Evaluation of antioxidant and antigenotoxic activity of two flavonoids from Rhamnus alaternus L. (Rhamnaceae): Kaempferol 3-O-β-isorhamninoside and rhamnocitrin 3-O-β-isorhamninoside

Abstract : The antioxidant activity of kaempferol 3-O-β-isorhamninoside (K3O-ir) and rhamnocitrin 3-O-β-isorhamninoside (R3O-ir), isolated from the leaves of Rhamnus alaternus L., was determined by the ability of each compound to inhibit NBT photoreduction and to scavenge the free radical ABTS+. Genotoxic and antigenotoxic activities were assessed using the SOS chromotest. At a concentration of 150 μg/assay the two compounds showed the most potent inhibitory activity against superoxide anion by respectively 80.4% and 85.6%. K3O-ir was a very potent radical scavenger with an IC50 value of 18.75 μg/ml. Moreover, these two compounds exhibit an inhibitory activity against genotoxicity induced by nitrofurantoine and aflatoxine B1 using the SOS chromotest bacterial assay system in the presence of Escherichia coli PQ37 strain. In this study, we have also evaluated correlation between antigenotoxic and antioxidant effects of K3O-ir and R3O-ir. The highest correlation was showed with R3O-ir (r = 0.999).
