The alkaloids from Tabernaemontana pandacaqui and Voacanga globosa leaves were selectively extracted, quantified, and tested for their cytotoxic activity using the Brine Shrimp Lethality Assay (BSLA). The extraction procedures included methanol extraction, Mayer’s reagent precipitation, and chemically active solvent extraction. The alkaloid content of the extracts were quantified as milligrams of Vincristine Sulfate Equivalent (mg VSE) using Bromocresol Green Assay. The results showed that the… CONTINUE READING
