- ... Clausena lansium (Lour.) Skeels is a fruit tree as well as medicinal plant. Its bark was selected as a raw material for extracting condensed tannins. In this study, the anti-α-glucosidase and antityrosinase activity, antiproliferative and apoptotic properties in B16 mouse melanoma cells of condensed tannins from Clausena lansium bark (CBCTs) were evaluated. The results confirmed that CBCTs greatly ...

- ... An ecofriendly process based on an enzyme-assisted extraction coupled with ultrasound extraction was proposed to obtain soluble bioactive fractions from Sargassum muticum. Whole algae (Sm) and residual algae from alginate production (AESm) were employed as feedstock. Aqueous enzyme treatment with commercial complex enzyme formulations or with mixture of enzymes lead to maximum solubilization yield ...
