The genus was named after the Greek mythological character Achilles. The extract of Achillea fragrantissima Afwhich is a desert plant that has been used for many years in traditional medicine for the treatment of various diseases, was the most efficient extract, and was further studied for additional anti-neuroinflammatory effects in these cells. Achillea Asteraceae fragramtissima Taxa named by Carl Linnaeus.

NO levels secreted by the activate cells were measured using Griess reagent, ROS levels were measured by 2’7′-dichlorofluorescein diacetate DCF-DAMMP-9 activity was measured using gel zymography, and the protein levels of the proinflammatory enzymes cyclooxygenase-2 COX-2 and induced nitric oxide synthase iNOS were measured by Western blot analysis. During the neuroinflammatory process, microglial cells release proinflammatory fragrantisslma such as cytokines, matrix metalloproteinases MMPReactive oxygen species ROS and nitric oxide NO.


Retrieved from ” https: The acjillea is native primarily to Europetemperate areas of Asiaand North America. According to legend, Achilles’ soldiers used yarrow to treat their wounds, [6] hence some of its common names such as fragrantissija and bloodwort.

Cell viability was assessed using Lactate dehydrogenase LDH activity in the media conditioned by the cells or by the crystal violet cell staining.

These plants typically have frilly, hairy, aromatic leaves. A number of species – notably A. In the present study, extracts from 66 different desert plants were tested for their effect on lipopolysaccharide LPS – induced production of NO by primary microglial cells.

In other projects Wikimedia Commons Wikispecies. Achillea species are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species – see list of Lepidoptera that feed on Achillea. Sources differ widely as to which of these should be recognized as species which ones merit subspecies or variety status, and which ones should be relegated to the dustbin of synonymy.

This page was last edited on 30 Mayat The neuroinflammatory process plays a central role in the initiation and progression of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases, and involves the activation of brain microglial cells.

In the present study, the ethanolic extract prepared from Af was tested for its anti-inflammatory effects on lipopolysaccharide LPS -activated achollea cultures of brain microglial cells. Nearly 1, names have been published within fragrrantissima genus Achilleaat or below the level of species.
