Phytochemical and Antibacterial studies of Fenugreek Trigonella foenum-graecum L.-A Multipurpose Medicinal Plant

  title={Phytochemical and Antibacterial studies of Fenugreek Trigonella foenum-graecum L.-A Multipurpose Medicinal Plant},
  author={S. Nandagopal and D. Dhanalakshmi and A. Ganesh Kumar and D. Sujitha},
Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum L.) belongs to the family Fabaceae and it is small annual herb. The Fenugreek seed contains a number of medicinally important compounds such as volatile oils, alkaloids, flavonoids, saponins, fatty acids and rich source of polysaccharide galactomannan. In the present study, we evaluated the phytochemical analysis for the presence of various secondary metabolites and antibacterial activity of the seed extracts of Trigonella foenum-graecum L. against…

Objective: Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) is a medicinal plant of culinary origin commonly used as spice and vegetable. The present study was focused to identify the immunomodulatory
Bioactives in spices, and spice oleoresins: Phytochemicals and their beneficial effects in food preservation and health promotion
A summary of the most relevant and recent findings on phytochemical composition and antioxidant properties of spices has been compiled and discussed.
Supercritical Carbon dioxide Extraction of Triognella Foenum Graecum Linn Seeds: Determination of Bioactive Compounds and Pharmacological Analysis
Abstract Objective To investigate the effect of temperature and pressure on supercritical CO2 extraction of Triognella foenum graecum Linn seeds, to determine the optimal condition which leads to
Metabolomic Profiling and Antioxidant Activity of Trigonella foenum-graecum and Trigonella hamosa
T. foenum-graecum revealed an interesting metabolomic pattern with antioxidant activity that assigns this plant as a promising candidate to explore its targeted and non-targeted metabolomics profile along with potential bioactivities.
Effect of morphological trait variance on plant yield in different trigonella foenum-graecum L. varieties
It is concluded that high heritability estimates would be of great significance for breeding programs to attain superior varieties on the basis of phenotypic performance.
Analysis of genetic diversity among medicinal therapist Trigonella foenum-graecum L. genotypes through RAPD and SSR markers
Hierarchical clustering of genotypes in nine different clusters showed Trigonella’s genetic variability has wide genetic distribution across different agro-climatic zones and knowledge of these genetic differences significantly contributes in designing intra-specific crosses with potential interest to spice breeding programs.
Development and Characterization of Active Native and Cross-Linked Pearl Millet Starch-Based Film Loaded with Fenugreek Oil
The successful utilization of fenugreek oil was confirmed as a very effective antimicrobial agent in preparing edible films and to substitute artificial preservatives with natural one.


Broad-spectrum antibacterial and antifungal properties of certain traditionally used Indian medicinal plants
Broad-spectrum antimicrobial activity (both antibacterial and antifungal) was detected among crude extracts of Bryophyllum pinnatum (leaves), Caesalpinia bonducella (seeds), Delonix regia (flower), Hedychium spicatum (fruits), Mangifera indica (le Leaves), Murraya coenigii (le leaves) and Syzgium cumini (seeeds).
Antimicrobial screening of selected medicinal plants from India.
From the Indian traditional medicines 78 plants were selected on the basis of their use in the treatment of infectious diseases and only 13% of the plant extracts were active against at least one fungus in a concentration of 50 mg/ml.
Antibacterial Activity of Traditional Medicinal Plants Against Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus and Methicillin Sensitive Staphylococcus Aureus
Results revealed that Caeselpinia sappan, Terminalia bellerica and Cassia fistula were effective against pyogenic organisms like MRSA and MSSA.
Chemopreventive activities of Trigonella foenum graecum (Fenugreek) against breast cancer
A potential protective effect of Fenugreek seeds against 7,12‐dimethylbenz(α)anthracene (DMBA)‐induced breast cancer in rats is shown and this is the first study that suggests significant chemopreventive effects of Fenugen seeds against breast cancer.

Evaluation of a tetrazolium-based semiautomated colorimetric assay: assessment of chemosensitivity testing.
The clonogenic assay was more sensitive when continuous drug exposures were utilized, although this was primarily related to the increased drug exposure time, and therefore it offers a valid, simple method of assessing chemosensitivity in established cell lines.
