Abstract

The aqueous and methanolic extract of the leaves of Zizyphus nummularia were obtained from successive solvent extraction. The methanolic extract was further solvent extracted with water saturated n-butanol solvent and organic layer was acidified with 1 N KOH to obtain the raw saponin extract. Different concentrations of extracts were treated with alpha amylase enzyme in phosphate buffer (pH 6.9), their spectroscopic estimation was done at 540 nm after stopping the reaction with DNS. All the extracts have produced significant enzyme inhibition and their IC50 value was observed to be 114.16 µg/ml ± 1.30 to 137.87 µg/ml ± 1.82.
