Yu-Xia FU, De-Sheng NING, Zheng-Hong PAN


This work aimed to evaluated the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities of extracts from Callicarpa longissima. The antioxidant activity was determined by DPPH method , the results indicated that the dichloromethane extract, ethyl acetate extract and n-butanol extract showed the strongest antioxidant capacity with the IC50 values of 12.39 μg/mL, 10.51μg/mL and 11.36 μg/mL. The anti-inflammatory activities was measured by NO assay, which showed the dichloromethane extract and ethyl acetate extract possess a significantly NO inhibition with the IC50 values of 8.75 μg/mL and 7.25 μg/mL. The results provide theoretical basis for development and utilization of this plant.
