Phytochemicals content, antioxidant activity and acetylcholinesterase inhibition properties of indigenous Garcinia parvifolia fruit.

Biomed Res Int 2013 31;2013:138950. Epub 2013 Oct 31.

Institute for Tropical Biology and Conservation, Universiti Malaysia Sabah, Jalan UMS, 88400 Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia.

Garcinia parvifolia belongs to the same family as mangosteen (Garcinia mangostana), which is known locally in Sabah as "asam kandis" or cherry mangosteen. The present study was conducted to determine the phytochemicals content (total phenolic, flavonoid, anthocyanin, and carotenoid content) and antioxidant and acetylcholinesterase inhibition activity of the flesh and peel of G. parvifolia.

Molecular diversity of fungal endophytes isolated from Garcinia mangostana and Garcinia parvifolia.

J Microbiol Biotechnol 2010 Apr;20(4):651-8

Department of Biomedical Science, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, University Putra Malaysia, Serdang, Selangor Darul Ehsan, Malaysia.

Garcinia is commonly found in Malaysia, but limited information is available regarding endophytic fungi associated with this plant. In this study, 24 endophytic fungi were successfully recovered from different parts of two Garcinia species. Characterization of endophytic fungi was performed based on the conserved internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region sequence analysis and the antimicrobial properties. Read More

A new benzoquinone derivative from the leaves of Garcinia parvifolia.

Arch Pharm Res 2008 Jan;31(1):17-20

Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science, Prince of Songkla University, Songkhla 90112, Thailand.

Parvifoliquinone (1) was isolated from the leaves of Garcinia parvifolia together with six known compounds: parvifoliols B (2), C (3), E (4), garcidepsidone B (5), nigrolineaisoflavone A (6), and mangostinone (7). The structures were elucidated by spectral analyses. Their antibacterial activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus was evaluated. Read More

In vitro inhibitory effect of rubraxanthone isolated from Garcinia parvifolia on platelet-activating factor receptor binding.

Planta Med 2002 Dec;68(12):1133-4

Department of Pharmacy, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Rubraxanthone and isocowanol isolated from Garcinia parvifolia Miq. were investigated for their inhibitory effects on platelet-activating factor (PAF) binding to rabbit platelets using 3H-PAF as a ligand. Rubraxanthone showed a strong inhibition with IC 50 value of 18. Read More

Xanthones from Garcinia parvifolia.

J Nat Prod 2001 Sep;64(9):1191-5

Department of Chemistry, National University of Singapore, 10 Kent Ridge Crescent, Singapore 119260.

Nine new xanthones, parvixanthones A-I (1-9), isolated from the dried bark of Garcinia parvifolia, were found to have a common 1,3,6,7-oxygenated pattern for their xanthone nucleus, but various oxygenated isoprenyl or geranyl substituent groups. The structures were determined by spectroscopic methods. Read More

Medicinal plants from Riau province, Sumatra, Indonesia. Part 1: Uses.

J Ethnopharmacol 1995 Feb;45(2):75-95

School of Biological Sciences, Queen Mary & Westfield College, London, UK.

One hundred and fourteen species of flowering plants, claimed to have medicinal uses, were recorded from a previously uninvestigated area of Sumatra. Of the specimens, which belonged to 51 families, 50% were used to combat fever, 33% for diarrhoea and 31% for other gastrointestinal problems. External applications were often used to treat internal conditions, particularly fever. Read More
