RHUS PENTAPHYLLA FRUIT EXTRACTS COMPARATIVE STUDY ON TOTAL POLYPHENOLS CONTENT OF TUNISIAN WILD RHUS PENTAPHYLLA FRUIT EXTRACTS AND THE EVALUATION OF THEIR BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITIES
AbstractThis study was focused on determining the total polyphenols content and biological activities from wild Rhus pentaphylla fruits at two different maturity stages, (stage 1: green-yellow fruits and stage 2: purple-red fruits Highly significant (p≤0.01) increase was observed in total phenolic contents of fruits ranging from 158.65±0.06 to 177.57±0.06mg Eq.AG.100 mg-1DW. In contrast, both total flavonoid (from 157.34±0.07 to 152.69±0.14mg Eq.Cat.100mg-1DW) and condensed tannins contents (from 200.26±0.30 to 131.23±0.24mg Eq.Cat.100mg-1DW) showed dramatic decreases (p≤0.01). Evaluation of biological activities has provided good effects. Our results show the importance of using this wild fruits in pharmaceutical industries.
