BACKGROUND: Skin forms an important part of human innate immune system. Wrinkles, thinning and roughening of skin are some of the symptoms that affect the skin as it ages. Reactive oxygen species induced oxidative stress plays a major role in skin aging by modulating the elastase enzyme level in the skin. Extrinsic factors that affect skin aging such as UV radiation can also cause malignant melanoma. Here we selected four medicinal plant materials, namely, leaves of Nyctanthes arbor-tristis, unripe and ripe Aegle marmelos fruit pulp and the terminal meristem of Musa paradisiaca flower and investigated their anti-aging properties and cytotoxicity in vitro individually as well as in a poly herbal formulation containing the four plant extracts in different ratios...

UNLABELLED: The cytotoxic compound Altersolanol A, an anthraquinone derivative was isolated from PM0409092 a fungus of Nyctanthes arbor-tristis (family Oleaceae). It was identified as a Phomopsis sp. by DNA amplification and sequencing of the ITS region. The chemical structure of Altersolanol A was elucidated from its physicochemical properties, 2D NMR spectroscopy and other spectroscopic data. The compound has in vitro cytotoxic activity against 34 human cancer cell lines with mean IC50 (IC70) values of 0...

The flowers of Nyctanthes arbor-tristis showed interesting antibacterial activity against some gram-positive and gram-negative microorganisms (chloroform and ethyl acetate extracts) and significant cytotoxic activity (petroleum ether, chloroform and ethyl acetate extracts).
