Chemical Constituents of Tephrosia Purpurea Family: LeguminocaeAuthor(s): V. K. Agnihotry, S. P. Sharma, N. Agnihotri and R. C. Saxena
A triterpenoid saponin was isolated from Tephrosia purpurea family leguminocae. It showed maximum 79% yield in water extract over soxhletion, which afforded three fractions. Fraction CF3 was found biologically active. F2 shows 84% mass cell stabilizing activity. This fraction upon isolation and purification yielded a biologically active principles.
