Abstract:

This study investigated the medicinal value of red algae Gracilaria salicornia, arich source of bioactive compounds. The algal aqueous extract was analyzed for anti-bacterial and minimum inhibitory concentration against pathogens. The phytochemical analysis shows the presence of Alkaloids, Saponin, Phenols, Steroids, Proteins, Tannins, Flavonoids, Amino acids and absence of Terpenoids, Anthraquinone. The chromatographical analysis reveals the presence of possible metabolites. The purified active compounds through TLC and crude extract are subject to analyze the in vitro and anti-inflammatory activity and the crude algal extract was subjected for the in vivo anti- inflammatory activity. It was observed that the algal extract have the relatively active against inflammation.


Keywords: Gracilaria salicornia, Phytochemicals, TLC , Anti- inflammatory.
