Accumulation of vasicine and vasicinone in tissue cultures of Adhatoda vasica and evaluation of the free radical-scavenging activities of the various crude extracts. Separation was carried out at room temperature.

Preliminary phytochemical and antibacterial screening of crude extract of the leaf of Adhatoda vasica. The following Gram negative, Gram positive bacteria, clinical isolates, and fungi were used for the experiment: Table 4 Cytotoxic effect of Vasicine acetate against A lung adenocarcinoma cancer cell line.

Vasicine showed antimicrobial activity against S. Antibacterial and antifungal activities were carried out using disc diffusion method [ 16 ].

Conclusion Vasicine acetate was obtained by acetylation of Vasicine recovered from A. Balachandran2 S. The compound showed prominent cytotoxic activity in vitro against A lung adenocarcinoma cancer cell line. Vasicine is reported to have bronchodilatory, respiratory stimulant, and uterine stimulant effects [ 14 ].

The structure of the isolated compound Vasicine and Vasicine axtivity Figure 1. Published online Jan The plant contains alkaloids such as Vasicine, antiacterial, deoxyvasicine, vasicol, adhatodinine, and vasicinol [ 12 ]. The MIC for fungi was defined as the lowest extract concentration, showing no visible fungal growth after incubation time.


In vitro antibacterial activity of selected medicinal plants from lower Himalayas.

Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute; The extract was filtered through Whatman No. Then the residue was crystallised from chloroform to get Vasicine acetate as colorless crystals m.

The alkaloid Vasicine was isolated from ethanolic extract of the leaves of A. BoxRiyadhSaudi Arabia. Minimum Inhibitory Concentration MIC Minimum inhibitory concentration studies of the compounds were performed according to the standard reference methods for bacteria [ 17 ] and filamentous fungi [ 18 ].

It was then distilled on a water bath and the residue was washed with little n-hexane. Acanthaceae is used in the indigenous system of medicine in India. Cytotoxic A and antimicrobial effects of Methylobacterium sp.
