Comparative in vitro Study of the biological activity and chemical composition extracts of Helicteres isora L. obtained by water and subcritical water extraction

Comparative in vitro Study of the biological activity and chemical composition extracts of... Objectives: Subcritical water extraction technique is considered as an environmentally extraction technique. The aim of this study was to compare the different characteristics of water extract and subcritical water extract of Helicteres isora L. Materials and Methods: Water extraction was performed under the following conditions: 25°C, 24 h, and solid-to-water ratio 1:30. Subcritical water extract was carried out under specific conditions (pressure  =  10 bar, temperature  =  160°C, solid-to-water ratio  =  1: 30, time  =  30  min). Chemical composition analysis was performed using GC–Mass chromatography. Anti-biofilm activity in the terms of anti-attach and removal of biofilm were assessed using the ELISA reader method and reading absorbance at 570  nm. Anti-microbial activity against Bacillus cereus, Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus saprophyticus, and Bacillus subtilis was investigated by measurement of inhibitory zone diameter. Anti-enzymatic and antioxidant properties were also assessed. Results: The results of GC–Mass analysis showed some components extracted in subcritical method which were absent in water extract such as octadecanoic acid, hexadecanoic acid, and berberin. Antioxidant activity of the two tested extracts revealed that subcritical water extract had more antioxidant capacity than water extract (P ≤ 0.05). The two tested extracts exhibited anti-enzymatic activity against polyphenol oxidase enzyme with better performance of subcritical water extract. Anti-biofilm activity of the two extracts implies that, in the case of preventing biofilm formation, both extracts had similar efficiency but in the removal of biofilm, subcritical water extract showed better performance. Both extracts had anti-microbial activity against B.  cereus, S. aureus, S. saprophyticus, and B.  subtilis with better performance of subcritical water extract. Anti-enzymatic assay also showed similar results. Conclusions: Subcritical water extract of H. isora showed more antioxidant activity as well as anti- biofilm, anti-bacterial, and anti-enzymatic activity rather than ordinary water extract. Key words: Helicteres isora L.; subcritical water; anti-biofilm; antioxidant; anti-bacterial. © The Author 2019. Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of Zhejiang University Press.

Statistical analysis All analyses were performed in triplicate and are expressed as means ± standard deviation (SD).

Results and Discussion Chemical composition of water extracts of H. isora The obtained results of chemical composition analysis by GC– Mass chromatoraphy revealed that various chemical components including aldehydes, alchohols, alkaloids, fatty acids, and esters are present in extracts of H. isora (Figure 1). Some differences in chem- ical composition of the two examined extracts were observed and some chemicals were present only in subcritical extracted extract (including hexadecanoic acid, Octadecnoic acid, and berberine). The main reason of these observations might be attributed to the specific characteristics of the subcritical method in extracting com- pounds. Subcritical water can be an alternative approach for the extraction of components with low polarity. With the aid of this method, several components with low polarity could be select- ively extracted at various temperatures (100–374°C) and pressure. Under subcritical water conditions, increasing temperature resulted in weakening of hydrogen bonding of water and enhancement of dielectric constant of molecules of water (Teo et  al., 2010). As the temperature of water reaches 225°C, the dielectric constant of water reaches close tor the dielectric constant of methanol and ethanol at ambient temperature (Miller et  al., 1998). Other re- ports pointed out more efficiency of subcritical water extraction method in extracting different chemical components. Nastić et al. (2018) reported that extraction of bioactive components such as gallic acid, catechin, chlorogenic acid, vanillic acid, caffeic acid, and epicatechin through subcritical water extraction from trad- itional Serbian medicinal plants had better performance (Nastić et al., 2018).

According to statistical analysis, antioxi- dant activity of the two extracts of H. isora significantly differed (P ≤ 0.05).

Abstract

Objectives: Subcritical water extraction technique is considered as an environmentally extraction technique. The aim of this study was to compare the different characteristics of water extract and subcritical water extract of Helicteres isora L. Materials and Methods: Water extraction was performed under the following conditions: 25°C, 24 h, and solid-to-water ratio 1:30. Subcritical water extract was carried out under specific conditions (pressure  =  10 bar, temperature  =  160°C, solid-to-water ratio  =  1: 30, time  =  30  min). Chemical composition analysis was performed using GC–Mass chromatography. Anti-biofilm activity in the terms of anti-attach and removal of biofilm were assessed using the ELISA reader method and reading absorbance at 570  nm. Anti-microbial activity against Bacillus cereus, Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus saprophyticus, and Bacillus subtilis was investigated by measurement of inhibitory zone diameter. Anti-enzymatic and antioxidant properties were also assessed. Results: The results of GC–Mass analysis showed some components extracted in subcritical method which were absent in water extract such as octadecanoic acid, hexadecanoic acid, and berberin. Antioxidant activity of the two tested extracts revealed that subcritical water extract had more antioxidant capacity than water extract (P ≤ 0.05). The two tested extracts exhibited anti-enzymatic activity against polyphenol oxidase enzyme with better performance of subcritical water extract. Anti-biofilm activity of the two extracts implies that, in the case of preventing biofilm formation, both extracts had similar efficiency but in the removal of biofilm, subcritical water extract showed better performance. Both extracts had anti-microbial activity against B.  cereus, S. aureus, S. saprophyticus, and B.  subtilis with better performance of subcritical water extract. Anti-enzymatic assay also showed similar results. Conclusions: Subcritical water extract of H. isora showed more antioxidant activity as well as anti- biofilm, anti-bacterial, and anti-enzymatic activity rather than ordinary water extract. Key words: Helicteres isora L.; subcritical water; anti-biofilm; antioxidant; anti-bacterial. © The Author 2019. Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of Zhejiang University Press.

After 5  min, absorbance was read at 517  nm. The radical scavenging activity of the plant extract was expressed as per- centage of inhibition against control (Braca et al., 2002). Statistical analysis All analyses were performed in triplicate and are expressed as means ± standard deviation (SD).

Results and Discussion Chemical composition of water extracts of H. isora The obtained results of chemical composition analysis by GC– Mass chromatoraphy revealed that various chemical components including aldehydes, alchohols, alkaloids, fatty acids, and esters are present in extracts of H. isora (Figure 1). Some differences in chem- ical composition of the two examined extracts were observed and some chemicals were present only in subcritical extracted extract (including hexadecanoic acid, Octadecnoic acid, and berberine). The main reason of these observations might be attributed to the specific characteristics of the subcritical method in extracting com- pounds. Subcritical water can be an alternative approach for the extraction of components with low polarity. With the aid of this method, several components with low polarity could be select- ively extracted at various temperatures (100–374°C) and pressure. Under subcritical water conditions, increasing temperature resulted in weakening of hydrogen bonding of water and enhancement of dielectric constant of molecules of water (Teo et  al., 2010). As the temperature of water reaches 225°C, the dielectric constant of water reaches close tor the dielectric constant of methanol and ethanol at ambient temperature (Miller et  al., 1998). Other re- ports pointed out more efficiency of subcritical water extraction method in extracting different chemical components. Nastić et al. (2018) reported that extraction of bioactive components such as gallic acid, catechin, chlorogenic acid, vanillic acid, caffeic acid, and epicatechin through subcritical water extraction from trad- itional Serbian medicinal plants had better performance (Nastić et al., 2018).
