Example text

In separate studies, extracts and fractions of Quercus lusitania var. infectoria galls were found to have larvicidal activity against Culex pipiens, the urban nuisance mosquito (Redwane et al. 2002). Fraction F(2) had an interesting, low LC50 (24 h) of 60 ppm while the LC50 values of gallotannins were 335 and 373 ppm, respectively for the second and fourth instar period. Molluscicidal Activity The acetonic extract and gallotanin of Quercus infectoria galls exhibited high molluscicidal activity against Bulinus truncates, a vector of schistosomiasis (Redwane et al.

Numerous research studies conducted by Voravuthikunchai and co-workers in Thailand showed that the nut gall extracts of Q. infectoria had potent antibacterial activity against a broad spectrum of bacterial pathogens. 05%) exhibited antimicrobial activity against enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia coli (Voravuthikunchai et al. 2004). Acacia catechu, Holarrhena antidysenterica, Peltophorum pterocarpum, Psidium guajava, Punica granatum, Quercus infectoria, Uncaria gambir, and Walsura robusta demonstrated antibacterial activity with inhibition zones ranging from 7 to 17 mm.

The high percentage of the gallic acid in the extract underpinned the potent antioxidant activity exhibited. The results obtained indicated that Quercus infectoria extract had potent antioxidant activity, achieved by scavenging abilities observed against DPPH, and lipid peroxidation. Studies showed that Q. infectoria galls possessed potent antioxidant activity, when tested both in chemical as well as biological models (Kaur et al. 2008) Ethanolic gall extract was found to contain a large amount of polyphenols and to possess potent reducing power.
