Abstract The genus Berberis Berberidaceae includes about species worldwide, some of which are widely cultivated in the north-eastern regions of Iran. Total flavonoid content was determined and found to be 0. The antimicrobial activity of Berberis aristata extract against tested bacterias may be due to the presence of secondary metabolites mainly berberine, an isoquinoine alkaloid with a bright yellow colour.

Journal List Pharmacogn Rev v. Currently, the predominant clinical uses of berberine include bacterial diarrhea, intestinal parasite infections, and ocular trachoma infections.

The synthetic herbicides impose serious environmental problems which, ultimately, afflict human health. Menispermaceae from its adulterants. Crocus sativusCuminum cyminum and Berberis vulgaris are important medicinal food plants growing widely antimicfobial Iran and also cultivated for their nutritional purposes and economic significance.

Phytochemical and biological screening of Berberis aristata ยป Advancements in Life Sciences

Phytochemical studies of Berberis vulgaris. The authors declare that there is no conflict of interest regarding the publication of this paper. Nil Conflict of Antimicroobial Folia Microbiol Praha ; In this study, the extract of Berberis aristata are found to be most active in inhibiting the growth of pathogens viz. Nepal J Sci Technol ; The photochemical analysis conducted on Berberis aristata extracts revealed the presence of alkaloid, carbohydrate, glycoside, flavonoid and other phytoconstituents.


Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. Antimicrobial activity of four species of Berberidaceae. Identification of plant material was done in the Scan Research Laboratory Indripuri Bhopal and placed in herbarium and was well documented.

Two or three granules of tin metal were dissolved in 2 ml of thionyl chloride solution. The structures of some phytochemical compounds isolated from activith species of Berberis. Phytochemical analysis of some medicinal plants from western region of India. The most important constituent of the plant is berberine, a quaternary isoquinoline alkaloid that is typically found in the roots and stems.

Tamilselvi Saravanakumar, Padma Venkatasubramanian, N. In fact, a considerable number of antibiotics available in the market have natural or semi-synthetic origins [6] and act substantially against human pathogens.

The South-Khorasan province especially around Birjand and Qaen is the major field of cultivation for zereshk antinicrobial the world. The grave concern of reduction in the yield and quality of agricultural crops due to weeds has laid much emphasis on the natural plant based allelochemicals for potential weed control [40].

Biol Pharm Bull ; Berberis aristata belongs to the family Berberidaceae, is an important medicinal plant.

Phytochemistry and Pharmacology of Berberis Species

The root extract was most active against Shigella and V. Berberies [homepage on the internet] [Last accessed on Aug 13]. However, the leaf extract also showed the absence of alkaloids and steroids. Phytochemical screening of the three extracts identified the presence of alkaloids, reducing sugars, steroids, flavonoids, terpenoids, glycosides and saponins while tannins were found to be absent.

Antimicrob Agents Chemother ; Berberis production and processing. Int J Pharmacol ;7: Alkaloid with wide spectrum of pharmacology activities, J. The formation of a reddish brown ring at the interface suggested the presence of steroids [27].

Bioorg Med Chem Lett. Formation of intense yellow colour, which becomes colourless on addition of dilute acid, indicates the berberris of flavonoid Test of Saponins Small quantity of alcoholic and aqueous extract was taken separately and 20ml of distilled water was added and shaken in graduated cylinder for 15 minutes length wise.


The aim of the present investigation was undertaken to find out the phytochemical presence and Antimicrobial activity of aqueous and alcholic extract of Berberis aristata. It is a large deciduous shrub, o 1. Alcoholic and aqueous extract showed antimicrobial activity against four tested bacteria.

At present, medicinal biologists are seeking much interest in the pharmacological exploration of natural products [5] which would inevitably power the development of a greener pharmacy and contribute significantly to biomedicine.

The leaves on long shoots are not involved in photosynthesis but develop into three-spine thorns and finally short shoots with several leaves cm long, simple, and either entire, or with spiny margins involved in photosynthesis. Following incubation, the antimicrobial activities were evaluated for each extract by measuring, in millimeters, the diameter of the zones of inhibition around each well.

Preliminary phytochemical analysis of Berberis aristata showed the presence of carbohydrate, glycoside, alkaloid, flavonoid while protein, saponin, triterpenoids and fats and fixed oils were absent. Special Issue Abstract Book.

Given its clinical applications and the grave concern of weed based crop damage in Pakistan, the plant was investigated for its antimicrobial and allelopathic activities. A majority of the described antimicrobial effects of Berberis aristata have been accredited to their secondary metabolites, particularly alkaloid compounds [11].

Also, the phytoxicity of the extracts was evaluated against Lemna minor and the data was recorded after seven days. Structures of the compounds below are shown in Figure 1.
