Antimycotic potential of Crataeva religiosa Hook and Forst against some selected fungal pathogens. (1/5)

Crataeva religiosa Hook and Forst belonging to family Capparidaceae (Cappaceae) was selected based on its ethnopharmacological uses like diuretic, laxative, lithonotriptic, antirheumatic, antiperiodic, bitter tonic, rubifacient and counterirritant and was investigated to evaluate in vitro antimycotic potential of petroleum ether, chloroform, ethanolic and aqueous extracts against Candida albicans, Candida tropicalis, Candida krusei, Cryptococcus marinus and Aspergillus niger by disc diffusion method. The minimum inhibitory concentrations of C. religiosa extracts were found in the range of 0.062 - 0.5 mg/disc. The ethanolic extract significantly inhibits the growth of selected fungal pathogens, whereas aqueous extract do not show zone of inhibition against the tested Candida species. The results indicate the possible therapeutic uses of the plant as a potent antifungal agent.  (+info)

Anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and selective antibacterial effects of Euadenia eminens root bark. (5/5)

Euadenia eminens Hook f. (Capparaceae) has traditional uses in the management of conjunctivitis, iritis, ophthalmia, tuberculosis, otalgia and rectal prolapse. The fruit pulp is also eaten as an aphrodisiac. In this paper, we report on the anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and antibacterial effects of its roots. A 70 % ethanol extract was tested for anti-inflammatory effect using the carrageenan-induced oedema in chicks. Free radical scavenging, total antioxidant and total phenol content were assessed spectrophotometrically. The extract was tested for antibacterial activity using the agar well diffusion method and micro dilution assays. The 70% ethanol extract gave a maximal inhibition of oedema by 74.18 % at 30 mg/kg. The total antioxidant capacity expressed in terms of ascorbic acid was 0.609 mg/g dry weight. The total phenol in terms of tannic acid was 7.25 mg/g dry weight. The extract also demonstrated free radical scavenging activity yielding IC50 value of 1.175 mg/mL. The root extract however, showed selective antibacterial activity, inhibiting growth of two microorganisms; Bacillus subtilis and Bacillus thurigiensis. The MICs were 500 and 1000 microg/mL respectively. These results may account in part for the ethnopharmacological use of the plant.  (+info)

Capparaceae is a family of flowering plants that includes around 420 species, distributed across 16 to 23 genera. These plants are commonly known as caper family members and are found primarily in tropical and subtropical regions worldwide. The plants in this family are characterized by their four-petaled flowers and their fruit, which is usually a dehiscent capsule or a berry.

Some of the well-known genera in Capparaceae include Capparis (caper bushes), Cleome (spider flower), Crateva (garlic pear), and Polanisia (clasping-leaved thoroughwort). The plants in this family have a variety of uses, including ornamental, medicinal, and culinary purposes. For example, the buds and leaves of Capparis spinosa, known as capers, are used as a seasoning in various cuisines.

It is worth noting that recent phylogenetic studies have suggested that Capparaceae may not be a monophyletic group, meaning it does not include all the descendants of a common ancestor. As a result, some taxonomists propose to merge Capparaceae with another family, Brassicaceae (the mustard family), into a larger group called Brassicales. However, this classification is still under debate and may change as more research becomes available.
