Purpose: Opuntia elatior Mill. (Family: Cactacea) is a xerophytic perennial bushy shrub, 1-3 m tall. It is native of Caribbean, Central America and northern South America, but actually it is fully naturalized in many part of the world like Mediterranean, Australia, Africa and India. Ripe fruits of this plant contain red pigment i.e. betanin which i...

The leaves of the plant Annona squmosa were collected, powdered and extracted successively with different solvents. The extracts were subjected to preliminary phytochemical screening, which revealed the presence of alkaloids, flavonoids, carbohydrates, saponins, tannins, and steroids. The TLC and HPTLC techniques were used for qualitative determina...

The aerial parts (fresh leaves, pods, flowers) of the plant Sesbania grandiflora were collected powdered and the powder was initially defatted with petroleum ether (60-80°C). The marc was further macerated with ethanol for 72 hrs. The extract was preserved at room temperature for further studies.Preliminary Phytochemical screening was done which re...
Article
Annona sqamosa (Annonaceae) is known as sitaphal in Hindi and custard apple in English is an important medicinal plant. It has been used traditionally in diarrhea, dysentery, cold, as abortifacient, insecticidal drug etc., so would be more suitable to evaluate the drug. This paper deals with the detailed pharmacognostic evaluation of the crude drug...
Article
To consider potentially new anxiolytic sources, different solvent extracts of leaf of Annona squamosa were investigated and compared with the standard drug diazepam in mice using elevated plus maze and open field behavior test paradigm of anxiety. Doses (100 and 200 mg/kg) of petroleum ether, chloroform, ethyl acetate, acetone, methanol and diazepa...
