Phytochemical analysis of the extract revealed the presence of three compounds, namely, wedelolactone, luteolin, and apigenin.
Among the flavonoids, luteolin (37,4,,5,7-tetrahydroxyflavone) and apigenin (4',5,7,-trihydroxyflavone) (Figure 1) are reportedly important functional components, which exhibit the pharmacological effects.
The 6-hydroxy-2,5,7,8-tetraethyl-2-carboxylic acid (trolox), 2,2'-azino-bis(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) diammonium salt radical ([ABTS.sup.*+]), 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydracyl radical ([DPPH.sup.*]), potassium persulfate, Folin-Ciocalteau reagent and standards (gallic acid, caffeic acid, catechin, chlorogenic acid, epicatechin, rutin, resveratrol, luteolin, and ascorbic acid) were obtained from Sigma-Aldrich Co.
Luteolin as an antiinflammatory and anti-allergic constituent of Perilla frutescens.
Luteolin (3', 4', 5, 7-tetrahydroxyflavone) is found in carrot, pepper, celery, peppermint, thyme, rosemary, oregano, lettuce, artichoke, pomegranate, chocolate, turnip and cucumber (27).
They found that pomegranate compounds (luteolin, punicic acid, and ellagic acid) significantly inhibited the growth and spread of highly invasive prostate tumors.
The protective and therapeutic effects of flavonoids such as kaempferol, quercetin, luteolin, and apigenin have been reported (8).
The researchers investigated existing research on natural compounds with anticancer potential such as luteolin (found in many herbs and vegetables), curcumin (found in turmeric), capsaicin (chili pepper extract) and rutin (plentiful in apples, figs and citrus fruits), among many others.
The compounds are Loasifolin (1), Eremoside A (2), Eremoside B (3), Kaempferol (3,4',5,7-tetrahydroxyflavone) (4), 5-Hydroxy-6,7,8,4'-tetramethoxyflavone (5), 5-Hydroxy-3',4',6,7,8-pentamethoxyflavone (6), Apigenin (4',5,7-trihydroxyflavone) (7), Luteolin (3',4',5,7-tetrahydroxy-flavone) (8), Apigenin 7-O-[beta]-D-glucopyranose (9) 4'-Methyl Kaempferol (3,5,6-trihydroxy-4methoxy flavone) (10) 5-Hydroxy-7,4-dimethoxy flavones (11), 6,7-Dime-thoxy-4,5-hydroxyflavone (12) and 3,5,7-Trihydroxy-3',4'-dimethoxyflavone (13).The structures of all isolated compounds are showed in Fig.
Stimulation of skeletal muscle cells by LPS leads to the production and secretion of cytokines and other inflammatory mediators, and subsequently promotes a proinflammatory response.[25] Dandelion has been widely used as a traditional medicine against various disorders.[26],[27] It has been found the phenolic compounds in dandelion including: luteolin, chrysoeriol, chicoric acid, and chlorogenic acid.[6] Among them, luteolin and chicoric acid are the most abundant phenolic compounds.
(28), while the majority of anthocyanin, cyanidin-3-O-galactoside, and cyanidin-3-O-glucoside components were found in the shell of the Urfa pistachio nut, the epicatechin, aglycones, quercetin, naringenin, luteolin, and kaempferol were determined only in the shell.
