Abstract:
The aim of the present study was to screen the bioactive components present in the methanol leaf extract of Maytenus heyneana using GC-MS analysis, which revealed a total of 29 bioactive constituents. Major peak area percentages observed were 18.35%, 10.39% and 9.50% that indicated the presence of Squalene, 1,3,3,5- Tetra cyanopentane and 2-Hexadecen-1-01, 3,7,11,15-tetramethyl-,[R-[R*,R*-(E)]]-(CAS) components respectively. Though the biological activities of some of the components are yet to be discovered, other components have certain entailed biological activities such as antiaging, antimicrobial, analgesic, antidiabetic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antidermatitic, antileukemic, antitumor, anticancer, hepatoprotective, hypocholesterolemic, antiulcerogenic, vasodilator, antispasmodic, antibronchitic and anticoronary.
