ABSTRACT: The current study focuses on evaluating chemical composition and antimicrobial activity of seed oil of Broussonetia papyrifera; a widely used Chinese medicinal plant. The chemical constituents of the oil were evaluated by GC‑MS analysis. Antimicrobial activity and minimum inhibitory concentrations were determined by disk diffusion and agar dilution methods. The seed oil contains 46 different phytoconstituents where major compounds were hexadecanoic acid (43.6%), heptadecene‑8‑carbonic acid (17.5%) and caryophyllene (8.4%). Seed oil exhibited inhibitory effect on Staphylococcus aureus, Proteus vulgaris, Bacillus cereus, and Enterobacter aerogenes, while it showed no such inhibitory effect on fungal strains. The studies revealed that majority of the compounds in oil were saturated fatty acids and their derivatives. The oil possessed significant antibacterial activity against selected bacterial strains while tested fungal strains were completely resistant to B. papyrifera seed oil.

INTRODUCTION: Essential oils have been used in the manufacture of perfumes, deodorants, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. Since various plant based essential oils and their derivatives are extensively used in different industries, proper characterization of essential oils is utmost important. Besides, chemical characterization, bioactivity assays have become an integral part of phytochemical research. Most essential oils have high therapeutic value and therefore employed in treating number of ailments by means of inhalation 1.
Oils extracted from different plants have profound applications even in treating coronary heart diseases 2, hypertension 3, hyperglycemia 4, and cancer 5‑7. Many oils are used for their relaxant, stimulant, depressant, and antiviral properties8. Studies have indicated the application of essential oils as antimicrobial agents against a wide spectrum of pathogenic bacteria and fungal strains 9‑12.
For India, Broussonetia papyrifera (L.) Vent. is an introduced species belonging to the family Moraceae. It is widely distributed in China, Korea, Japan and Thailand. Plant is significantly used in traditional Chinese medicine. It is said to be astringent, diuretic, tonic, vulnerary, diaphoretic and laxative 13, 14. The fruits are used in the treatment of impotency and ophthalmic disorders15. papyrifera possesses significant anti‑inflammatory, antinociceptive, anti‑ hepatotoxic, antimicrobial, cytotoxic, and antioxidant activities 16‑22. The leaves and fruits of B. papyrifera are reported to have volatile oils23, 24. However, no studies are conducted on the chemical properties of seeds of B. papyrifera. In view of this, the present study was aimed at evaluating chemical constituents and antimicrobial activity of seed oil.
MATERIALS AND METHODS:
The specimen collected was identified as Broussonetia papyrifera (L.) Vent. using Flora of Bangalore 25 and further authenticated by National Ayurveda Dietetics Research Institute, Bangalore (voucher specimen ‑ RRCBI/MCW/09). Separate voucher specimens were maintained in the herbarium of the research center. Fruits of B. papyrifera were collected and seeds were separated, processed, and stored for further study.
About 100 g of dried seed powder was subjected to hydrodistillation for 8 hours in a Clevenger apparatus. The extracted seed oil was collected by solubilizing in hexane. At room temperature, hexane was allowed to evaporate completely. The hydrodistillation extractions were repeated several times and yield was pooled and stored at 4 °C.
Gas chromatography – mass spectrometry:
GC‑MS analysis was performed on Shimadzu GCMS‑QP‑2010S apparatus using a RTX‑5 column (30 m ´ 0.25 mm; 1.0 mm film thickness). The carrier gas was Helium at a flow rate of 1.0 mL/min. Oven temperature was programmed at 150 °C (1 min), 150 – 280 °C at 5 ºC/min and 280 °C (15 min). The injection port was set at 150 °C. Significant quadrupole MS operating parameters included interface temperature 280 °C, electron impact ionization at 70 eV, ionization temperature of 200 °C and with scan mass range of 40 – 600 m/z at a sampling rate of 1.0 scan/s. The compounds were identified by comparing retention time and mass spectra with the MS literature data, NIST, and WILEY library 26‑28.
Antimicrobial activity: Microbial cultures: The oil was tested against thirteen bacteria and four fungal strains. Bacteria included Escherichia coli NCIM 2931, Staphylococcus aureus NCIM 5022, Salmonella abony ACM 5080, Enterobacter cloacae NCIM 2015, Klebsiella pneumoniae NCIM 2957, Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 27853, Proteus vulgaris NCIM 2027, Bacillus cereus NCIM 2155, Bacillus subtilis NCIM 2480, Bacillus polymyxa NCIM 2540, Enterobacter aerogenes NCIM 2340, Salmonella spp. MTCC 1168 and Salmonella typhi. Antifungal assay was conducted on Candida tropicalis MTCC 184, Candida albicans MTCC 183, Candida glabrata MTCC 3019 and Saccharomyces cerevisiae NCIM 3044.
The microorganisms were procured from American Type Culture Collection (ATCC), National Collection of Industrial Microorganisms (NCIM), Australian Collection of Microorganisms (ACM) and Microbial Type Culture Collection (MTCC) institutes. Bacterial strains were maintained on Nutrient agar whereas fungi on Sabouraud dextrose agar.
Disc diffusion assay:
Antimicrobial activity of the oil was determined by disk diffusion method29. The culture media used in the assay were Mueller Hinton agar for bacteria and Sabouraud dextrose agar for fungi. The agar medium was poured into the petriplates to a uniform depth of 4 mm and allowed to solidify. Overnight grown inoculums were adjusted to 0.5 Mc Farland and were spread over the surface of media, using a glass spreader to ensure the confluent growth of the organism. Sterile discs of 6 mm size were then placed aseptically on the surface of the agar media. Aliquots of 15 µL were impregnated on to the discs.
Gentamicin (10 µg/disc) and Amphotericin B (20 µg/disc) were used as positive controls for bacteria and fungi respectively. The inoculated plates were incubated for 24 hours at 37 °C for bacterial strains and for 48 hours at 30 °C for fungi. The diameters of inhibition zones were used as a measure of antimicrobial activity and each assay was performed in triplicates. The activities were expressed as resistant, if the zone of inhibition was less than 8 mm, intermediate (9-11 mm) and sensitive if more than 12 mm 30, 31.
Minimum Inhibitory Concentrations:
The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) values were determined by agar dilution method29. Different aliquots of seed oil were added aseptically to molten Mueller Hinton agar media to prepare agar containing oil with concentrations 0.25%, 0.5%, 1%, 2%, and 4% (v/v). The resulting agar solutions were vortexed, poured into sterile petridishes, and allowed to set for 30 minutes. The plates were then inoculated with bacteria that were inhibited in disc diffusion assay. Plates were incubated at 37 °C for 24 hours and then observed for presence or absence of growth. From the results, the MIC was determined as the lowest concentration of oil required to inhibit the growth of the microorganism.
RESULTS AND DISCUSSION:
The hydrodistillation of the seeds yielded 1.1% (w/w) pale yellow oil. The chemical compounds and their relative percentage resulted from GC‑MS analyses are listed in Table 1, in the order of their elution. The seed oil revealed presence of 46 compounds accounting for 98.3% of the oil. About 74.2% of the total seed oil was fatty acids and their derivatives, while 24.1% were volatile essential oil components. The major constituents of seed oil were hexadecanoic acid (43.6%), heptadecene-8-carbonic acid (17.5%) and caryophyllene (8.4%). Caryophyllene was the major sesquiterpene found in the oil besides traces of their derivatives. Compounds such as caryophyllene oxide, alpha‑humulene, humulene oxide, alpha‑selinene, beta‑selinene, 9‑octadecenoic acid, and tetradecanoic acid were present in excess of 1%.
Some of the medicinally important compounds were tetradecanoic acid, dodecanoic acid, octadecenoic acid, linoleic acid, and sesquiterpenes such as caryophyllene, humulene, and selinine.
Fatty acids and their derivatives accounted for major part of the seed oil. Hexadecanoic acid, commonly known as Palmitic acid was present at a whopping 43.6%. It is reported that oil extracted from leaves and fruits of B. papyrifera also contained hexadecanoic acid and its derivatives in higher quantities 23, 24. Palmitic acid, a saturated fatty acid in different forms is used as a release agent, natural additive in food products and other organic products. They are also used in the manufacture of detergents and cosmetics. Paliperidone palmitate, synthesized using the oily palmitate ester as a long-acting release carrier medium is used in the treatment of schizophrenia32‑34.
Hexadecanoic acid ethyl ester acts as antioxidant, hypocholesterolemic nematicide, pesticide, anti-androgenic flavour, haemolytic, and 5‑alpha reductase inhibitor35. Octadeca-9,12-dienoic acid (linoelaidic acid) is a geometric isomer of linoleic acid and is found in partially hydrogenated vegetable oils. Though present in less than 5%, other fatty acids like tetradecanoic acid, dodecanoic acid, octadecenoic acid, linoleic acid, and their derivatives are known to have medical and industrial applications36‑40.
Earlier studies on oil extracted from leaves of B. papyrifera revealed that oil was rich in fatty acids and contained octadecanoic acid, hexadecanoic acid, eicosanoic acid, and 6,10-dimethyl-2-undecanone in higher concentrations23. Supercritical carbon dioxide extraction of chemical constituents of oil from fruits and their GC‑MS analysis showed presence of fatty acids and their derivatives like 10,13-octadecadienoic acid, Me palmitate, Me stearate and Me oleate as major constituents 24. The present study revealed that the seed oil is rich in fatty acids and their different forms.

RT- Retention time
Seed oil comprises of sesquiterpenes (24.1%) and its derivatives. They are widely used as anticancer, immunosuppressive and anti-inflammatory agents 41. Caryophyllene and caryophyllene oxide are present in relatively moderate levels in B. papyrifera and they are used in the manufacture of medicaments and in the treatment of chronic degenerative and non‑degenerative diseases 42. Considering their inexpensiveness and benign properties, fatty acids are widely used as natural additives in food products and organic compounds. Since the food industries are keen to reduce the use of synthetic additives, oil extracted from seeds of B. papyrifera can be employed in maintenance or extension of the shelf life of food products.
Antimicrobial activity: Of the thirteen bacteria studied, seed oil of B. papyrifera inhibited growth of four bacteria viz. S. aureus, P. vulgaris, B. cereus, and E. aerogenes. All the four bacteria were found to be sensitive as the zone of inhibitions were more than 12 mm (Table 2).

Present study is the first report on chemical composition of seed oil of B. papyrifera and its antimicrobial activity. In B. papyrifera, so far Papyriflavonol A is the potent antimicrobial agent isolated from the root bark19. In the present study, four bacterial strains viz. S. aureus, P. vulgaris, B. cereus, and E. aerogenes were found to be sensitive to B. papyrifera seed oil indicating the presence of antimicrobial compounds. The study evidenced that the four fungal strains were resistant to the seed oil.
CONCLUSION: Major constituents in the oil extracted from seeds of B. papyrifera were saturated fatty acids and their derivatives which are highly useful in food processing industry. Many therapeutically important essential oil components were present in the seed oil. Owing to significant antibacterial activity, seed oil might be a good source for developing disinfectants and antibiotics.
