The diluted extracts only contained 0.

The cytotoxic activity of the extracts were evaluated against two lung carcinoma cell lines with varying molecular characteristics using the MTT [3- 4, 5-dimethylthiazolyl -2, 5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide] assay.

Baeckia in the narrow sense comprises 14 species, 13 of which are confined to Australia.

Methods Plant sample collection frutesces identification The fresh leaves of B. Alternative therapy has been extensively used throughout time in the prevention and treatment of various diseases.

In Malaysia and Indonesia, B.

SN carried out the experiment, collected and analysed the data. As antioxidant activities may be attributed to more than one mechanism, the ability of metal ion chelation of B. The hexane extract seems to have a greater effect against the H p53 deficient compared to the A cells functional p53 gene. SM collected, identified and processed the plant samples that was used in this study. A control is the absorbance of the control and A sample is the absorbance of the tested extract.

The branches are used as brooms. The metal chelating percentage was calculated as follows: Three sesquiterpenes have been isolated from the dichloromethane extract of the herb, 2 of them being also well known constituents of several essential oils; humulene epoxide, caryophyllene epoxide, and a new constituent clovane-2,9-diol.

Briefly, cells were plated at a density of cells per well into a well plate and left to incubate overnight. An evergreen, heather-like shrub or small tree up to 8 m tall; bark greyish brown, fissured and flaky; branches upright, then spreading and drooping, with wiry ends.

Rapid colorimetric assay for cellular growth and survival: Synergistic inhibition of human lung cancer cell growth by adenovirus-mediated wild-type p53 gene transfer in combination with docetaxel and radiation therapeutics in vitro and in vivo.

In Indonesia Sumatra, Java the leaves are used as an emmenagogue.

SN and KSS wrote the manuscript. To our knowledge, there is only limited published literature on B.


Lastly the toxicity of the crude methanol frutescrns was evaluated using the acute oral toxicity experiment. The metal chelating percentage was calculated as follows:. The assay was done in the presence of increasing concentrations of extracts under evaluation across a fixed period of time. Footnotes Competing interests The authors declare no competing interest.

Evaluation of selected biological capacities of Baeckea frutescens

This was done to evaluate the safety of using this plant extract for pharmacological studies which will lead towards usage in baevkea. Background Alternative therapy has been extensively used throughout time in the prevention and treatment of various diseases.

All assays were performed in triplicates to ensure their reproducibility. Generally, antioxidant activity depends on the composition of the extracts and the assay methods [ 20 ]. Frutescena MTT assay was conducted in order to assess the cytotoxic activity of B.

The modified method of Murugan and Iyer [ 11 ] was used to test the bleaching drutescens of B. BHA was used as a positive reference standard. The timber is hard, dark brown and very durable but of small dimensions.
