Citrus macroptera Montruz. fruits were collected, its rind was dried and powdered. Three different organic extracts, aqueous (NC1), methanol (NC2) and aqueous methanol (NC3) were prepared. In vitro antioxidant and reverse phase High Performance Liquid Chromatography (RP-HPLC) was done to quantify the quercetin, rutin and kaempferol content in three extracts of Citrus macroptera Montruz. NC1 showed highest antioxidant (DPPH-IC50 87.83 μg/mg, reducing power assay 36.71 μg/mg). Quercetin and… Expand

Lupeol (1) and Stigmasterol (2) were isolated from the crude extracts of the stem bark of Citrus macroptera (Family: Rutaceae) for the first time. The n-hexane, dichloromethane and methanol extractsExpand
Antioxidant Capacity and Radical Scavenging Effect of Polyphenol Rich Mallotus philippenensis Fruit Extract on Human Erythrocytes: An In Vitro Study
Evidence is provided that Mallotus fruit extract is a potential natural source of antioxidants which have a protective role on human Erythrocytes exhibiting minimum hemolytic activity and this justified its uses in folklore medicines. Expand
Objective: The objective of present work is to study the in-vitro anti-oxidant activities of n-Hexane, Chloroform and Ethanol extract of Citrus macroptera (var annamensis) fruit peels so as to findExpand
Inhibitory effect of mung bean extract and its constituents vitexin and isovitexin on the formation of advanced glycation endproducts
Abstract The anti-glycation activity of four kinds of beans including mung bean, black bean, soybean and cowpea were evaluated. Aqueous alcohol extract of mung bean exhibited the strongest inhibitoryExpand
Rutin and flavonoid contents in three buckwheat species Fagopyrum esculentum, F. tataricum, and F. homotropicum and their protective effects against lipid peroxidation
Abstract This study was conducted to investigate the rutin content of three buckwheat species: Fagopyrum esculentum, Fagopyrum tataricum and Fagopyrum homotropicum, and to evaluate their antioxidantExpand
Quantification of main phenolic compounds in sweet and bitter orange peel using CE-MS/MS.
Abstract The food and agricultural products processing industries generate substantial quantities of phenolics-rich subproducts, which could be valuable natural sources of polyphenols. In oranges,Expand
Fenton reaction applied for screening natural antioxidants
Abstract Antioxidant activities of pure chemicals and food additives were compared with that of herb extracts using a method based on the Fenton reaction for screening natural antioxidants. ThisExpand
Evidence for protective and antioxidant properties of rutin, a natural flavone, against ethanol induced gastric lesions.
The results suggest that the gastroprotective effect of rutin in this experimental model appears through an anti-lipoperoxidants effect, and also by enhancement of the anti-oxidant enzymatic activity. Expand
The correlation between active oxygens scavenging and antioxidative effects of flavonoids.
The flavonoids tested now, except monohydroxy flavones, were more or less inhibitive to the superoxide anion (O2) generation in the hypoxanthine-xanthine oxidase system. Expand
Phenolic content and antioxidant activities of selected potato varieties and their processing by-products
Abstract The total content of free, esterified and bound phenolics of the peel and flesh of four potato varieties (Purple, Innovator, Russet and Yellow) were determined using the Folin–CiocalteuExpand
