Objective: To develop an HPLC method for estimation of psoralen, bakuchicin and bakuchiol in Psoralea corylifolia . Materials and methods: An gradient, reverse phase (RP) HPLC procedure using a mixture of Phosphate buffer and acetonitrile as mobile phase, C18 column as stationary phase and UV detector. Results: The developed method shows high resolution, accuracy and reproducibility. Conclusions: The method developed is accurate, precise and specific.

Quantitative determination of psoralen and angelicin from some medicinal herbs by high performance liquid chromatography
A reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatographic method was developed and the seeds ofPsoralea corylifolia showed the highest contents of psoralen and angelicin among the tested herbs. Expand
A validated high-performance thin-layer chromatography method for quantification of bavachin, bakuchiol, and psoralen from Psoralea corylifolia seeds
A sensitive and reliable high-performance thin-layer chromatography method has been developed for the simultaneous estimation of bavachin, bakuchiol, and psoralen in Psoralea corylifolia seeds. TheExpand
In vitro isolation, elicitation of psoralen in callus cultures of Psoralea corylifolia and cloning of psoralen synthase gene.
This is the first report of isolation, cloning and characterization of psoralen synthase from Psoralea corylifolia and its nucleotide sequence showed 93% homology with psoralin synthase isolated from Ammi majus. Expand
Optimization of elicitation condition with Jasmonic Acid, characterization and antimicrobial activity of Psoralen from direct regenerated plants of Psoralea corylifolia L
The present work provides the possibility of increasing production of psoralen in in vitro plants of P. corylifolia using Jasmonic Acid as an elicitor and methanolic extract of root sample showed effective antimicrobial activity against tested bacterial and fungal pathogens. Expand
