Litsea glaucescens Kunth is a native plant from Central America and Mexico, mainly distributed in the states of Chiapas Nayarit and Veracruz. Thirty-one compounds are identified in the essential oil of Mexican bay (Litsea glaucescens scens), which is dominated by ± % 1,8-cineole, . Thirty-one compounds are identified in the essential oil of Mexican bay (Litsea glaucescens var. glaucescens), which is dominated by ± % 1.

Many parts of the plant contain essential oils that vlaucescens reminiscent of the bay leaf. In contrast, no antimicrobial activity of any of the four extracts was observed against E.
Therefore, the cellular damage would eventually result in the development of chronic diseases like cancer, atherosclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, chronic inflammation, and cardiovascular ills, among others [ 4 ]. These findings are consistent with previous studies from Litsea plants.
Bacterial cell cultures were treated with different concentrations of L. As can be observed, the evident difference among them is the height of the chromatographic peaks related to the concentration of the phenolics.
Seasonal Effect on the Biological Activities of Litsea glaucescens Kunth Extracts
Leaves alternate, petioles 6—11 millimetres 0. Introduction Nowadays, diseases related to oxidative stress and to antimicrobial resistance are considered the main public health concern, leading to the highest mortality rates worldwide [ 12 ]. Lucila Rascon for her technical assistance with the cell culture and the antiproliferative assays. View at Google Scholar K. HPLC chromatogram of L. F6the four extracts had a similar antiproliferative litseaa.

In addition, according to the classification of medicinal plants performed by Wong et al. Thanks are due to Q.
Stimulation, Extraction, and Utilizationlitdea. It is very variable in size and shape of the leaves and as a result, it has an extensive synonymy. Subscribe to Table of Contents Alerts. In addition, based on Blois [ 37 ] and Fidrianny et al. These factors regulate the production of secondary metabolites and subsequently the potential use of medicinal plants [ 17 ]. Seeds are not available for the Mexican Bay. Nevertheless, it was not able to inhibit the growth of E.
In this regard, Borges et al.
These littsea agree with those reported by Iqbal and Bhanger [ 30 ], Brahmi et al. The regression coefficients of the linear correlations for each series are presented in Figure 3.
On the other hand, phenolic compounds are associated with a wide range of biological activities. On the other hand, Cushnie and Lamb [ 6667 ] have concluded that phenolic compounds have different mechanism of action as antimicrobial, such as inhibitors of nucleic acid synthesis, of gkaucescens energy metabolism, or of the cytoplasmic membrane function of the microorganisms.

Retrieved from ” https: Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine. This species has been exploited for different purposes: The goal of the present study was to evaluate the seasonal effect on the antioxidant, lirsea, and the antiproliferative activities of L.
These activities are mainly related to the presence of different compounds such as terpenes and phenolic compounds [ 2223 ].
To contribute litse the biological characterization of this plant, we evaluated its potential as antioxidant, antimicrobial, and antiproliferative agent. It grows in the mountains, on the banks of rivers and is planted in the garden of houses.
The capacity of L. The first of them increased slightly during glaucwscens autumn and summer, which is related to the major concentration of phenolic compounds produced by the plant as response to the environmental conditions.
