Technology partner Strand Life Sciences. Aristolochia platanifolia recorded as an addition flora for Assam, India. The whole plant of Aristolochia bracteolata was extracted successively with MeOH and subjected to liquid-liquid fractionation with n -hexane, chloroform, ethyl acetate, aristoochia n -butanol.

View at Google Scholar D. Abstract A bioassay-guided fractionation of methanol extract of Aristolochia bracteolata whole plant was carried out in order to evaluate its antimicrobial activity and to identify the active compounds in this extract. Both the piperonylic acid moiety of AA-1 Figure 1 and AAmethyl ester showed no activity against bacteria Table 2which suggests that the coexistence of phenanthrene ring and free carboxylic acid is essential for AA-1 antibacterial activity.

A general description, with any kind of information about the taxon. Antibacterial and antifungal activities of methanol extract against gram-positive, gram-negative, and fungal strains were investigated by the agar disk diffusion method. The portal will be unavailable all day on Sunday 23rd Dec for maintenance. Send a request for permission. The MIC of the compound was defined as the lowest concentration that inhibited the visible bacterial growth and the MBC was defined as the lowest concentration that prevented the growth of the organism after subculture onto antibiotic-free plates.

Journal of Pharmacognosy and Phytochemistry. Aristolochia abyssinica Klotzch Aristolochia bracteata Retz. Despite the aristolochoa properties of aristolochic acid, naturopaths claim that a decoction of birthwort stimulates the production and increases the activity of white blood cells[11] or that pipevines contain a disinfectant which assists in wound healing.


Amikacin, cefixime, fosfomycin, cefuroxime, cotrimoxazole, doxycycline, and erythromycin resistant strains of Moraxella catarrhalis were isolated and the widespread production of a -1actamase enzyme renders the bacterium resistant to the penicillin [ 7 — 9 ].

Therefore, it was our objective to assess the potential antimicrobial activity of Aristolochia bracteolata using a bioassay-guided fractionation, in order to produce pure compound that can act as the lead compound in developing new, safe, and effective drug to replace the use of the harmful crude plant material. Aristolochic acid was linked to aristolochic acid-associated urothelial cancer in a Taiwanese study in The antibacterial activity was tested by agar disc diffusion assay [ 24 ].
