The osteoblastic activity of extracts of Drynaria fortunei (Kunze) J. Sm. rhizome was assayed in the UMR106 cell line cultured in vitro. An ethanol extract and its fractions were added to the cell culture at different concentrations. Osteoblastic proliferation stimulating activity was determined using the MTT method. The ethanol extract, and its ethyl acetate and n-butanol fractions exhibited stimulating activity. Two active constituents were isolated from n-butanol fraction by bioassay… CONTINUE READING
