1 Biochemical Characterization and Effects of selected plant extracts on pancreatic cells

 

The extracts of Piper betel and Cinnamomum zeylanicum exhibited lower antityrosinase activity than L-ascorbic acid, which is a potent tyrosinase inhibitor commonly used in skin-whitening cosmetic products. In conclusion, further biological ex vivo investigations on human melanocytes should be done for confirming the tyrosinase inhibitory activity of these plants. The isolated methanolic extracts of Piper betel and Cinnamomum zeylanicum can serve as therapeutic or cosmetic agents can be used as potential sources of novel tyrosinase inhibitors for treating a variety of skin-related disorders.

 

The antidiabetic properties of plants can be evaluated in vitro by several methods such as study of glucose uptake, effect on glycosylation of the haemoglobin and inhibition of alpha glucosidase and alpha amylase enzymes. The mechanism of glucose transport across the yeast cell membrane has been gaining significant importance as an in vitro screening method for evaluating the hypoglycaemic effects of various medicinal plants. The above conducted in vitro studies depict an appreciable increase in the glucose uptake by the yeast cells in combination with the plant extracts.
