PHYTOCHEMICAL INVESTIGATION AND PHARMACOLOGICAL ACTIVITIES OF HELIOTROPIUM CURASSAVICUM LINN
The current study was focused on the phytochemical investigation and pharmacological activities of the various fractions (methanolic crude, defatted methanolic, n-hexane, dichloromethane, ethylacetate and water) of H. curassavicum. The various plant extracts were examined for the total phenolic contents by taking Gallic acid as a standard, antioxidant scavenging assay by using DPPH (2, 2diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazy) & ABTS [2, 2-azinobis (3ethylbenzthiazoline-6-sulphonic acid)] free radicals, antifungal assay by using Terbinafine solution in DMSO as positive control and pure DMSO as negative control and in-vitro antibacterial activity. Methanolic crude extract showed high phenolic contents and significant antioxidant activity (both DPPH & ABTS). All other fractions were also found to have significant potential.
