- ... BACKGROUND: α-glucosidase is a therapeutic target for diabetes mellitus (DM) and α-glucosidase inhibitors play a vital role in the treatments for the disease. Furthermore, xanthine oxidase (XO) is a key enzyme that catalyzes hypoxanthine and xanthine to uric acid which at high levels can lead to hyperuricemia which is an important cause of gout. Pancreatic lipase (PL) secreted into the duodenum pl ...

- ... In this study, headspace solid-phase microextraction coupled to GC–MS was applied to identify the volatile bioactive compounds in the leaves of Feijoa sellowiana growing in Tunisia. Thirty-one components were identified, representing 99.9% of the total volatiles. The major constituents were limonene (36.2%), β-caryophyllene (27.8%), aromadendrene (12.5%), and α-copaene (6.6%). Also, the F. sellowi ...

- ... Recent decades have witnessed a sharp increase in the incidence and prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus. One antidiabetic therapeutic approach is to reduce gastrointestinal glucose production and absorption through the inhibition of carbohydrate-digesting enzymes such as α-amylase and α-glucosidase. In this study, crude extracts and their corresponding fractions of flowers, fruits, (stems and l ...
