Likewise the caedia methanolic, ethyl acetate and aqueous extract showed scavenging activity with a percent decrease of The same procedure was repeated for the standard solution of gallic acid and the calibration line was constructed. There was decreased in the level of endogenous antioxidant such as GSH and GR in the positive control group however decreased level of GSH and GR was found to be increased with the pretreatment of the methanolic extract of C.

Support Center Support Center. According to Negi et al. DPPH radical scavenging activity The quenching of free radical activity of caesix extracts were determined by spectrophotometric method against 2,2-diphenylpicryl hydrazyl DPPH following [25].

National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. RESULTS Preliminary phytochemical screening reveals the presence of curvuma, carbohydrates, reducing sugars, flavonoids, terpenes, steroids, and tannins in the methanolic extract of C. Mice bone marrow micronucleus test was carried out according to. The total caesi content as well as reducing ability of the extracts was also determined. Similar trend was followed for methanoilc extract of C.

All the drugs and chemicals used in this experiment were procured from Segma sales, Silchar, Assam, India, which were kindly provided by Himedia, India. Sulfur free radical reactivity with curcumin as reference for evaluating antioxidant properties of medicinal Zingiberales. So it could be provided as one of the herbal curcuna in chemoprevention of CP to ameliorate the side effects of it. MECC has high phenol content,[ 22 ] it is also a good source of antioxidant and antimutagenic activity.


This article needs additional citations for verification. The resulting complete mixture was poured on minimal agar plates prepared as described by Maron and Ames [28]. The reduction percentage of micronuclei was Percentage inhibition was calculated using the formula [29].

The results were based on the number of induced revertant colonies detected. Standard calibration curve for bovine serum albumin to find out protein cucruma. The chemistry behind antioxidant capacity assays.

Curcuma caesia – Black Turmeric

The experiment was performed as mentioned above. It is shown for the first time that MECC has protective effect against genotoxicity induced by CP in bone marrow cells as caedia as protects against toxicity induced in the liver and kidney by CP.

Antioxidant and antimutagenic activities of pomegranate peel extracts. Considering the importance of natural products in modern phytomedicine, the antioxidant and antimutagenic activities of C.

Anti-clastogenic activity of Azadirachta indica against benzo a pyrene in murine forestomach tumorigenesis bioassay. The pellet was resuspended in FBS before being used for preparing slides. Pharmacognostic parameters for evaluation of the rhizomes of Curcuma caesia.

After 30 min of incubation absorbance was read at nm against the reagent blank. Antimutagenic effect of foods and chemoprevention of cancer. Medicinal plants play an important role in two-sided approach: In-vitro evaluation of antioxidant activity of Curcuma caesia Cudcuma. Antioxidant activity applying an improved ABTS radical cation decolorization assay. Banerjee A, Nigam SS. Glutathione reduced GSH was estimated following[ 32 ] with slight modifications. Mantle D, Wilkins RM.

Open in a separate window. Study of the anti-ulcerogenic activity of the ethanolic extracts of rhizome of Curcuma caesia eecc against gastic ulcers in experimental animals.

Preliminary phytochemical screening Qualitative preliminary phytochemical screening was performed following. Study of the anti-ulcerogenic activity of the ethanolic extracts of rhizome of Curcuma caesia eecc against gastrsic ulcers in experimental animals. The ethanol fraction was found to be the most active free radical scavenger exhibited The rhizomes are taken out when the water is reduced to one-third of the original and they are soft and their inner portion has turned from blue to dark or pale brown.

The cultivation and harvest practices are similar to that of common turmeric.
