The methanolic extract was assessed for its<em> in vivo </em>anti-diabetic effects. The results indicated the presence of alkaloid, protein and amino acids, carbohydrates, glycosides, flavonoids,&nbsp;and&nbsp;saponins along with the highest brine shrimp lethality (90.7 ± 1.8%), α-amylase inhibition (60.2%) and free radical scavenging properties. The diabetic control indicated a significant (p&lt;0.05) decrease in weight and high-density lipoprotein and elevated level of blood glucose, bilirubin, creatinine, urea, triglyceride, low density lipoprotein, very low-density lipoprotein, transaminases, and alkaline&nbsp; phosphatase. All these changes were restored significantly (p&lt;0.05) by treatment of diabetic rats with methanolic extract of <em>I. aucheri</em>. The results show the potential of&nbsp;<em>I. aucheri&nbsp;</em>as a source of therapeutic compounds against diabetic, hyperlipidemia and free radical associated disorders.</p> 2020-10-09T01:26:04+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Antimicrobial activity of volatile compounds produced by endophytic fungi associated with Ocimum sanctum 2020-10-09T13:19:30+00:00 Mohd Taufiq Mat Jalil Darah Ibrahim 2020-10-09T07:31:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
