Abstract:

Lucas Diffusa commonly known as Thumbai (Tamil) decumbent herb is widely distributed in Asian countries and some places in India. The objective of present study was to investigate the presence of various phytochemical constituents and preliminary antimitotic screening for ethanolic extract. The crude EtOH extract of aerial plant of Leucas diffusa were taken under phytochemical investigation revealed the presence of steroids, triterpenoids, flavanoids and carbohydrates. The extract was fractioned and isolated from n-Hexane, Ethylacetate, and Chloroform partitionates by using column chromatography and preparative TLC techniques. The IR spectra of the EtOH extract indicated the presence of OH, C=O, C-H, C-O-C and NH. Cytotoxic properties of plant extracts being developed for cancer treatment are usually evaluated by a variety of in vivo and in vitro tests carried out in animal or plant based models. In the present study we have evaluated the possibility of using plant model the germinating Mung beans (Vigna radiata), for rapid and inexpensive screening of extract exhibiting cytotoxic properties. The EtOH extract showed strong inhibitory effect on seed germination at 100μg/mL, 250μg/ mL and 500μg/mL. Our study shows that germinating V. radiata beans could be used as a convenient model for the preliminary screening of drugs exhibiting cytotoxic properties.
