Phytochemical analysis and pharmacological applications of Berberis lycium
All the bioactive compounds detected or isolated from the root extract of Berberis lycium were present in the plant, and not by the interaction of plant material with any solvent or through any chemical occurring while extraction or isolation of the plant components. Roots of Berberis lycium showed the presence of alkaloids, terpenoids, tannins, saponins, reducing sugar as major secondary metabolites. The presence of diarylheptanoids in roots was shown by Mansi Gupta (name of the paper). No such diarylheptanoids were observed in the roots of Berberis lycium in the given study. Berberis lycium contain variety of phytochemicals like steroids, flavonoids, alkaloids, tannins, anthoquinonine, Terpenoids, proteins, and carbohydrates. Ikram et al 2008 isolated many phytochemicals from plants like Barberine, Berbericine hydrochloride, Berberine chloride, Berberine –chloroform, chenabine, diphenolic, palmatine, Jhelumine, Karakoramine, palmitive chloroform along with oxyberberine, punjabine, seco-bisbenzylisoquinoline, sindamine, umbellatine, etc.
