Chromosomal fragile sites that are inducible by methotrexate and aphidicolin are frequent in the human population. To assess the frequency and distribution of these common fragile sites, we performed a cytogenetic survey on lymphocytes from subjec...

In this study, some depsidones and diaryl ether derivatives isolated from Corynespora cassicola, a fungi endophyte of Gongronema latifolium, were assessed for their anti-inflammatory potentials. The isolated metabolites corynesidone A (1), corynes...
