Antioxidant activity and phenolic compounds in 32 selected herbs. The present study suggested cyrcuma the methanolic extract of C. The methanolic extract of Curcuma caesia Roxb.

S9 is the mitochondrial enzyme mix required for metabolic activation of indirect acting mutagens like cyclophosphamide.

Serum enzymes as indicators of chemically induced liver damage. The percentage inhibition was calculated using the formula given below: Based on the promising antioxidant and reducing activity, ethanolic, methanolic and aqueous extracts were evaluated for curcima antimutagenic activity by Ames test against indirect acting mutagen cyclophosphamide.

The fractions showed a varied free radical scavenging activity. Bioactive components in Curcuma caesia Roxb. The curchma hydrogen ion is made available to nucleophilic radicals which subsequently quenched their free radicals [42]. The present work supported the increasing evidence that the rhizome extract of C.

caesix Protein measurement with the Folin phenol reagent. On the basis of this it has been hypothesised that the involvement of antioxidant might be considered as the safest approach in the prevention of process leading to mutagenesis. Antioxidant determination by the use of stable free radicals. These preventive agents can inhibit the mutation and cancer initiation process by modulating phase I and phase II enzymes, by blocking reactive species either by scavenging, electron donation or through chelation and thus maintains the DNA structure.

Mice bone marrow micronucleus test was carried out according to. There was no sign of toxicity in the treatment with extracts only since the values caesiw almost near to normal groups, and they are not significantly different from the NC groups [ Table 4 ].
