|Title:||Maprang “Bouea macrophylla Griffith” seeds: proximate composition, HPLC fingerprint, and antioxidation, anticancer and antimicrobial properties of ethanolic seed extracts|
|Abstract:||© 2019 The Author(s) In this study, the Maprang (Bouea macrophylla Griffith) seeds of 3 Thai varieties of this plant were studied in terms of nutrition, phytochemicals, chemical antioxidants and the bioactivity of their extracts. Maprang seeds revealed high levels of carbohydrates, dietary fiber, energy, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, and calcium. The Maprang seed extracts possessed a high polyphenolic content and exhibited antioxidant properties against DPPH˙, ABTS˙+, and ferric reduction. Additionally, 18-compounds were charaterized by RP-HPLC-DAD with two being recognized as gallic acid and ellagic acid and 16-unknown gallotannins. The HPLC fingerprint was composed of 4 major compounds. The extract showed active growth inhibition against leukemia, lung cancer cell lines and for 15 strains of bacteria. It is known to be particularly effective in drug resistant cells. Our results indicated that maprang seeds are a new natural source of nutrition, minerals and phytochemicals that may be applicable for use as a food supplement and as an effective drug in the treatment of certain diseases.|
