1.Ruta graveolens Extracts and Metabolites against Spodoptera frugiperda.
Ayil-Gutiérrez BA, Villegas-Mendoza JM, Santes-Hernndez Z, Paz-González AD, Mireles-Martínez M, Rosas-García NM, Rivera G. Nat Prod Commun. 2015 Nov;10(11):1955-8.
The biological activity of Ruta graveolens leaf tissue extracts obtained with different solvents (ethyl acetate, ethanol, and water) and metabolites (psoralen, 2- undecanone and rutin) against Spodoptera frugiperda was evaluated. Metabolites levels in extracts were quantified by HPLC and GC. Ethyl acetate and ethanol extracts showed 94% and 78% mortality, respectively. Additionally, psoralen metabolite showed a high mortality as cypermethrin. Metabolite quantification in extracts shows the presence of 2-undecanone (87.9 µmoles mg(-1) DW), psoralen (3.6 µmoles mg(-1) DW) and rutin (0.001 pmoles mg(-1) DW). We suggest that these concentrations of 2-undecanone and psoralen in R. graveolens leaf tissue extracts could be responsible for S. frugiperda mortality.
2.Essential oils from Zanthoxylum fagara Wild Lime, Ruta chalepensis L. and Thymus vulgaris L.: Composition and activity against Aedes aegypti larvae.
Pérez López LA1, de la Torre YC1, Cirio AT1, de Torres NW1, Flores Suárez AE2, Aranda RS1. Pak J Pharm Sci. 2015 Sep;28(5 Suppl):1911-5.
The dengue virus is transmitted by Aedes aegypti. Several plants are used to control this mosquito. In the present study the chemical composition of the essential oils of Ruta chalepensis, Zanthoxylum fagara and Thymus vulgaris were analyzed, and their activities against larvae of two A. aegypti populations were evaluated. The major compounds found in T. vulgaris were thymol and -cymene at 39.8% and 30.5%, respectively, with the major components being oxygenated monoterpenes and monoterpene hydrocarbons at 55.5% and 40.4%, respectively. For Z. fagara, the major compounds were sylvestrene and E-caryophyllene at 25.3% and 23.6%, respectively, with the major components being sesquiterpene and monoterpene hydrocarbons at 51.1% and 37.5%, respectively. Ketones were the predominant group of compounds found in R. chalepensis, with the major components being 2-undecanone and 2-nonanona at 43.7% and 35.4%, respectively. Essential oils from T. vulgaris, Z.
3.Comparative study of aromatic compounds in fruit wines from raspberry, strawberry, and mulberry in central Shaanxi area.
Feng Y1, Liu M1, Ouyang Y1, Zhao X1, Ju Y1, Fang Y1,2. Food Nutr Res. 2015 Nov 27;59:29290. doi: 10.3402/fnr.v59.29290. eCollection 2015.
BACKGROUND: Although grape wines have firmly dominated the production and consumption markets of fruit wines, raspberry, strawberry, and mulberry have been utilized to make wines because of their joyful aroma and high contents of polyphenolic phytochemicals and essential fatty acids. However, little is known about aromatic compounds of the wines produced from these three fruits.
4.Chemical composition and larvicidal activity of Zanthoxylum armatum against diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella.
Kumar V1, Reddy SG2, Chauhan U2, Kumar N1, Singh B1. Nat Prod Res. 2016 Mar;30(6):689-92. doi: 10.1080/14786419.2015.1036270. Epub 2015 Apr 29.
The diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella (L.) (Lepidoptera: Yponomeutidae) is the most serious pest of cruciferous crops grown in the world causing economic yield loss. Several synthetic insecticides have been used against P. xylostella but satisfactory control was not achieved due to development of resistance to insecticides. Therefore, the present study was carried out to screen different fractions of Zanthoxylum armatum for their insecticidal activities against second instar larvae of P. xylostella. Results indicate, all the fractions showed activity to P. xylostella. However, n-hexane fraction of Z. armatum showed maximum larvicidal activity with minimum LC50 value of 2988.6 ppm followed by ethanol (LC50 = 12779.7 ppm) and methanol fraction (LC50 = 12908.8 ppm) whereas chloroform fraction was least toxic (LC50 = 16750.6 ppm). The GC-MS analysis of n-hexane fraction of leaf extract showed maximum larvicidal activity, which may be due to two major compounds i.
