A preliminary pharmacognostical study on leaves and flowers of Michelia champaca L. Magnoliaceae

Abstract: The present investigation was conducted to establish pharmacognostical profile for the leaves and flowers of Michelia champaca L. (Magnoliaceae) in order to establish its complete profile to aid in its identification and avoid confusion in taxonomic level for different species of the same genus. The study included macroscopical, organoleptical, microscopical and preliminary phytochemical analysis of the leaves and flowers. The study of the organoleptical evaluation revealed the presence of colour, odour and te… Show more

“…Cancer is characterized by uncontrolled cell division by overcoming the signalling pathways involved in normal cell proliferation leading to apoptosis, extensive angiogenesis and metastasis. If the cell cycles particular checkpoints are targeted then it may provide lead for novel method of treatment [10]. The regulatory proteins, cyclins and their effector counterparts the cyclin dependant kinases have been identified as prominent targets in cell cycle mechanism.…”

“…according to the book "The Tretise of Indian Medicinal plants" 5 Preliminary phytochemical analysis of various extracts of Michelia champaca L. leaves and flowers showed the presence of alkaloids, tannins, glycosides, carbohydrates, amino acids, flavonoids and sterols. 6 Antibacterial and free radical scavenging activity of Michelia champaca L. was done on its flowers. In this study hexane and ethyl acetate extract showed strong antioxidant activity with IC50 values of both extracts were found to be 10µg/ml and 250 µg/ml respectively.…”
