Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry Based Metabolite Profiling and In Silico Activity Prediction of Phytoconstituents in Phoenix dactylifera L. Leaves Extracts of Kachchh Region
Keywords:Alpha amyrin, Beta-sitosterol, Gas chromatography, Pass online, Phoenix dactylifera L.
Phoenix dactylifera L. commonly known as date palm is one of the major flora grown in the Kachchh region. Date palm is dioecious plant, that is, it owns separate male and female trees. Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), high-performance liquid chromatography, high-performance thin layer chromatography, and infrared red spectroscopy are some widely utilized sophisticated analytical techniques for the identification of bioactive phytoconstituents in medicinal plants. The present study aims to identify phytoconstituents present in ethyl acetate extract of male and female date palm leaves using GC-MS. These identified bioactive phytoconstituents were subjected to
in silico useful biological activity prediction using pass online server. The study concluded that both male and female extracts were enriched phytochemicals possessing diverse valuable biological activity such as antihypercholestrolemic, anticancer, antineopolastic, lipid metabolism regulator, hepatoprotectant, and apoptosis antagonist.
