Plants are important natural materials used in complementary medicine. In this study, antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of Scorzonera papposa DC. collected from Duhok (Iraq) and Gaziantep (Turkey) regions were determined. Extracts of aerial parts and roots of the plant with ethanol were obtained. Antioxidant and oxidant potentials were determined by using Rel Assay Diagnostics kits. Antimicrobial activities were tested against bacteria and fungus strains using the agar dilution method. In our study, it was determined that S. papposa has important antioxidant activity. Also, It was found that extracts of plant parts were effective at 50-800 µg/mL concentrations. As a result, it was determined that S. papposa could be a natural antioxidant and antimicrobial agent that can be used in complementary medicine.
Bitkiler tamamlayıcı tıpta kullanılan önemli doğal materyallerdir. Bu çalışmada Duhok (Iraq) ve Gaziantep (Turkey) bölgelerinden toplana Scorzonera papposa DC.’nın antioksidan ve antimikrobiyal aktiviteleri belirlenmiştir. Bitkinin aerial parts and roots’ının ethanol ile özütleri çıkarılmıştır. Antioxidant ve oxidant potansiyelleri Rel Assay Diagnostics kitleri kullanılarak belirlenmiştir. Antimikrobiyal aktiviteleri agar dilüsyon metodu kullanılarak bakteri ve fungus suşlarına karşı test edilmiştir. Yaptığımız çalışmada S. papposa’nın önemli antioksidan aktiviteye sahip olduğu belirlenmiştir. Ayrıca bitki kısımlarının özütlerinin 50-800 µg/mL konsantrasyonlarda etkili olduğu görülmüştür. Sonuç olarak S. papposa’nın tamamlayıcı tıpta kullanılabilecek doğal bir antioksidan ve antimikrobiyal ajan olabileceği belirlenmiştir.
