Table 3 Free radical scavenging capacities of C. mimosoides extracts

From: Leaf extract of Caesalpinia mimosoides enhances oxidative stress resistance and prolongs lifespan in Caenorhabditis elegans

Samples EC50
DPPH assay ABTS assay
CM methanol (μg/ml) 8.20 ± 0.29 5.16 ± 0.98
Vitamin C (μM) 40.50 ± 0.27 26.99 ± 0.41
EGCG (μM) 15.56 ± 0.10 8.95 ± 0.34
  1. Values are expressed as the mean ± SD (n = 3)
  2. CM methanol extract showed antioxidant properties. 8.20 ± 0.29 and 5.16 ± 0.98 μg/ml of the extract were the EC50 to scavenge free radical by DPPH and ABTS assay, respectively
