Amaranthus Viridis DNA Polymerase, Antioxidant, Antimicrobial and Colon Cancer Study
S. G. Funde
Pathogenic and non-pathogenic infection is one of the major burden on society form past and future days. It could be reduced by providing g proper diet and medicine and also reduce the risk of diseases. Our present work had carried out on methanol extracts of green and pink Amaranthus Viridis to investigate some medicinal properties. Amaranthus Viridis are analyzed for their polymerase inhibition, antioxidant, antimicrobial and colon cancer cell proliferation activities. The present results suggest that all the assayed Amaranthus Viridis leaves are having DPPH antioxidant potential A1 had the highest 66.59 % antioxidant properties. Methanol extract of aerial parts of Amaranthus Viridis was checked for antimicrobial activity against various pathogens like Micrococcus luteus indicated that the A1was the most potent activity (78.96% inhibition) as compared to the other extracts. B1 shows maximum polymerase activity compare to other extracts. Colon cancer cell proliferation study suggests A1 to B2 activity was decreased cell line inhibition activity.
