The present study was undertaken to find the phytochemical presence, antioxidant potential, antimicrobial activity, and anticancer activity of methanol extract of Berberis aristita. Plant extract showed the presence of antioxidants like alkaloid, saponin, terpenoids, coumarin, flavonoids, tannin, glycoside and steroid. Further, antioxidant assay like DPPH (Diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl) assay, hydrogen peroxide assay and reducing power assay was done. DPPH free radical Scavenging Activity was… CONTINUE READING
