These facts suggest that they have the potential to stabilize biological radicals and to inhibit the generation of reactive oxygen species, which could contribute to reducing the oxidative stress caused by them and therefore to avoiding the DNA damage.

litzea DMSO did not exceed 0. F6 murine B-cell lymphoma was provided by Dr. Significance level in Type I error was. Their positive health benefits are associated with the presence of chemical compounds derived from secondary metabolism, such as phenolic compounds, essential oils, terpenes, saponins, alkaloids, and polypeptides, which are used by plants as part of their defense mechanisms [ 1112 ].

From the results reported here, the antioxidant activity was the strongest one and clearly dependent on the season.

Although all the extracts had strong antioxidant activity, the results presented here demonstrated that during the winter the capacity of L. As can be observed, there is a clear effect of the litssea of both on their antimicrobial activity. On the other hand, antimicrobial resistance is the result of antibiotic misuse, which conduces to stronger infections with complicated clinical treatments like respiratory tract infections, rhinosinusitis, otitis media, cystic fibrosis lung infection, dental caries, and chronic wounds, among others [ 56 ].

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. On the other hand, Cushnie and Lamb [ 6667 ] have concluded that phenolic compounds have different mechanism of action as antimicrobial, such as inhibitors of nucleic acid synthesis, of the energy metabolism, or of the cytoplasmic membrane function of the microorganisms.
