The activity of thymidylate synthase (TS) purified in our laboratory from Lactobacillus leichmannii was inhibited by pergularinine (PGL) and tylophorinidine (TPD) and deoxytubulosine (DTB) isolated from the Indian medicinal plants Pergularia pallida and Alangium lamarckii respectively. Cytotoxicity
A total alkaloid and two purified alkaloid extracts of Alangium vitiense were found to be oncostatic for L1210 leukemia; the total alkaloid exerted a noticeable activity, and the purified extracts exerted a borderline activity. These two purified extracts are noticeably oncostatic for two other
A total alkaloid and two purified alkaloid extracts of Alangium Vitiense were revealed by our experimental screening to be oncostatic on L1210 leukemia and two other lymphoid neoplasias in Mice. They are not active on myelomonocytoid leukemia WEHI3 nor on B16 melanoma.
