In the present study, the ethanolic extract prepared from Af was tested for its anti-inflammatory effects on lipopolysaccharide LPS -activated primary cultures of brain microglial cells. Cell viability was assessed using Lactate dehydrogenase LDH activity in the media conditioned by the cells or by the crystal violet cell staining.


Achillea species are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species – see list of Lepidoptera that feed on Achillea.

In the present study, extracts from axhillea different desert plants were tested for their effect on lipopolysaccharide LPS – induced production of NO by primary microglial cells.

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.

NO levels secreted by the activate cells were measured using Griess achilpea, 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 achillra Western blot analysis.

The fragrzntissima 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.

During the neuroinflammatory process, microglial cells release proinflammatory mediators such as cytokines, matrix metalloproteinases MMPReactive oxygen species ROS and nitric oxide NO.

Anti-neuroinflammatory effects of the extract of Achillea fragrantissima.

The plants show large, fragraantissima clusters of small flowers at the top of the stem. The flowers can be white, yellow, orange, pink or red and are generally visited by many insects, and are thus characterised by a generalised pollination system.
