Seven pure flavonoids were isolated and identified from five moss species. The flavonoids were the flavones apigenin, apigenin-7-O-triglycoside, lucenin-2, luteolin-7-O-neohesperidoside, saponarine and vitexin; and the biflavonoid bartramiaflavone. Some of these flavonoids were shown to have pronounced antibacterial effects against Enterobacter cloaceae, E. aerogenes and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (minimal bacteriostatic concentration MIC in the range of 4-2048 micrograms/ml). Because of their… CONTINUE READING
