Phytother Res. 1999 Dec;13(8):680-2. Unique Identifier : AIDSLINE

With the aim of finding novel anti-human immunodeficiency virus agents from natural products, 93 MeOH extracts of Korean plants were screened for their inhibitory activities against HIV-1 protease. The most potent inhibition was shown by the root of Rodiola rosea with 70.4% inhibition at a concentration of 100 microg/mL. Copyright 1999 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
