      J. Sep. Sci. 43, 2477-2486 (2020). HPTLC of urea produced by arginase as a bioautographic method for the detection of arginase inhibitors in Myrtus communis on silica gel with ethyl acetate - methanol - water - formic acid 800:100:100:1. Detection by spraying with arginase solution (50 U in 3 mL of a buffer containing Tris–HCl 50 mM, pH 7.5 and 0.1 % of BSA), followed by spraying with 3 mL of L-arginine solution (200 mM, pH 9.7) and incubation at 37 ºC for 60 min. Visualization by spraying with 3 mL of sulfuric acid - phosphoric acid - water 2:7:91 and 2 mL of alpha-isonitrosopropiophenone solution (5% in absolute ethanol) followed by heating at 100 ºC for 1h. The hRF value for the inhibitor N-trans-caffeoyltyramine was 27. Sensitiviy was estimated for the arginase inhibitor Nω-hydroxy-nor-Arginine (nor-NOHA), resulting in a LOD of 0.1 µg/zone.

      Phytochem. Anal. 30, 679-686(2019). HPTLC-Acetylcholinesterase bioassay of cherimoya fruits on silica gel with the enzyme substrate 1‐naphthyl acetate (1.5 mg/mL). Enzymatic solution was sprayed (1 U/mL in 50 mM Tris–HCl buffers at pH 7.8), followed by incubation at 37 ºC for 10 min. A Fast Blue B salt aqueous solution (1.0 mg/mL), freshly prepared, was sprayed onto the plate to obtain a purple background. Further analysis by HPTLC-MS allowed the characterization of three potential AChE inhibitors: anonaine, glaucine and xylopine.
