Daucus carotaL. (Family: Apiaceae alt.Umbelliferae), commonly known as ‘wild carrot’ or ‘Queen Anne’s-lace,’ is an ecologically invasive erect biennial naturalized to Scotland. The ethno-botanical uses of this species include applications in the treatment of cough, diarrhea, dysentery, cancer, malaria and tumors, and as an antiseptic, abortifacient, aphrodisiac, carminative, stimulant, stomachic and tonic. The major constituents isolated from the methanol extract of D. carotaseeds by reversed… 

Carrot Plant-A Potential Source of High Value Compounds and Biological Activities: A Review

Essential oil of carrot is produced and accumulated in the secretary ducts known as vittae. Phytochemical studies have shown that the major chemical components of carrot plant are polyphenols,

Antioxidant, Antibacterial Activities and General Toxicity of Alnus glutinosa, Fraxinus excelsior and Papaver rhoeas

Among the extracts, the methanol (MeOH) extract of F. excelsior displayed the highest level of antioxidant activity, and the dichloromethane extract of P. rhoeas was the most toxic extract towards brine shrimps.

Phytochemical Constituents of Carrot (Daucus carota) Fruit Juice and its Hepatoprotective Property in CCl4-Induced Liver Cirrhotic Rats

Antibacterial Flavonoids and Other Compounds from the Aerial Parts of Vernonia guineensis Benth. (Asteraceae)

Eleven compounds are reported herein for the first time from this species on the basis of extensive spectroscopic analyses, particularly 1D and 2D NMR, and HR‐ESI‐MS and by comparison of their data with those reported in the literature.

Antimicrobial activity of Blumea balsamifera (Lin.) DC. extracts and essential oil

The present data show that B. balsamifera extracts have activity against various infectious and toxin-producing microorganisms, and this plant's active constituents could potentially be developed for use in the treatment and/or prevention of microbial disease.

Nutritional and therapeutic importance of Daucus carota- A review

The pharmacological studies revealed that the plant possessed cytotoxic, antioxidant, antidiabetic, antimicrobial, smooth muscle relaxant, hypotensive effect and decrease intraocular pressure, gastro-prot protective, nephro-protective, hepato-Protective, cardioprotective antidepressant memory enhancement, anti-inflammatory, reproductive, wound healing and hear induction and many other effects.

Distribution and biological activities of the flavonoid luteolin.

The ability of luteolin to inhibit angiogenesis, to induce apoptosis, to prevent carcinogenesis in animal models, to reduce tumor growth in vivo and to sensitize tumor cells to the cytotoxic effects of some anticancer drugs suggests that this flavonoid has cancer chemopreventive and chemotherapeutic potential.



Bioactive Flavonoid Glycosides from the Seeds of Rosa canina

Preparative RP-HPLC analysis of a methanol extract of the seeds of Rosa canina yielded kaempferol 3- O -(6?- O-E-p -coumaroyl)-ß-D-glucopyranoside and kaempferol 3- O -(6?- O-Z-p

Radical scavenging and iron-chelating activities of some greens used as traditional dishes in Mediterranean diet

Nine different families of greens, native to the Mediterranean and commonly consumed as a salad or an ingredient in some recipes, showed antioxidant activity as a radical scavenger in the experiment using the DPPH• radical and possessed antioxidative activity toward H2O2.

Antioxidant activity of the anthocyanin from carrot (Daucus carota) callus culture

The results indicate that anthocyanin obtained from carrot showed an antioxidation activity stronger than malvidin, peonidin and α-tocopherol, and weaker than delpinidin at pH 2, 4 and 7 by the linolenic acid auto-oxidation system.
