The present study was conducted to determine the variation in the content of several plant chemicals, namely hyperforin, hypericin, pseudohypericin, chlorogenic acid, rutin, hyperoside, isoquercetine, kaempferol, quercitrine and quercetine among ten Hypericum orientale L. populations from Northern Turkey. The aerial parts representing a total of 30(More)
CONTEXT Hypericum perforatum L. (Guttiferae) contains many bioactive secondary metabolites including hypericins, hyperforins, and essential oil. OBJECTIVE The present study was conducted to determine the variation in composition of essential oil in H. perforatum accessions from Turkey. MATERIAL AND METHODS At full flowering, aerial parts of 30 plants(More)
The phloroglucinol derivative hyperforin, the naphthodianthrones hypericin and pseudohypericin, the phenylpropane chlorogenic acid, and the flavonoids rutin, hyperoside, apigenin-7-O-glucoside, kaempferol, quercitrin, quercetin and amentoflavone were investigated in Hypericum confertum growing wild in Turkey. After drying at room temperature, the plant(More)
The present study was conducted out to determine hyperforin, hypericin, pseudohypericin, chlorogenic acid, rutin, hyperoside, quercitrin, quercetin, kaempferol, apigenin-7-O-glucoside and amentoflavone contents of Hypericum adenotrichum, an endemic plant species to Turkey. The aerial parts representing a total of 30 individuals were collected at full(More)
Altitudinal changes in the content of hypericin, pseudohypericin, hyperforin, adhyperforin, chlorogenic acid, neochlorogenic acid, caffeic acid, 2,4-Dihydroxybenzoic acid, amentoflavone, hyperoside, isoquercitrin, quercitrin, quercetin, avicularin, rutin, (+)-catechin and (−)-epicatechin among Hypericum orientale L. and Hypericum pallens Banks and Sol.(More)
The principle medicinal secondary metabolites present in Hypericum species are thought to be naphthodianthrones hypericin and pseudohypericin. The present study was conducted to determine ontogenetic and morphogenetic variations of hypericin and pseudohypericin contents in Hypericum triquetrifolium growing in two sites located in Northern Turkey. Plants(More)
Hypericum perforatum is a perennial medicinal plant known as "St. John's wort" in Western Europe and has been used in the treatment of several diseases for centuries. In the present study, morphologic, phenologic and population variability in pseudohypericin and hyperforin concentrations among H. perforatum populations from Northern Turkey was investigated(More)
In the present study, the presence of the phloroglucinol derivative hyperforin, the naphthodianthrones hypericin and pseudohypericin, the phenylpropane chlorogenic acid and the flavonoids rutin, hyperoside, kaempferol, isoquercetine, quercitrine, and quercetine was investigated in Hypericum leptophyllum Hochst., an endemic Turkish species for the first(More)
The present study was conducted to determine phenologic and morphogenetic variation of chlorogenic acid and flavonoids, as rutin, hyperoside, apigenin-7-O-glucoside, quercitrin, quercetin and viteksin content of Hypericum montbretii growing in Turkey. Wild growing plants were harvested at vegetative, floral budding, full flowering, fresh fruiting and mature(More)
CONTEXT The genus Hypericum (Guttiferae) has received considerable scientific interest as a source of biologically active compounds. OBJECTIVE The study determined the morphogenetic and ontogenetic variation in the main bioactive compounds of two Hypericum species, namely, Hypericum aviculariifolium subsp. depilatum var. depilatum (Freyn and Bornm.)(More)
