World’s first OSU scientists suggested to create antibacterial drugs from medicinal plants against the chemical communication between organisms.
The project of Anna Tolmacheva “Resource potential of medicinal plants of the Orenburg region as the source of a new class of compounds — inhibitors of the system, the quorum-sensing bacteria” was supported at the regional level. As the scientist explains, bacterial cells exist in the community like myself and use a complex system of intercellular chemical communication – Quorum sensing (QS) — to better adapt to changing environmental conditions.
QS controls a variety of important processes of vital activity of microorganisms, including such important for Biomedicine, such as the development of factors of virulence (ability to infect) antibiotic resistance and formation of biofilms (microorganisms attached to each other on any surface).
— A group of young scientists experimentally investigated medicinal plants of the Orenburg region as the source of a new class of compounds that suppress the course of physiological and physicochemical processes of bacteria, — says Anna . Were selected 20 medicinal plants that grow in the Orenburg region and used in traditional folk medicine of gleichenia and prevention of infectious diseases: yarrow, bearberry, birch, succession, marigold, celandine, Continue reading
Flowering plants of couch grass reach a height of over one meter, and form a continuous thickets. The leaves of couch-grass, flat, dark green, linear with sheaths. Flowers, like all grasses, inconspicuous. They are collected in spikes in 4-7 pieces, the cones in turn to form a long apical spikes up to 15 cm Fruit – caryopsis, similar to wheat, up to a half centimeter.
Wheat grass blooms in may-June, fruits in July-September.
This plant is found throughout Europe, Asia, avoiding only the deserts and dark forests, although it can grow on forest edges and glades, but mostly couch grass inhabits meadows, fields, fallow lands, gardens. Its modern Latin name Elytrigia repens.
Procurement and quality of raw materials
Wheatgrass rhizomes are best harvested in the autumn or spring digging area, at this time they contain the maximum quantity of active ingredients. Having dug out, they harvested from the soil, cleaned of residues of stems and leaves. Dried, laying a thin layer. If the weather is hot, dry wheat grass directly in the sun. After drying the rhizomes are put Continue reading
