Lichens exhibit various biological properties due to the presence of secondary metabolites composed of alkaloids, flavonoids, phenols and terpenoids. Heterodermia boryi is a lichen species with various chemically important biota but remains largely unexplored. The objective of this study is to investigate the phytochemical constituents and anticancer properties of Heterodermia boryi isolated from the hills of Kodaikanal, India. Heterodermia boryi exhibited significant anticancer properties against human lung, liver and breast cancer cell lines. Further studies, should be carried out to explore the potential biological activities of Heterodermia boryi.

Keywords: Heterodermia boryi, lichens, biological activities
