The objective of our present study in order to determine its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activity of aqueous seed extract of Artocarpus heterophyllus.
In this study, we determined its protein content from aqueous seed extract using Nanodrop method and also analyzing its antibody titre against ovalbumin (OVA) by Elisa method and also estimated its proliferation rate against OVA in lysed human whole blood. In addition, analyzing its antimicrobial activity using variable doses of seed extract against gram positive and gram negative bacteria.
The results showed that seed extracts of Artocarpus heterophyllus showed higher amount of protein content at a very lower concentration and also raised its antibody production at higher doses against weak antigen OVA. In contrast, seeds extract showed its anti-inflammatory activity and this activity could be due to reduce its proliferation rate at higher doses and also showed its antimicrobial activity at the same concentration against various bacterial pathogens.
Overall, seed aqueous extract of Artocarpus heterophyllus showed its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activity.
