International Association for Plant Taxonomy. Achillea species are used as food plants by fragrantisssima larvae of some Lepidoptera species – see list of Lepidoptera that feed on Achillea.
Retrieved from ” https: Achillea Asteraceae genera Taxa named by Carl Linnaeus.
Nearly 1, names have been published within the genus Achilleaat or below the level of species. 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.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. These plants typically have frilly, hairy, aromatic leaves. During the neuroinflammatory process, microglial cells release proinflammatory mediators such as achollea, matrix metalloproteinases MMPReactive oxygen species ROS and nitric oxide NO.

Silvery Yarrow Achillea clavenae. Views Read Edit Fragratnissima history. The genus was named after the Greek mythological character Achilles. The neuroinflammatory 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.

Sweet Yarrow Achillea ageratum. Fragrntissima extract of Achillea fragrantissima Afwhich is a desert plant that has been used for many years in traditional medicine for the treatment of various diseases, was the most efficient extract, and was further studied for additional anti-neuroinflammatory effects in these cells. According to legend, Achilles’ soldiers used yarrow to treat their wounds,  hence some of its common names such as allheal and bloodwort. NO levels secreted by the activate cells were measured using Griess reagent, ROS levels were measured by 2’7′-dichlorofluorescein diacetate DCF-DAMMP-9 activity was measured using acillea zymography, and the protein levels of the proinflammatory enzymes cyclooxygenase-2 COX-2 and induced nitric oxide synthase iNOS were measured by Western blot analysis.
Anti-neuroinflammatory effects of the extract of Achillea fragrantissima.
Fernleaf Yarrow Achillea filipendula. The plants show large, flat clusters of small flowers at the top of the stem. In the present study, extracts from 66 different desert plants were tested for their effect on lipopolysaccharide LPS – induced production of NO by primary microglial cells.
In the fragrantissjma study, the ethanolic extract prepared from Af was tested for its anti-inflammatory effects on lipopolysaccharide LPS -activated primary cultures of brain microglial cells.
