EVALUATION OF INVITRO ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITY OF Pedalium murex L.

Abstract :

Pedalium murex belonging to family Pedaliaceae was distributed throughout India. In the present study, to assess the in vitro anti-oxidant activity of the ethanolicextract of whole plantPedalium murex. The antioxidant activities of the ethanol extracts from the Pedalium murex whole plant were assessed in efforts to validate the herb. The antioxidant activity of the plant has been studied using its ability to scavenger DPPH, total antioxidant capacity, superoxide radicals, hydrogen peroxide, hydroxyl radical and nitric oxide radical. Analysis of plant extracts revealed a high scavenging activity suggesting a possible role of these phytoconstituents in the antioxidant property. The values are found to comparable to those of ascorbic acid as the standard. Moreover, the results were observed in a concentration and dose dependent manner. Studies clearly indicate that the Pedalium murex has significant anti-oxidant activityand alsoused in folkloric medicines.

Keywords:

Pedalium murex, physicochemical characters, phytochemical screening, Antioxidant activity.
