DNA Barcoding, Phytochemical Analysis of Basella Alba and its Correlation with Mouth Ulcer

Ananya N Nayak | Dr. Shruthi SD [2]

Abstract: Basella alba is one of the popular tropical vegetables grownon the coast of India and most of Southeast Asia. Being a reservoir of nutrients it is not only known for its nutritional value but also for the wide array of medicinal value which has been put into application in traditional medicine systems around the world from olden times. This paper tries to explore these medicinal values with a pharmaceutical vision. Mouth ulcershave been one of the medical conditions that widely impact populations with different agents of causes. We have carried out Epidemiology studies on mouth ulcers using bioinformatics tools. DNA sequencing was carried out to confirm the species. Phytochemical analysis of B. albaleaf extract was carried out to confirm the presence of phytochemicals like flavonoids, polyphenols, and terpenoids which are known to be effective in the treatment of mouth ulcers to establish the scientific reason behind using B. alba in the mouth ulcer treatments in ethnomedicines and tested polysaccharide contents with a perspective to inculcate B. alba in the ointment formulations for mouth ulcer.

Keywords: Antiulcer property, ethnomedicines, flavonoids, polyphenols, Sanger sequencing
