Abstract: the fractionation of the antioxidant ethyl acetate extract obtained from the dried leaves of chrysophyllum marginatum afforded six substances identified as: a-amirin, gallic acid, myricitrin, quercitrin, (-)-epigallocatechin and (-)-epigallocatechin-3-o-gallate. this study contributes to the knowledge of the secondary metabolites produced by one more species of the brazilian flora, until now not investigated. moreover, this study allowed the identification of three substances with antioxidant activity previously detected in this species.

Abstract: the object of this study was to describe the embryo, endosperm and integument development of chrysophyllum gonocarpum (mart. & eichl.) engl. seed. the ovule is hemitropous, with embryo development being of the caryophyllad type and the endosperm of the nuclear type. the mature embryo presents a short and cylindrical hypocotyl-radicle axis with foliaceous cotyledons. the mature seed stores aleurone grains and lipids in the cotyledons and in the remaining endosperm cells. the exotesta is composed of several layers of sclerenchymatous cells, also present in the hilum region. this exotesta feature is registered for the first time in chrysophyllum seeds and might have ecological and taxonomic implications.

Abstract: phenological patterns of chrysophyllum gonocarpum (mart. & eichler) engl. were investigated from may 1995 to december 1997 in a tropical semideciduous forest in southern brazil (23o27' s and 51o15' w). forty trees were monthly observed for changes on leaf fall and flushing, flowering, and fruiting. the leaf fall occurred in the dry period while leaf flushing, flowering and dispersion occurred at the beginning of the wet season. except fruiting, all phenophases were highly synchronized. the majority of individuals flowered annually, although they did not fruit annually. leaf fall was negatively associated with rainfall and temperature and flowering was positively associated with daylength.

Indian Journal of Dermatology, Venereology and Leprology , 1995,
Abstract: A case of 38-year-old male with multiple keratoacanthoma centrifugum marginatum is reported. Clinical presentation was in the form of multiple, firm, non-tender skin coloured nodules of variable sizes. Diagnosis was confirmed by the histopathological examination. The case is being reported because it is a rare variant of keratoacanthoma

Abstract: Keratoacanthoma centrifugum marginatum (KCM) is a rare variant of keratoacanthoma (KA). It is characterized by a progressive peripheral expansion and central healing leaving atrophic scar. It is sometimes confused with squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) both clinically and histopathologically. We here report a case of KCM over the extensor aspect of the right forearm in a 57-year-old man with an abnormal looking scar. 1. Introduction Keratoacanthoma (KA) is a rare benign epidermal tumour, usually diagnosed clinically, and histopathological examination confirms the diagnosis. Most lesions are classical solitary but few unusual rare variants are also described. Keratoacanthoma centrifugum marginatum (KCM) is a rare variant of solitary KA with a clinical course of centrifugal expansion and central restitution or scarring [1]. The cause is unknown but proposed association with UV radiation, chemical exposure, and viral infection has been reported [2]. We hereby report a case of KCM with atypical scar for its rarity and highlight its relationship with SCC. 2. Case Report A 57-year-old male, a farmer by profession, presented in the dermatology OPD with a large plaque extending from below the right elbow onto the extensor aspect of the forearm. The lesion started as an asymptomatic nodule on a normal looking skin and attained its present state over the past 1 year by peripheral spreading and central healing. Nodular ulcerated margin was seen on the proximal and distal aspects in an arciform manner (Figure 1). The whitish intervening scar was traversed in its entire width by narrow strips of a normal looking skin. He was also treated with antitubercular medications from outside without any benefit. General survey, systemic examination, and routine laboratory investigations did not reveal any abnormality. Chest X-ray was normal. The Mantoux test and the screening for HIV were negative. A provisional diagnosis of KCM was made. Histopathological examination of a skin biopsy specimen from the raised margin revealed a huge pitcher like crater extending symmetrically across the upper dermis surrounded by epidermis on all sides (Figure 2). A keratin plug is seen at the bottom of the crater with a dense mixed inflammatory cell infiltrate in the dermis immediately adjacent to the crater (Figure 3). No cellular atypia or involvement of the deep dermis is seen. Based on the above clinical and histopathological findings diagnosis of KCM was made. The patient was referred to the plastic surgery department for excision and grafting. Figure 1: A plaque with nodular ulcerated

Abstract: Chrysophyllum perpulchrum (Sapotaceae) is used in the traditional Ivory Coast pharmacopeia to cure fevers. The extract of C. perpulchrum used for this study was the powdered form obtained from the maceration of the dried plant bark in 96% methanol, followed by evaporation to dryness. In the present study, the antioxidative and radical-scavenging activities of the methanolic extract were studied with three standard biological tests: DPPH reduction, ferric thiocyanate (FTC) lipidic peroxidation inhibition and thiobarbituric acid reacting substances (TBARS). Gallic acid and quercetin were used as references. The total amount of phenolic compounds in the extract was determined by ultraviolet (UV) spectrometry and calculated as gallic acid equivalents. Catechin and two dimeric procyanidins were found to be the compounds responsible for the activities. They were chemically dereplicated in the extract by LC-MS. For quantitation purposes, they were isolated by successive chromatographic methods and characterized by mass spectrometry (MS) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometry. The quantities of these compounds in C. perpulchrum were 5.4% for catechin (P1), and 5.6 and 9.2% for dimers (compounds 2 (P2) and 3 (P3)), respectively. They displayed antioxidant activity with IC50 values of 2.50 ± 0.15 μg/mL (P1), 2.10 ± 0.2 μg/mL (P2) and 2.10 ± 0.1 μg/mL (P3). The total extract, the active fractions and the pure compounds inhibited the lipid peroxidation by the FTC method and the TBARS method in the range of 60%. These values were comparable to those seen for quercetin.

Iranian Journal of Parasitology , 2010,
Abstract: Background: Rhipicephalus sanguineus and Hyalomma marginatum are the most common spe-cies in sheep herds in Northeast of Iran. There is preliminary evidence that these species may be the vectors of Babesia ovis in Iran. We carried out two experiments in Mashhad area, Khorasan Razavi Province to determine whether B. ovis could be transovarially transmitted by R. san-guineus and H. marginatum.Methods: In experiment 1, adults of laboratory reared H. marginatum and R.sanguineus were infected with B. ovis isolated from naturally infected sheep in Mashhad area by feeding the ticks on the sheep inoculated intravenously by infected blood samples. The inoculated sheep showed clinical signs with parasitaemia while the adult ticks were engorging on them. The engorged fe-males were collected and kept at 28°C and 85% relative humidity in incubator. Then, larval, nym-phal and adult stages derived from engorged females were used to infest the clean sheep. In experiment 2, two splenectomized sheep were infested only with the same adult ticks of two spe-cies.Results: Examination of smears and PCR of blood samples to detect of B. ovis in infested sheep in two experiments were negative.Conclusion: It seems that R. sanguineus and H. marginatum can not transovarially transmit B. ovis in sheep.
