Antioxidant, Antimicrobial and Anti-Inflammatory Activities Valorisation of Methanol Extracts of some Species Growth in the Mountain of Megriss Setif Algeria


In aiming to recover the floristic biodiversity in the mountain of Megriss, several species were chosen haphazardly and studied for their antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activities. The antioxidant properties were evaluated through the ability of the extract to scavenge DPPH (1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl) radicals, the antimicrobial activity was tested with three bacterial strains and one yeast (Staphylococcus aureus ATCC25923, Escherichia coli ATCC 25922, Bacillus subtilis ATCC6633 and Candida albicans ATCC1024 ) and the anti-inflammatory activity was evaluated with proteins denaturation test. The results show that Phlomis crinita was an excellent antioxidant extract compared to the used standard due to the high countenance of polyphenol, however Arabis pubescens (Desf.), Gagea granatellis subsp. Granatelli M and Rumex algeriensis Barr. Et Murb may better anti-inflammatory agents.
