The branches are used as brooms. Compendium of Medicinal Plants used in Malaysia. This is the lowest class of toxicity outlined by OECD.

Antioxidant activity of peptides obtained from porcine myofibrillar proteins by protease treatment. In the current study, an acute oral toxicity testing was conducted on Sprague—Dawley rats in order to determine the toxicity of B.

Baeckea frutescens

Estimation of acute oral toxicity in rates by determination of the approximate lethal dose rather than the LD The fresh leaves of B.

Extraction was done using the solvent extraction method, whereby fresh B. Reducing power assay The reducing power of B. Previous study by Fuijmoto et al. Cytotoxic activity of Thai medicinal plants against human cholangiocarcinoma, laryngeal and hepatocarcinoma cells in vitro.

Support Center Support Center. The water extract presented the lowest phenolic content among all the tested extracts.

An investigation by Fujimoto et al. Cytotoxic activity IC 50 values of B. The higher the level of reductive capability that is possessed by the fruutescens extract, the higher the absorbance value due to a larger number of Prussian blue colour complexes formed.


BHA was used as a positive reference standard. Since both the DPPH scavenging assay and reducing power assay are based on frurescens electron transfer principles, it is not surprising fruetscens similar trends were observed in both studies. As such the components should be isolated and frutecens. It is externally applied as an antiseptic in treating furunculosis and impetigo. Both extract-treated group and vehicle-treated group did not exhibit any abnormalities in behaviour, breathing, disruption in food and water consumption, skin effects and hair loss.

The lower the EC 50 values presented, the higher the radical scavenging ability of the extract. Kae Shin Sim, Phone: Antioxidant and antiproliferative activities of extracts of selected red and brown seaweeds from the Mandapam Coast of Tamil Nadu. In Vietnam, the whole plant of B. The aboveground parts of B.

Baeckea frutescenswhich is found in Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra and the coastal areas of southern China and Australia, is claimed to possess anti-bacterial, anti-dysentery, anti-pyretic and diuretic activities [ 3 ].

Antioxidant activity and total phenolic content of Gagea fibrosa and Romulea ramiflora. To our knowledge, there is only limited published literature on B. Fruit a hemispherical to campanulate capsule opening by longitudinal slits. According to Murugan and Iyer [ 14 ], molecules such as flavonoids and phenols are generally more soluble in methanol, chloroform and ethyl acetate. The hexane-insoluble residue was then partitioned between ethyl acetate and water 1: Phloroglucinols from Baeckea frutescens.

The reducing power frutescenz together with DPPH free radical fruescens assay are common biochemical assays used to assess the direct involvement of extracts in enhancing the primary antioxidant activity.

Growing near the sea or in sheltered locations on mountains, B. Taking this point together with the generally accepted statement that the total phenolic content usually correlates with other electron transfer based assay, we are able to derive a possible explanation as to the relatively good scavenging activity exhibited by the ethyl acetate fraction and methanol extract of the plant.


As mentioned earlier, molecules such as flavonoids and phenols are generally more soluble in methanol, chloroform and ethyl acetate. All assays were performed in triplicates to ensure their reproducibility. With the exception of B.

The assay was done in the presence of increasing concentrations of extracts under evaluation across a fixed period of time. Ecological aspects of endemic plant populations on Klang Gates quartz ridge, a habitat island in Peninsular Malaysia.
