Comparative Analysis of Enzymatic and Antioxidant Properties in Two Varieties of Clitoria ternatea

Moni Nishad | Yashodhara Verma [3]

Abstract: The goal of the present study was to compare the enzymatic antioxidants viz. , superoxide dismutase, catalase, lipid peroxidation, polyphenol oxidase, ascorbic acid oxidase and antioxidant properties in leaves and roots white flowered and purple flowered varieties of Clitoria ternatea. white flowered leaves showed higher enzymatic activity as compared to Clitoria ternatea purple flowered variety. In case of roots the purple flowered variety showed higher lipid peroxidation, superoxide dismutase and polyphenol oxidase as compared to white flowered variety. Whereas white flowered variety roots showed higher catalase and ascorbic acid oxidase activity as compared to purple flowered variety. Clitoria ternatea white flowered leaves and roots showed higher antioxidant activity as compared to purple flowered leaves and roots.
