Abstract:
Abrus precatorius is an important medicinal plat. Different parts of this plant are having various potent biological active compounds hence this plant is useful to diagnose various dieses conditions. To study phyto-constituents of seed of red Abrus precatorius, in the present study methanolic extract of the seed is investigated by GCMS technique. Further seed extract also analysed for total phenols and total flavanoids as well as antioxidative isoenzymes i.e. catalase, peroxidise and superoxide dismutase (SOD). At the end of the study it has found that the methanolic seed extract contained higher flavanoids as compare to phenols whereas peroxidise activity was found higher as compare to the rest of two isozymes. GCMS analysis exhibited the presence of various potent compounds however major components were Benzoic acid, 4-hydroxy-3-methoxy-, methyl ester [1.796 (µg/ml)] 1, 2, 4, 5-Cyclohexanetetrol, (1.alpha., 2.alpha., 4.alpha., 5.beta.)- [1.397 (µg/ml)] 5-Pyrimidinol, 2-methyl- [1.317 (µg/ml)], Decahydro-isoquinoline-3-carbonitrile [1.273 (µg/ml)], Oleic Acid [0.989 (µg/ml)], 17-Octadecenoic acid, methyl ester [0.573 (µg/ml)], 4-Hydroxy-3-methylacetophenone [0.504 (µg/ml)].
