  1. Natural product extracts chemical library


  1. Library Source
    ICCB-Longwood Screening Facility (HMS)
  2. Resource Description
    384-well plate format. Concentration Information: Dried extracts resuspended at 15 mg/ml in DMSO. Production of this plant extract library was funded by a grant from the Starr Foundation to the Osher Institute of Medicine at Harvard Medical School. The library contains extracts from plants used in traditional Chinese medicine. Crude extracts from the plants were obtained and further fractionated to eliminate nuisance compounds, especially those of high molecular weight or high polarity. Screening positives that have been confirmed by follow-up experiments on cherry picked samples can be further fractionated via a collaboration with the lab of Dr. Jon Clardy (BCMP Department, Harvard Medical School). Please contact Caroline Shamu or Jennifer Smith to arrange for purification of “hit” compounds from extract samples. The Starr2 library was created by reformatting many of the same extracts that were present in Starr1. There are no extracts in Starr2 that were not also present in Starr1.
