The plant is reported to show abortifacient [ 7 ], antimicrobial [ 89 ], and antitussive activities [ 10 ]. Open in a separate window. Minimum Inhibitory Concentration MIC Minimum inhibitory concentration studies of the compounds were performed according to the standard reference methods for bacteria [ 17 ] and filamentous fungi [ 18 ].

Then the residue was crystallised from chloroform to get Vasicine acetate as colorless crystals m. The structure was elucidated using spectroscopic methods: The cytotoxicity was determined according to the method of Balachandran et al.
