The free radical scavenging activities of biochemical compounds of Dicranum scoparium and Porella platyphylla
Dicranum scoparium ve Porella platyphylla taxonlarının biyokimyasal bileşiklerinin serbest radikal temizleme faaliyetleri

Sevinç AYDIN [1]

The bryophytes studies carried out in our country are mainly for bryofloristic purposes and the studies on biochemical contents are very limited. Dicranum scoparium and Porella platyphylla taxa of bryophytes were used in the present study carried out to determine the free radical scavenging activities, fatty acid, and vitamin contents. In this study, it was aimed to underline the importance of bryophytes for scientific literature and to provide a basis for further studies on this subject. The data obtained in this study indicate that the DPPH radical scavenging effect of D. scoparium taxon is significantly higher than that of P. platyphylla taxon. It is known that there is a strong relationship between the phenolic compound content of methanol extracts of the plants and the DPPH radical scavenging efficiency. When the fatty acid contents were examined, it was observed that levels of all unsaturated fatty acids were higher in the P. platyphylla taxon than the D. scoparium taxon, except for α-Linolenic acid. When the vitamin contents of species were compared, it was determined that D-3, α -tocopherol, stigmasterol, betasterol amount was higher in Dicranum taxon.

Ülkemizde briyofitler ile ilgili olan çalışmalar genellikle briyofloristik amaçlı olup serbest radikal temizleme aktiviteleri ve yağ asidi içerikleri gibi diğer amaçlı çalışmalar yok denecek kadar azdır. Serbest radikal temizleme aktiviteleri ve yağ asidi içeriklerini belirlemek adına yaptığımız bu çalışmada, briyofitlere ait Dicranum scoparium ve Porella platyphylla taksonları kullanılmıştır. Bu çalışmada bryofitlerin bilim dünyasındaki önemine bir ivme kazandırmak ve bu konuda ileride yapılacak diğer çalışmalara temel oluşturulması amaçlanmıştır. Çalışmamızda elde edilen verilerde Dicranum scoparium türünün DPPH radikal temizleme etkisinin P. platyphylla türüne göre belirgin düzeyde fazla olduğu gözlenmiştir. Bitki ekstraktları içeriğindeki polifenolik bileşiklerin düzeyi ile DPPH radikalini temizleme etkinliği arasında güçlü bir ilişki bulunduğu bilinmektedir. Yağ asidi içerikleri incelendiğinde ise α-Linolenik asit dışındaki bütün yağ asitlerinin P. platyphylla türünde D. scoparium türüne göre fazla olduğu gözlenmiştir. Vitamin içerikleri karşılaştırıldığında, Porella taksonuna göre Dicranum taksonunda D-3, a-tokoferol, stigmasterol, betasterol miktarının daha yüksek olduğu tespit edildi.
