Constituent analysis of the ethanol extracts of Chimonanthus nitens Oliv. leaves and their inhibitory effect on α-glucosidase activity.

The ethanol extracts of Chimonanthus nitens Oliv. leaves were prepared sequentially by ethanol gradient elution and tested for their α-glucosidase inhibitory. The fraction of 50% ethanol eluate (EE) exhibited the notable inhibition with IC50 of 0.376mg/mL. Also, 50% EE was chemically characterized by liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) analysis… CONTINUE READING
