India correlates Daruharidra to Berberis aristata DC of Key words: Antimicrobial activity, Daruharidra, eye infection, methanolic stem extract. The highest antimicrobial activity of B. aristata root extract was found against S. aureus ( mm) in acetonic extract with an MIC of mg mL-1 and that of leaf . The antimicrobial activity of hydroalcoholic extracts of four Berberis species viz. Berberis aristata, Berberis asiatica, Berberis chitria and Berberis lycium were.

A dark green coloration was indicative of the presence of tannins [27]. J Drug Delivery Ther ;1: International Book Publications; ; 3: Test for Glycosides Glycosides were tested by dissolving a small amount of extract in 1 mL of water.

The homogenized tissue was centrifuged anttimicrobial 7, rpm for 15 min, supernatant was filter-sterilized and used as the aqueous extract. The synthetic herbicides impose serious environmental problems which, ultimately, afflict human health.

Thus, this plant can be used as a potential alternative treatment against drug resistant pathogens.

Variable activities of the plant roots, stems and fruits have been reported against a number of pathogenic bacteria and fungi [34,35]. Activity of Berberis aetnensis root extracts on candida strains.

Some preliminary reports have described the anticancer activity of methanolic extracts of B. The clinical bacterial species used were Staphylococcus aureus, Beeberis subtilis, Escherichia coli, Salmonella typhimurium. Thus this study suggests that Daruharidra and its traded substitutes may be used in treating eye infection caused by Nocardia sp, S. Abstract The genus Berberis Berberidaceae includes about species worldwide, some of which are widely cultivated in the north-eastern regions of Iran.

Phytochemistry and Pharmacology of Berberis Species

Tamilselvi Saravanakumar, Padma Venkatasubramanian, N. Afr J Plant Sci. Phytochemical analysis of various species of this genus revealed the presence of alkaloids, berberjs, phenolic compounds, sterols and triterpenes.

Activith, alkaloids and steroids were not determined in the leaves. Aqueous extracts Fresh roots of B. The extracts significantly inhibited the growth of the employed microbial isolates.

Phytochemical and biological screening of Berberis aristata ยป Advancements in Life Sciences

The mixture was heated to boil. Disk diffusion method was used for the determination of antimicrobial activity.

Alkaloid with wide spectrum of pharmacology activities, J. Determination of total flavonoids content was based on aluminium chloride method. Determination of berberine avtivity in the stem of extracts of Cosinium fenestratum by TLC densitometry. Bereberine and other similar alkaloids have been identified as the main responsible natural compounds for diverse medicinal properties. J Med Plants Res ;5: The South-Khorasan province berberls around Birjand and Qaen is the major field of cultivation for zereshk in the world.

Sample Preparation The plant was cleaned off dirt and unwanted materials antimivrobial successively washing with running tap water and sterile water for times. Purple color is formed at the junction of the two liquids which reveals the presence of carbohydrates. Nevertheless, the presence of these secondary metabolites in the different plant extracts have been reported to have multiple biological effects [11] and possibly attribute to the antimicrobial activity shown by the plant, thereby underlying its potential clinical relevance.


Berberiis has hypotensive, immuno-stimulating, antiinflammatory, antimicrobial, antiprotozoal, activities.

Further studies can be done to test the antimicrobial activity of the extracts with other extraction solvents and identification of acttivity novel biologically active compounds can be done via FTIR Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy analysis.

The cultivation of seedless barberry in South Khorasan goes back to two hundred years ago. The sterilized materials were grounded with a sterile pestle and xctivity in sterile distilled water ml. The most active constituent of Berberis aristata is berberine, a quaternary isoquinoine alkaloid and the content of berberine is used as biomaker of the plant.

Crude Extraction grams of each of dried and powdered plant part was respectively extracted with methanol in specially designed containers.
