Abstract

Flacourtia jangomas is mostly observed in Southeast Asia and East Asia. Its origin is wild and from tropical Asia, especially India. The Common names of Flacourtia jangomas are Coffee plum, Indian plum, Manila cherry and Paniala. Traditional uses of Flacourtia jangomas are that the fruits are used to cure diarrhea and nausea. The leaves and bark are used in bleeding gums and aching teeth, and the bark infusion is gargled to alleviate hoarseness. Flacourtia jangomas fruits are traditionally used to cure diarrhea and nausea.

The leaves and bark are used in bleeding gums and aching teeth. Antibacterial activity of Ethyl acetate extract of the stem was determined by Agar diffusion method against Gram -positive bacteria viz., Staphylococcus aureusBacillus polymyxa, Bacillus megaterium, and Gram-negative bacteria viz., E.coli, Salmonella typhi, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Vibrio cholera. The extracts shown zone of inhibition, ranging from 13 mm-28 mm. The extracts had the profound effect on Gram-negative bacteria with the highest zone of inhibition against Pseudomonas aeruginosashowing 28 mm followed by Vibrio cholerae with 20 mm. Antifungal activity was determined by Agar diffusion against four Fungal strains viz.,Aspergillus niger ,Aspergillus flavusTrichoderma viridae and Neurospora crassa.

The extracts showed modearte inhibitory activity ranging from 2-15 mm. Antioxidant activity of Flacourtia jangomas stem extract was determined by Nitric oxide scavenging assay, the extract showed prominent antioxidant activity with Butylated hydroxy anisole (BHA) as a standard compound.
