The authors would also like to thank Central Research Institute of Unani Medicine, Hyderabad, Telangana for providing the plant material. The Old World species which different classifications put into the genus or subgenus Seriphidium consist of about species native to Europe and temperate Asia, with the largest number of species in Central Asia.

In this experiment, the extracts and the EDTA interfered with the formation of ferrozine and ferrous complex suggesting that they possess efficient chelating activity and are able to capture ferrous ion before ferrozine.

The variation in the phytochemical profile compared to earlier reports [ 4243 ] in the present work may be the result of the involvement of these compounds in different functional roles in the plants collected from different places of the world.

In general, the extracts under study had significant antioxidant abilities. Rooting of shoots Individual shoots were excised from the culture and inoculated on half and quarter strength medium with auxins viz.


Artemisia genipi Weber ex Stechm. Randomised block design was used for setting up the experiments and each experiment was repeated 2 times with 6 replicates each. Gay ex Besser Artemisia ordosica Krasch. Callus arteemisia of Artemisia absinthium L.

Artemisia (genus) – Wikipedia

Cytological and molecular marker studies showed that regenerated plants showed genetic stability in micro-propagated plants. In vitro mass multiplication and assessment of genetic stability of in vitro raised Artemisia absinthium L.

Briefly, the superoxide anions were generated in 2 ml of phosphate nipagirica mM, pH 7.

The total antioxidant potential of different extracts was evaluated by the green phosphomolybdenum complex formation according to the previously described method [ 21 ]. In this method 15 different strains of bacteria were used, to which the extracts of the plant were given, and the activity was observed. Similarly Nin et al.

Tissue culture of Artemisia annua: Among the extracts, ethyl acetate and alcohol extracts showed the most arte,isia radical-scavenging activities.

This has important scope for mass scale production of this efficient medicinal plant which could be used for plantation and also as a stock material for pharmaceutical uses [ 40 ]. Seriphidium Besser ex Hook.

Oil constituents nilxgirica Artemisia nilagirica var. Artemisia species grow in temperate climates of both hemispheres, usually in dry or semiarid habitats. The plant material leafy aerial portion of A.

In a previous study it has been reported that these oils can have antiulcer activity. Artemisia arborescens — tree wormwood Artemisia arbuscula Nutt.

The therapeutic potential nilagigica herbs or medicinal plants come from its phytochemical constituents. Transition metals such as Fe and Cu upon reacting with perioxides form harmful alkoxy radicals by donating electrons.


ANA showed the highest phenolic content Antioxidants provide a cellular defence mechanism against oxidative stress within the human body.

In vitro propagation of the endangered plant Centaurea ultreiae: The callogenetic response is also reported in various other species of ArtemisiaNin et al. Gray — pygmy sagebrush Artemisia quinqueloba Trautv. In children asthma can be caused by viral infection of respiratory tract or common cold nilairica 30 artemisa, 31 ]. This variation in activity could be due to the different sensitivity of cell line towards the bioactive compounds in the extract or to tissue specific response [ 65 ].

And as the plant is having such therapeutic value, they can get overexploited by the pharmaceutical companies and hence the review suggests the effective way of mass propagation of plant by using plant tissue culture technique.

Medium supplemented with 2. Artemisia bejdemaniae Leonova Artemisia biennis Willd. It is imperative to perform more than one type of antioxidant capacity measurement to take into account the various mechanisms of antioxidant action [ 46 ], hence, we employed series of in vitro assays to get a broader prospective of antioxidant potential of this plant.

Artemisia verlotiorum Lamotte — Chinese wormwood Artemisia viridis Willd.
