Abstract

3-?-hydroxy-28-acetyltaraxaren (1) and ?-sitosterol (2) were isolated from an ethyl acetate extract of the stem bark of Anogeissus latifolia. The ethyl acetate and methanol extracts when subjected to antimicrobial screening showed significant inhibitory activity to microbial growth, while the ethyl acetate showed demonstrated significant cytotoxicity to brine shrimp with LC50 of 0.50 ?g/ml. Key words: Anogeissus latifolia, Combretaceae, 3-?-hydroxy-28-acetyltaraxaren, ?-sitosterol, antimicrobial, cytotoxiciy, disc diffusion Dhaka Univ. J. Pharm. Sci. 6(1): 47-50, 2007 (June) The full text is of this article is available at the Dhaka Univ. J. Pharm. Sci. website
