About SerpentinaDB

Rauvolfia serpentina is an important medicinal plant endemic to the Indian subcontinent and South-East Asian countries. Its extracts are reported to be of therapeutic value against various diseases (including hypertension, intestinal disorders, eye diseases, cuts, wounds, splenic disease, uterine contraction, headache, and skin diseases) and associated with a broad range of therapeutic effects. SerpentinaDB is an exhaustive resource of R. serpentina molecules to facilitate prospection for therapeutic molecules from this medicinally important source of natural products. We have demonstrated the utility of SerpentinaDB for rational search of therapeutic molecules by identifying novel aldose reductase inhibitors towards intervention of complications of diabetes (Pathania S, Randhawa V, Bagler G (2013) PLoS ONE 8(4): e61327).
