Preliminary Phytochemical analysis:

The preliminary phytochemical investigation was performed with freshly prepared four extracts of Cayratia auriculata by using standard protocols for the existence of different phytoconstituents viz. flavonoids, proteins, alkaloids, tannins, glycosides, anthraquinones, terpenoids, carbohydrates, coumarins, phlobatannins, saponins, and steroids by utilizing standard conventions13,14.


Quantitative estimation of total phenolic content (Folin-Ciocalteu Assay):

Estimation of TFC (total phenolic content): The TFC of all four crude extracts of Cayratia auriculata was assessed with the Folin-Ciocalteu reagent (combination of phosphomolybdate & phosphotungstate) with certain adjustments15. The concentration of (1mg/1 ml) solutions was set up by adding 10gm of powdered extracts of Cayratia auriculata to 10ml respective solvents this was taken as the stock solution, various concentrations 50, 100, 150, 200, 250, 300, 350, 400 450 and 500μg/ml with this stock solution was made following similar protocol for standard (Gallic acid). Briefly, Folin Ciocalteu reagent at a volume of (1.0ml) was put to these concentrations and shacked well. Permitted to allow for 300 sec undisturbed, followed by addition of 4 ml sodium carbonate 20% (w/v) solution of was done. Waited for 30 min, blue color was obtained. The optical density of color created was recorded at 765 nm in the ultraviolet (UV) - Visible spectrophotometer. Three replicates were taken for every concentration standard and test sample and the mean value of OD was obtained and plotted against the corresponding concentration to compute extrapolation of a calibration curve, which resembled Beer's Law. From the average OD values, content of total phenols levels were calculated in relation with gallic acid (standard) equivalents (50-1000 μg/ml),  Y = 0.0018x – 0.0572 ; R2 = 0.9916).The total phenolic content  of tested extracts was communicated as mg GAE/g dried plant extract (mg/g gallic acid equivalent .


Determination of total flavonoid content:

The content of total flavonoid of Cayratia auriculata plant extracts was estimated with the (AlCl₃) aluminum chloride spectrophotometric assay by using quercetin as a reference standard16. In short, to 1ml of the test sample or standard (quercetin) at a concentration of (1mg/ml) addition of 4ml of distilled water was done. Later equal volume of (0.3ml) of 5% (NaNO3) sodium nitrite and 10% aluminum chloride (AlCl₃) solutions were added and subjected for incubation at 370C for 5 minutes followed by the addition of 2ml of 1M NaOH (sodium hydroxide) was done, by adding remaining distilled water the final test reaction mixture made to 10ml. The reaction mixture made into homogenous by shaker (test tube) and the absorbance of the chromophore formed was estimated at 510nm in a triple manner, utilizing a UV-Visible spectrophotometer and the Blank solution taken as the test mixture with no aluminum chloride solution. The content of the Total flavonoid of each extract was communicated as mg QE/g dried plant extract (mg/g quercetin equivalent).


Estimation of antioxidant potential by DPPH (2, 2 -Diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl) assay:

Assessment free radical reduction potential of various crude extracts of Cayratia auriculata carried out by using (DPPH) 2, 2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl which is a stable free radical, concerning free radical-reducing ability or the capability of hydrogen donating property by the protocol followed by Braca et al. with minor alterations17. Various concentrations from 50 to 1000 μg/ml of crude extracts, standard (ascorbic acid) and (0.004%) of DPPH solutions were prepared in methanol. Equivalent volume (1 ml) DPPH solutions (0.004%) (of freshly prepared) in methanol was added to different concentrations of methanol, ethyl acetate, chloroform, and hexane crude extracts of Cayratia auriculata and standard (ascorbic acid) separately. The mixture was made homogenous by vigorous shaking and allowed for incubation (15- 30minutes) in the darkroom at 370C and the (OD) optical density recorded at 517nm by UV-Visible Spectrophotometer.  The Standard selected for this experiment was vitamin C and methanol used as methanol. DPPH in methanol without extract/ standard was kept for control. The scavenging efficiency of the tested extracts or standard was determined by the level of capability of decolourisation of DPPH- deep purple color to varying shades of yellow color. Lowering optical density (OD) of the reaction mixture reveals the peak potential antioxidant capability of tested compounds. The all the values of the present analysis was taken three times and their mean was used for the final data. The percentage (%) scavenging effect of DPPH was expressed with the formula: DPPH scavenging capacity (%) = [(Abs(c) –Abs (t))/ Abs(c)] ×100. In this (Abs(c)) is the control sample absorbance, and (Abs (t)) is the test sample or standard absorbance. The IC50 value represents the concentration, at which inhibition 50% of the DPPH free radical by the antioxidants (test sample or standard) was also calculated in addition to the percentage of inhibition.



Preliminary Phytochemical analysis:

In the course of the most recent couple of years, ethno-medication plants have assumed a pivotal part in the anticipation and therapy of various sicknesses, there are different natural and new restorative mixtures accomplished from plant origin18.  Many types of the Vitaceae family show famous antioxidant and anticancer activities19. In the current investigation, 30 g of Cayratia auriculata powder gave a complete yield of various quantities of extracts with four solvents (Table 1). The phytochemical investigation uncovered the presence of rich auxiliary metabolites incorporated in the plant that flavonoids, proteins, alkaloids, tannins, glycosides, anthraquinones, terpenoids carbohydrates, coumarins, phlobatannins, saponins, and steroids (Table 2). It is recognized that different polyphenolic compounds, similar to phenolic acids, flavonoids, and tannins, which have unbelievable antioxidant and anticancer exercises, are bountiful in plant materials. A few examinations uncovered the positive relationship of the high dietary admission of common antioxidants with decreased malignant growth mortality and coronary illness just as with life expectanc20. Several dietary polyphenolic components acquired from the plant-derived extracts or plants demonstrated correspondingly high antioxidant and cancer prevention agents. Diet having antioxidant-rich vegetables and fruits surprisingly diminishes the danger of numerous malignant growth infections showing that antioxidants could be fundamental specialists for the concealment of various physiological disorders21.

Quantitative estimation of total phenolic content (Folin-Ciocalteu Assay):

In the current examination, the total level of phenols of Cayratia auriculata crude extracts was estimated by FCR (Folin–Ciocalteu reagent) method. Based on the results obtained from the present study it is confirmed that all extracts of Cayratia auriculata possessing considerable levels of phenols, among the other extracts methanol extract exhibited a high level of phenolic content. In methanol extract, total phenolic content is 383.99±1.11mg GAE/g dry extract, followed by ethyl acetate extract (300.66±1.66)mg/g GAE/g dry extract, chloroform (229.55±1.67)mg/g GAE/g dry extract, hexane extract (150.66±1.66)mg/g GAE/g dry extract (Figure:1a &1b). Generally many medicinal plants having high content antioxidants like phenols and polyphenols. Several literature surveys proved that there is a good relationship between phenolic content and their antioxidant properties22. The level of phenolic content in plant extracts is significantly responsible for their antioxidant properties. It is well known that redox properties exhibited by the phenolic compounds are accountable for their antioxidant activity, which plays an important role in decomposing peroxides and neutralizing free radicals23. Based on the strong interactions of phenols with lipid peroxy radical (LOO.), hydroxyl radical (HO.), superoxide anion radical (O2-) which are highly reactive oxygen free radicals, it is indicated that antioxidant potentials of plant extract directly proportional to their phenolics content24,25,26. The antioxidant activity of phytochemicals is responsible for the significant decrease in mortality rates and the occurrence of numerous human disorders27. The result strongly provides evidence that some of the pharmacological properties of this plant are could be due to the presence of an abundant amount of valuable phenolic compounds. The hydroxyl groups present phenols and polyphenols are responsible for free radical scavenging and antioxidant properties, depending on this phenomenon for rapid evaluation of antioxidant and free radical scavenging properties crude extracts, the content of total phenols used as a standard reference28,29.

Determination of total flavonoids content:

The total flavonoid content for methanol, ethyl acetate, chloroform, and hexane crude extract was calculated with the aluminum chloride spectrophotometric method by taking quercetin as standard. Formation of stable complexes by Aluminium chloride due to its interaction with the functional groups such as C-5 or C-3 hydroxide (OH) group and C-4 keto(C=O)groups of flavonoids. Flavonoids are a group of phytoconstituents well known as plant pigments having comparable substance structures. Flavonoids are accounted for that showing many pharmacological and biological properties, for example, antibacterial, antidiabetic, anticancer, and anti-inflammatory activities30. They are responsible for modifying the pathways of cell signalling and are responsible for the production of numerous metabolic important enzymes like lipooxygenase, iNOS, cycloxygenase, and are having high potent scavenging of free radical and antioxidants properties. Numerous C-glycoflavonoids were produced artificially and /or obtained naturally from plant extracts; their structure-activity relationship was determined31. From the mean absorbance values, content of total flavonoid levels were calculated in relation to quercetin (standard) equivalents (50-1000μg/ml), Y = 0.0009x+0.0303; R2 = 0.9943.Total flavonoid content in methanol extract is (64.11±8.89) mg QE/g dry extract, followed by ethyl acetate extract (31.88±3.33)mg QE/g dry extract, chloroform (19.66±6.66)mg QE/g dry extract, hexane extract (6.33±2.22)mg QE/g dry extract (Figure: 2a and 2b). Because of the outcomes revealed by the present study, it is confirmed that all extracts of Cayratia auriculata possessing considerable levels of flavonoids, among the other extracts methanol extract exhibited a high level of flavonoid content.

Estimation of antioxidant potential by DPPH (2, 2 -Diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl) assay:

Free radicals produced in the body are normally scavenged by natural endogenous antioxidant systems which in turn further prevent their harmful effects. These antioxidant systems are greatly playing a crucial role in reducing the harmful effects on nucleic acids (DNA), carbohydrates, lipids and enzymes by neutralizing them. The basic reason for cellular damage by oxidative stress is mainly due to inadequate levels of reactive oxygen species such as( peroxides, hydroxyl radical) and antioxidant systems(glutathione peroxidase)32,33. Such type of cellular damage is typically linked to aging and also many neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson's disease34,35. All four extracts of Cayratia auriculata exhibited considerable levels of antioxidant activity while methanol extract showed high antioxidant activity when compared to other extracts indicated by the outcomes of the present study. Generally, potent antioxidant potential is confirmed by a highest (%) percentage of scavenging effect of free radical and lower Inhibitory Concentration (IC50) values. Extracts of methanol, ethyl acetate, chloroform, and hexane with six different concentrations used in the present study (50,100, 200, 400, 800, and 1000μg/mL), at a concentration of 1000 μg/ml, highest scavenging potential of free radical activity exhibited by methanol extract i.e. (96.46±1.97µg/ml), while ascorbic acid (reference standard) at that same concentration exhibited (97.18±1.12µg/ml), which were close to each other. However, the extracts showed free radical scavenging effect in decreasing order as follows: MECA(96.46±1.97µg/ml)>EECA(94.38±3.12µg/ml)>CECA (92.13±1.69µg/ml) > HECA (90.44±2.80µg/ml). Among the four extracts of studied plant methanol extract presented the potent scavenging effect of free radicals having significantly lower inhibitory concentration (IC50) values in comparison with ethyl acetate, chloroform, and hexane extracts, being 80.66 μg/ml, 117.86μg/ml, 151.54μg/ml, and 169.96μg/ml, respectively. On the other side, reference standard (ascorbic acid) exhibited the IC50 value was 62.95mg/ml (Figure: 3a and 3b).

Figure 3(b): Graphical representation of Inhibitory Concentration (IC50) of various concentrations of (standard)  extracts Ascorbic acid (standard) and extracts of Cayratia auriculata DPPH Assay in DPPH Assay model.


By using excel sheets (2007) graphs were generated inhibitory concentration (IC50) values of ascorbic acid and methanol extracts (Figure: 4 & 5). The above results proved that all the extracts of Cayratia auriculata had a noticeable amount of free radical scavenging activity among them methanol extract was considered a good free radical scavenging activity when compared to other extracts.



Considerable levels of existence of phytochemical compounds such as phenolic acids, flavonoids, tannins, and other compounds revealed by the phytochemical analysis provide strong evidence that Cayratia auriculata is one of the good sources for valuable phytoconstituents as like other species in the vitaceae family. Strong antioxidant properties are exhibited by plant-derived polyphenolic compounds and flavonoids, which are predominantly extracted by methanol extracts and also other solvents to a considerable level. Aluminum chloride assay and FCR assay were performed to determine the level of phenolic and flavonoid content in the present study plant extracts, significant outcomes were revealed for phenolic as well as flavonoid content, later in vitro antioxidant property was analyzed by DPPH assay, the strong antioxidant activity observed by methanol in comparison  to others tested compounds including the standard antioxidant (ascorbic acid)  and the values are close to standard in a dose-dependent manner. From the above results, the present study undoubtedly reveals that Cayratia auriculata is a potent phytochemical source and also possessing efficient antioxidant potential. Further studies are recommended to categorize and isolation of bioactive compounds offering their antioxidant property of the crude extracts of Cayratia auriculata which in turn helps to evaluate the novel drugs from this medicinally valuable species.
