Plants are one of the natural sources of bioactive molecules with potential abilities against different stress conditions. During pathogenic exposure, an array of biologically active molecules like reactive oxygen intermediates, phytoalexins and defense peptides are synthesized as measure of plant resistance to combat the intensifying conditions. Such molecules play a key role in advancement in potential therapeutics development. Psoralea corylifolia (P. corylifolia), a medicinal herb was… Expand
