He included 52 species with 43 infra specific categories under Berberis and 11 species under Mahonia from the Indian region. Recent trend in research on Berberis species, however directed the workers to focus more towards oncology, toxicological studies and clinical trials. Pavel, [ 97 ]. Chemical diversity of various Berberis species is illustrated in Table 3 Tab.

The fibers are very long, thick walled lignified mostly with pointed tapering ends, while a few are observed to be having blunt to forked ends [ Plate 4Figure 3o-q]. The xylem fibers are very long highly thickened with narrow central lumen and mostly tapering pointed ends or at places with truncated ends [ Plate 7Figure 5b 1 and b 2 ]. Alkaloids of berberidaceous plants – IX: Published online Feb It shows a single layer of epidermis, the cells of which are of cubicle to tangentially elongated type.


The phloem fibers have been reported to be of plain type only but our findings have shown that there are two types of fibers viz. Some of the epidermal cells are elongated to form short unicellular trichomes whose walls are very much thickened so as to leave a narrow lumen within them. Hepatoprotective activity of Berberis integerrima extract in rats treated with CCl4: Generation of reactive oxygen species by a novel berberine—bile acid analog mediates apoptosis in hepatocarcinoma SMMC cells.

The present article summarizes its usage in eye and liver disorder, fever, kidney and gall stones along with anticancer activity. The fibers are long with thickened walls having a perceptible lumen with mostly pointed ends, but in some cases the fibers have blunt ends. RESULTS Pharmacognostic investigation of root Macroscopic characters The roots are thick, woody yellowish brown, cylindrical, more or less knotty and covered over by a thin brittle bark.

This review will be useful for researchers to approach the newer berebris by exploring varied pharmacological activities like anti diarrheal, antispasmodic, anti malarial, etc. Proceedings of the 19th International Congress of Americanists. Habitat Dependent Variations in berberine content of Berberis asiatica Roxb. Literature on Phyto-chemistry reveals that the species are rich in alkaloids, of which biologically active ‘Berberine’ is the major and potential one.

The transverse section of a young stem [ Plate wristataFigures 1 and 2] shows a wavy outline and it consists of a single layer of epidermis comprising of cubical to radial elongated type of cells covered over by a thick cuticle.

Quantitative microscopy Determination of certain leaf constants such as palisade ratio, stomatal number, revlew index and vein islets were carried out as per the method described in Ayurvedic Pharmacopoeia of India.

In the British Pharmacopoeia, the alkaloid berberine- the active principle in several species of Berberis and Mahoniahas been incorporated for its successful use in the treatment of oriental sore. In vitro and in vivo studies. This is followed by a wide zone of secondary phloem, which is intersected in between by wide funnel shaped medullary rays. Tomita and Kugo, [ ]. Hussain SF, Shamma M.
