Psoralea Corylifolia Linn is well known traditional medical plant used for various treatment. It has antiinflammatory activity. Little research has been done to study anti-inflammatory activity of psoralen fruit in which inflammation was induced in rat by using egg white. Edema to paws has taken as index of antiinflammatory activity. Egg white cause inflammation and edema.

In vitro responses of fish melanophores to lyophilized extracts of Psoralea corylifolia seeds and pure psoralen
The lyophilized extract of P. corylifolia and its active ingredient psoralen caused significant melanin dispersal responses leading to darkening of the fish scale melanophores, which were completely antagonized by atropine and hyoscine, which are specific cholino-muscarinic receptor blockers.

A comparative survey of leguminous plants as sources of the isoflavones, genistein and daidzein: implications for human nutrition and health.
The results indicate that the legumes, lupine (Lupinus spp.), fava bean, (Vicia faba), soybeans (Glycine max), kudzu (Pueraria lobata), and psoralea (Psoralee corylifolia), are excellent food sources for both genistein and daidzein. Expand
In vitro dopaminergic neuroprotective and in vivo antiparkinsonian-like effects of Δ3,2-hydroxybakuchiol isolated from Psoralea corylifolia (L.)
It is suggested that BU could be meaningful in PD treatment by preventing against MPTP-induced behavioral and histological lesions in the Parkinson’s disease model, possibly by inhibiting monoamine transporters. Expand
The Benzopyrone Biochanin-A as a reversible, competitive, and selective monoamine oxidase B inhibitor
The data obtained indicate that BIO-A is a potent, reversible and selective MAO-B inhibitor and may be recommended for further investigation in its possible use in the therapeutic management of Parkinson’s and Alzheimer's diseases. Expand
