          Abstract

          Este trabalho teve como objetivos avaliar a composição química do óleo essencial de Baccharis tridentata Vahl, as atividades antioxidante e fungitóxica, e estudar a morfologia das estruturas secretoras do óleo essencial presentes na superfície foliar por meio de microscopia eletrônica de varredura (MEV). A extração do óleo essencial foi realizada por hidrodestilação, as análises quantitativas e qualitativas foram executadas por meio de cromatografia em fase gasosa com detector de ionização de chamas (FID) e acoplada à espectrometria de massas, respectivamente. A atividade antioxidante foi realizada empregando-se os métodos de redução do radical estável DPPH e o ensaio de oxidação do sistema β-caroteno/ácido linoleico. As atividades fungitóxicas foram avaliadas utilizando o teste bioanalítico in vitro, sobre a inibição do crescimento micelial dos fitopatógenos Fusarium oxysporum, Colletotrichum gloeosporioides e Rhizoctonia solani. A composição química revelou a presença de 28 compostos, sendo o α-tujeno (22,93%) o constituinte majoritário; não foi observada atividade antioxidante por meio dos ensaios utilizados, no entanto, observou-se atividade fungitóxica sobre o crescimento micelial dos fitopatógenos estudados. Já os estudos da superfície foliar por MEV revelaram a presença de tricomas glandulares em ambas as superfícies abaxial e adaxial.

          This study aimed to evaluate the chemical composition and the antioxidant and fungitoxic activities of Baccharis tridentata essential oil, as well as to study the morphology of its secretory structures present on the leaf surface by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The essential oil was extracted by hydrodistillation; the quantitative and qualitative analyses were performed on a gas chromatograph equipped with a flame ionization detector (FID) and coupled to a mass spectrometer, respectively. The antioxidant activity was determined by the methods of reduction of the DPPH stable radical and oxidation of the β-carotene/linoleic acid system. Fungitoxic activities were assessed by the in vitro bioanalytical test on the inhibition of the mycelial growth of the plant pathogens Fusarium oxysporum, Colletotrichum gloeosporioides and Rhizoctonia solani. The chemical composition revealed the presence of 28 compounds, with α-thujene (22.93%) as the major constituent. No antioxidant activity was observed in the tests used; however, there was fungitoxic activity against the mycelial growth of plant pathogens. Leaf surface studies by SEM revealed the presence of glandular trichomes on both abaxial and adaxial surfaces.

            Screening of chemical composition, antimicrobial and antioxidant activities of Artemisia essential oils.

            The chemical composition of essential oils isolated from aerial parts of seven wild sages from Western Canada -Artemisia absinthium L., Artemisia biennis Willd., Artemisia cana Pursh, Artemisia dracunculus L., Artemisia frigida Willd., Artemisia longifolia Nutt. and Artemisia ludoviciana Nutt., was investigated by GC-MS. A total of 110 components were identified accounting for 71.0-98.8% of the oil composition. High contents of 1,8-cineole (21.5-27.6%) and camphor (15.9-37.3%) were found in Artemisia cana, A. frigida, A. longifolia and A. ludoviciana oils. The oil of A. ludoviciana was also characterized by a high content of oxygenated sesquiterpenes with a 5-ethenyltetrahydro-5-methyl-2-furanyl moiety, of which davanone (11.5%) was the main component identified. A. absinthium oil was characterized by high amounts of myrcene (10.8%), trans-thujone (10.1%) and trans-sabinyl acetate (26.4%). A. biennis yielded an oil rich in (Z)-beta-ocimene (34.7%), (E)-beta-farnesene (40.0%) and the acetylenes (11.0%) (Z)- and (E)-en-yn-dicycloethers. A. dracunculus oil contained predominantly phenylpropanoids such as methyl chavicol (16.2%) and methyl eugenol (35.8%). Artemisia oils had inhibitory effects on the growth of bacteria (Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, and Staphylococcus epidermidis), yeasts (Candida albicans, Cryptococcus neoformans), dermatophytes (Trichophyton rubrum, Microsporum canis, and Microsporum gypseum), Fonsecaea pedrosoi and Aspergillus niger. A. biennis oil was the most active against dermatophytes, Cryptococcus neoformans, Fonsecaea pedrosoi and Aspergillus niger, and A. absinthium oil the most active against Staphylococcus strains. In addition, antioxidant (beta-carotene/linoleate model) and 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging activities were determined, and weak activities were found for these oils.

              Intake of butylated hydroxyanisole and butylated hydroxytoluene and stomach cancer risk: results from analyses in the Netherlands Cohort Study.

              Both carcinogenic and anticarcinogenic properties have been reported for the synthetic antioxidants butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) and butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT). The association between dietary intake of BHA and BHT and stomach cancer risk was investigated in the Netherlands Cohort Study (NLCS) that started in 1986 among 120,852 men and women aged 55 to 69 years. A semi-quantitative food frequency questionnaire was used to assess food consumption. Information on BHA or BHT content of cooking fats, oils, mayonnaise and other creamy salad dressings and dried soups was obtained by chemical analysis, a Dutch database of food additives (ALBA) and the Dutch Compendium of Foods and Diet Products. After 6.3 years of follow-up, complete data on BHA and BHT intake of 192 incident stomach cancer cases and 2035 subcohort members were available for case-cohort analysis. Mean intake of BHA or BHT among subcohort members was 105 and 351 microg/day, respectively. For consumption of mayonnaise and other creamy salad dressings with BHA or BHT no association with stomach cancer risk was observed. A statistically non-significant decrease in stomach cancer risk was observed with increasing BHA and BHT intake [rate ratio (RR) highest/lowest intake of BHA = 0.57 (95% confidence interval (CI): 0.25-1.30] and BHT = 0.74 (95% CI: 0.38-1.43). In this study, no significant association with stomach cancer risk was found for usual intake of low levels of BHA and BHT.
