Abstract:   (232 Views)
Cyperus rotundus (CR) is a traditional medicinal herb, and recent studies demonstrated its pharmacological effects to cure neurological disorders. In our earlier reports, we also found that CR exerts anxiolytic effects and improves memory impairment in hypoxia-induced rats. In vitro CR also effectively ameliorates oxidative stress-induced SH-SY5Y neuronal cell damage. In the present study, we evaluated the phytochemical composition of hexane fraction, and total oligomeric flavonoid fraction of Cyperus rotundus. The GC-MS analysis showed a variety of chemical constituents in the hexane fraction, and the 4D GCXGC TOF-MS analysis also revealed several phytochemicals present in TOF fraction of C. rotundus. The detected phytochemical constituents of hexane and TOF fraction of C. rotundus may account for the reported pharmacological benefits. The study demonstrates the potential use of CR for the treatment of oxidative stress associated diseases.
