What is it about?

In vitro and in vivo effects of different types of thioglycosides were thoroughly investigated. The obtained results were confirmed by studying the mode of binding by docking studies.

Why is it important?

Our finding show that the inhibition of α-glucosidase is accompanied by an oxidative stress action.
