, the natural s- strate must be replaced by an artificial one, that is chromolytic, chromogenic, chemiluminiscent, bioluminiscent, or fluorescent.

Both Asia and Africa are home to many plants that can be used for the treatment of many diseases and their medicinal properties are gaining interest in western societies. Medicinal plants from Asia and Africa are used for their healing abilities and also have a symbolic meaning in communities. The importance of traditional autochthonous plant remedies plays a crucial role in the health of millions of people of these two continents. Even today, traditional medicine represents the dominant medical system for millions of people showing a significant impact on health care practices. Therefore, traditional operators still represent a vital part of regional healthcare systems. For this reason, pharmaceutical industries consider traditional medicine as a source for the identification of bioactive compounds that can be used in the preparation of synthetic drugs. Biologically Active Natural Products from Asia and Africa: A Selection of Topics guides the reader to information about new natural products from these regions and the different ways to use them to treat or alleviate many of the most common diseases. The volume presents nine topics covering a number of facets of natural product medicine including: - pharmaceutical analysis of anti-diabetic herbal medicines from Bangladesh and local retailers - caffeine intake and the risk of female infertility - pharmaceutical analysis of Urena sinuata (bur mallow) - anti-CHIKV activities of diterpenes and their derivatives - anti-inflammatory nanogel for the treatment of psoriasis - antlithiatic properties of Moroccan medicinal plants - ethnobotanic, phytochemical and biological activities of Aristolochia longa L. (pipevine) - wound healing potential of combined extracts of stem bark and leaves of sphenocentrum jollyanum (an African shrub) This is a handy reference for specialists and R&D experts in pharmaceutical chemistry who wish to be informed about current knowledge on developing natural remedies in Asia and Africa.
