The crown of Solanum melongena was removed from fruit, dried, extracted and percentage yield was calculated. Phytochemical examination of the methanolic and aqueous extracts showed the presence of alkaloids, saponins, steroids, tannins/ phenolics, flavonoids, proteins and carbohydrates. It was concluded that the extracts of crown contains important constituents for pharmacological activities. Keywords: Solanum melongena ; eggplant; phytochemical screening; Crown

Review on Bioactive and Antioxidant Potential of Coloured Fruits and Vegetables
The present study has undertaken to ascertain the possibilities of nutraceutical potential of coloured fruits and vegetables, which have enormous biological power and potential of nutraceutically active biomolecules.
Hepatoprotective Effect of Solanum melongena/Eggplant against Acute Hepatitis
Solanum melongena fruit infusion has hepatoprotective effects against acute hepatitis in rat model histopathologically, and the percentage of necrotic hepatocytes in group III, IV a nd V were lower than in the positive group.
Studies on Combining Ability in Eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) for Yield and Its Component
SMB115 × DBL02, PB66 × Pant Samrat and IBWL 2001-1 × Pant Rituraj were showed highest Specific Combining Ability (SCA) effect for most of the characters and these cross combinations could be commercially exploited for higher yield.
Effect of Solanum aethiopicum and Solanum macrocarpon Fruits on Weight Gain, Blood Glucose and Liver Glycogen of Wistar Rats
Both eggplants exhibited a dose-dependent, weight-reducing effect on the rats and showed significant hypoglycemic effect, which could be exploited to mitigate the challenge of obesity.


Effect of alkaloids of Solanum melongena on the central nervous system.
Crude alkaloidal fraction isolated from the leaves of Solanum melongena exhibited significant analgesic effect and some CNS depression but no anticonvulsant action and LD50 was estimated to be higher than 1 g/kg i.p. in mice.
Effect of alkaloids of Solanvm melongena on the central nervous system
Abstract Crude alkaloidal fraction isolated from the leaves of Solanum melongena was screened for its effects on the central nervous system. It exhibited significant analgesic effect and some CNS
Diversity in eggplant (Solanum melongena) for superoxide scavenging activity, total phenolics, and ascorbic acid
Eggplant extracts from the AVRDC Solanum collection have demonstrated potency in scavenging reactive oxygen species that are implicated in many human diseases and sufficient genetic diversity exists in S. melongena for SOS and total phenolics to justify evaluation of a larger number of accessions.

Abstract UDP-glucose:diosgenin and UDP-glucose:solasodine glucosyltransferase are present in leaves, stems, roots and ripening seeds of garden eggplant (Solanum melongena). These two enzymes share
Antioxidant activity of nasunin, an anthocyanin in eggplant peels.
The findings suggest that nasunin is a potent O(2)(-) scavenger and has protective activity against lipid peroxidation in rat brain homogenate and against malonaldehyde and 4-hydroxyalkenals.
Antioxidant activity of nasunin, an anthocyanin in eggplant.
It is demonstrated that nasunin is a potent O2*- scavenger and iron chelator which can protect against lipid peroxidation and hydroxyl radical scavenging by nasunin.
