Curcuma caesia – Black Turmeric

Therefore we have selected the rhizome of this plant and evaluated the antioxidant and antimutagenic activity of some of the selected extracts against indirectly acting mutagen cyclophosphamide. The crude extracts of each solvent were dried in water bath caesla kept for further uses. But their amount was found to be reduced with the administration of the extract at different ucrcuma. Literature reviews of Sarangthem and Haokip [41] also confirms that maximum curcuminoids, oil content, flavonoids, phenolics, different important amino acids, protein and high alkaloids are contained in the rhizome of this species.

The cell suspensions were centrifuged at 10, rpm for 10 min and supernatant was removed. From the results it was found that all the extracts showed strong effective antimutagenicity against cyclophosphamide. Free Radic Biol Med. Dev Toxicol Environ Sci. S9 is the mitochondrial enzyme mix required for metabolic activation of indirect acting mutagens like cyclophosphamide. For antigenotoxic studies, animals were divided into eight groups and micronucleus assay was employed and for biochemical analysis serum sample was collected from the blood and SGOT, SGPT analysis was performed.

With the same procedure measurement of the gallic acid standard was also recorded. It is shown for the first time that MECC has protective effect against genotoxicity induced by CP in bone marrow cells as well as protects against toxicity induced in the liver and kidney by CP.


It was also to have the protective effects against the liver and kidney. Glutathione reduced GSH was estimated following[ 32 ] with slight modifications.

The samples were prepared in triplicate for each analysis and the mean value of absorbance was obtained. The entire test was performed in triplicate.

Glutathione reductase GR was assayed in the liver and kidney following. The inhibition mixture was calculated using the formula: Trends and challenges in phytomedicine: Besides, the removed kidney and liver were washed with phosphate buffer saline and blotted with filter paper and kept in the deep freezer for further analysis.

The phenol content of the C. The results were based on the number of induced revertant colonies detected.
