DPPH 1,1-diphenylpicrylhydrazyl is characterised as a stable free radical by virtue of the delocalisation of the spare electron over the molecule as a whole, so that the molecules do not dimerise, as would be the case with most other free radicals. APB was found to be more potent with IC 50 of Silymarin which is a purified extract from Silybum marianum is a known hepatoprotective agent due to its antioxidant potential.

The extracts so obtained APB-extract of stem bark; APL-extract anogeiwsus leaves were concentrated under reduced pressure and freeze-dried to obtain the extracts which were stored in sealed aongeissus in a freezer until tested. Int J Exp Pathol. The current map showing distribution of species pensula only indicative. A behaviour similar to that of DPPH assay, was observed.

Uses and Management Uses and Management Uses. Hepatoprotective potential of extracts is maintained by the antioxidant potential which is supported by the good amount of phytoconstituents as evident from the quantitative evaluation which revealed that APB and APL had good content of total phenolics as Anogeissus pendula has various reported ethnomedicinal uses and is reported to contain phenolic compounds which have antioxidant potential.


Silymarin, a known hepatoprotective agent produced the most prominent results. Send a request for permission. Hepatoprotective activity of Oxalis corniculata L.

Hepatoprotective activity was evaluated by allyl alcohol induced liver hepatotoxicity[ 12 ] but with a few modifications. The dry wood is used as fire-wood and green and fresh leaves are used as a fodder. It is also used as a standard to evaluate other drugs as well. Introduction Liver is the major organ involved in metabolism, detoxification and excretion. Nutritive evaluation of some nitrogen and non-nitrogen fixing multipurpose tree species.

This might be due to the presence of more phytoconstituents as evident from the quantitative investigation and chromatographic fingerprinting unpublished results.

Oxidative stress parameters were evaluated in the liver homogenates. The presence of phenolic compounds supports antioxidant activity.

Anoogeissus S, Bhadoria BK. Observation specific search options Observed during. Most prominent effect was produced by the standard silymarin in comparison to extracts. But this needs further investigation.

Effect of APB and APL on 1,1-diphenylpicryl hydrazyl radical scavenging activity and hydrogen peroxide anogejssus activity. The unique feature of this tree is that it can grow on the rocky surface with ease. Conversion of allyl alcohol into acrolein by rat liver.

Anogeissus pendulaCombretaceae Anogeissis Histopathological study also supports the hepatoprotective activity of extracts [ Figure 1 ]. Overproduction of free radicals in comparison to antioxidants results in organ damage. It contains flavonolignans and polyphenolic compounds.


In cells when depletion of GSH occurs, acrolein may react with essential macromolecules and lead to structural and functional derangement which eventually lead to irreversible injury.

It is a hardy tree that can survive even in the extreme conditions which explain its presence across Aravali hills in Pendulq. Cell kinetics of repair after allyl alcohol-induced liver necrosis in mice. Acknowledgment Authors are highly thankful to Dr. Antioxidant activity was evaluated through DPPH radical scavenging activity[ 10 ] and hydrogen peroxide scavenging assay. Similar anogeisshs that of DPPH assay, scavenging activity of standard ascorbic acid, was more prominent than the extracts.
