Parmeliaceae includes several commonly known groups of lichens such as the Iceland moss (Cetraria islandica
), beard-lichens (Usnea sp.), and the Oakmoss (Evernia prunastri) .
was isolated from the lichen Cetraria islandica
As an important morphological group, cetrarioid lichens are one of the most studied lichen taxa for their phylogeny, secondary chemistry, bioactivities and uses in folk medicines, especially the lichen Cetraria islandica
. However, insufficient structure elucidation and discrepancy in bioactivity results could be found in a few studies.
Lichen (Cetraria islandica
or Iceland moss) imparts moisturization.

For several diseases she mentioned the use of different plants (e.g., cough and tuberculosis treated with Juniperus communis L., Viburnum opulus L., Cetraria islandica
(L.) Ach., Achillea millefolium L., Menyanthes trifoliata L.; kidney and bladder diseases treated with Jovibarba sobolifera (Sims) Opiz and Arctostaphylos uva-ursi (L.) Spreng., etc.), while according to her boils were to be treated only with P.
Determination of antioxidant activity of Linchen Cetraria islandica
The ability of the enzyme to hydrolyze the various substrates was investigated by using oat spelts xylan (0.5%, w/v), Cetraria islandica
lichenan (0.5%, w/v), avicel (0.5%, w/v), p-nitrophenyl-b-D-glucopyranoside (3 mM) and p-nitrophenyl-b-D-xylopyronoside (3 mM).
