PHYTOCHEMICAL SCREENING AND IMMUNOMODULATORY ACTIVITY OF DIFFERENT EXTRACT OF SPINACIA OLERACIA LEAVESAbstract
The extracts of Spinacia oleracia leaves studied for Phytochemical screening and different extract of Spinacia oleracea leaves was studied for immunomodulatory activity. The immunomodulatory effect was evaluated by delayed type hypersensitivity response using SRBCs. The n-hexane, dichloromethane, methanolic and aqueous extract of Spinacia oleracea leaves was studies for DTH response. The dichloromethane extract of Spinacia oleracea leaves extract showed significant increase in the hypersensitivity response, indicating its effect on cell mediated immunity. From the above result, it was concluded that the preliminary Phytochemical analysis revealed that different active constituent present in different extracts such as carbohydrates, proteins, amino acids, fat, oils, steroids, terpenoids, glycosides, alkaloids, tannins and other phenolics compounds and the dichloromethane extract of Spinacia oleracea has a significant effect on cell mediated immunity.
