Isolation of flavonoids from the heartwood and resin of Prunus avium and some preliminary biological investigations

, : Isolation of flavonoids from the heartwood and resin of Prunus avium and some preliminary biological investigations. Phytochemistry 70(17-18): 2040-2046

An investigation of the constituents in heartwood and resin of Prunus avium is reported. A mini-library of structurally diverse flavanones and flavones was screened for human cytochrome P450 1A1, 3A4 and 19 (aromatase) inhibition, and for antifungal activity against a panel of pathogenic fungi. The defensive role of these natural plant flavonoids as antifungal phytoalexins and phytoanticipins is discussed.

High pressure processing (HPP) can inactivate pathogens and retain fruit qualities. Elevated HPP pressure or time increases virus inactivation, but the effect of temperature is not consistently observed for norovirus and hepatitis A virus. In the...
