author keywords: antibiotics; Interleukins; organoids
TL;DR: It is concluded that epigallocatechin gallate is a potential PA monomer with all prebiotic characteristics and its applicable values in feedstuff and food supply should be studied in vivo studies in domestic (food) animals with and without antigen challenges. (via Semantic Scholar)

Metabolic engineering of the anthocyanin biosynthetic pathway in Artemisia annua and relation to the expression of the artemisinin biosynthetic pathway

PLANTA, 257(3).

By: R. Judd n, Y. Dong n, X. Sun n, Y. Zhu n, M. Li n & D. Xie n

author keywords: Anthocyanin; Artemisinin; Artemisinic acid; Arteannuin b; Artemisia annua; Plant tissue culture
MeSH headings : Artemisia annua / chemistry; Anthocyanins / metabolism; Biosynthetic Pathways; Metabolic Engineering; Reactive Oxygen Species / metabolism; Tandem Mass Spectrometry; Artemisinins / chemistry; Artemisinins / metabolism
TL;DR: The engineering of anthocyanins does not eliminate the biosynthesis of artemisinin in cells and a new hypothesis that enzymes catalyze the formation of art Artemisinin from dihydroartemisinic acid in non-GT cells is proposed. (via Semantic Scholar)

<p>Flavonols and dihydroflavonols inhibit the main protease activity of SARS-CoV-2 and the replication of human coronavirus 229E</p>

VIROLOGY, 571, 21–33.

By: Y. Zhu n, F. Scholle n, S. Kisthardt n & D. Xie n

author keywords: (+)-dihydrokaempferol; <p>(+)-dihydroquercetin (taxifolin)</p>; (+)-dihydromyricetin; Kaempferol; Quercetin; Myricentin; Isoquercitrin; Rutin; Flavan-3-ols
MeSH headings : COVID-19; Coronavirus 229E, Human / drug effects; Coronavirus 229E, Human / physiology; Coronavirus 3C Proteases / antagonists & inhibitors; Flavonols / pharmacology; Humans; Molecular Docking Simulation; SARS-CoV-2 / drug effects; Virus Replication / drug effects
TL;DR: In vitro inhibition assays showed that seven available compounds effectively inhibited the SARS-CoV-2 Mpro activity and their IC50 values ranged from 0.125 to 12.9 µM, which indicates that these antioxidative flavonols and dihydroflavonols are promising candidates for curbing the two viruses.

Docking Characterization and in vitro Inhibitory Activity of Flavan-3-ols and Dimeric Proanthocyanidins Against the Main Protease Activity of SARS-Cov-2

Frontiers in Plant Science, 11.

By: Y. Zhu n & D. Xie n

author keywords: flavan-3-ols; flavan-3-ol gallates; procyanidins; COVID-19; green tea; muscadine grape; cacao; dark chocolate
TL;DR: The findings indicate that on the one hand, the structural features of flavan-3-ols are closely associated with the affinity scores; on the otherhand, the galloylation and oligomeric types of flavours are critical in creating the inhibitory activity against the Mpro activity.
