The species is one of the most important non-wood trees of Mexico. It is very variable in size and shape of the leaves and as a result, it has an extensive synonymy.
F6the four extracts had a similar antiproliferative effect. Articles lacking in-text citations from February All articles lacking in-text citations Articles with glaucsecens microformats Wikipedia articles needing clarification from February All articles with unsourced statements Articles with unsourced statements from February Antibacterial Assay Antibacterial activity of extracts was evaluated by the modified microdilution broth method [ 24 ]. In addition, the increase in the enzymatic activity of PAL is related to an adaptation of the plant to stress [ 36 ].

Its leaves have been traditionally used as food seasoning, as well as remedy in folk medicine against central nervous system illness, depression, colic, pain, vomit, and diarrhea [ 21 ]. Quantification of both compounds was performed through calibration curves. Propagation By seeds and cuttings. These factors regulate the production of secondary metabolites and subsequently the potential use of medicinal plants [ 17 ].

Cell proliferation was evaluated through the MTT assay [ 28 ] modified by Hernandez et al. Seeds are not available for the Mexican Bay. As can be observed, there is a clear effect of the concentration of both on their antimicrobial activity. Although the evaluated samples have other phenolic constituents not identified in this work, it is possible that epicatechin and quercitrin could play an important role in the high antioxidant activity of ALGE and SULGE, since different studies have demonstrated that both phenolics are considered among the most antioxidant phenolic compounds [ 4546 ] and that capacity has been attributed to the glaucesces and chromane moieties that glauceescens have Figure 4.
View at Google Scholar M. MICs values were calculated from the Optical Density data using the following equations: Leaves are thin and long, with a constriction at the apex, solid green on the upper surface and lighter green below.
As can be observed, the evident difference among them is the height of the chromatographic peaks related to the concentration of the phenolics. F6 murine B-cell lymphoma was provided by Dr. All the LG extracts presented high antioxidant activity and PC, with quercitrin and epicatechin being the most abundant. For example, litsa a study performed by Herrera-Carrera et al. Makes a good candidate for container culture.
Flower in clusters; Inflorescences male and female axillary, umbellate, solitary or clustered along branches sharp cutting, c. In addition, according to the classification of medicinal plants performed by Wong et al. A Working list of All Plant Species”. Different assays are available and have glaucfscens used to evaluate the antioxidant activity of plant extracts.
The capacity of L.
Free-radical scavenging activity was measured following the modified method reported by Usia et al. These data agree with those reported by Iqbal and Bhanger glaucwscens 30 ], Brahmi et al. Litsea glaucescens Mexican Bay. Each year, around 2 million people are infected by antibiotic resistant bacteria in USA and thousands die due to infections with clinical complications [ 8 ].
All extracts presented moderate antiproliferative activity against the cell lines evaluated, HeLa being the most susceptible of them. DMSO did not exceed 0. The results of the antiproliferative activity evaluation of L. HPLC chromatogram of L. In this sense, Kinjo et al.

Litsea glaucescens Kunth — The Plant List
The first of them increased slightly during the autumn and summer, which is related to the major concentration of phenolic compounds produced by the plant as response to the environmental conditions. Bars with different superscript indicate statistical differences ALGE: Metabolically active cells reduced tetrazolium salt to colored formazan crystals, which were dissolved with glaucescwns isopropyl alcohol.
In this context, natural agents emerge as a safe alternative to reduce the problem of the oxidative stress and antimicrobial diseases.
