|Abstract:||Native stingless bee propolis (or cerume) has begun to be studied in the last decades, mainly focused on its pharmacological properties. In this study, however, the chemical composition of diverse samples of Tetragonisca angustula propolis was compared via ESI-MS fingerprinting and ultra-high performance chromatography-mass spectrometry with extracts of Schinus terebinthifolius Raddi (Anacardiaceae), a possible source of resins. These results confirmed that the samples of T. angustula propolis, independently of their geographic origin, presented a similar composition to the flowers of S. terebinthifolius. The evaluation of their biological activity (antioxidant, antimicrobial and cytotoxic) showed that the plant extract was more active than the T. angustula propolis samples, in spite of their similar composition, possibly due to quantitative variations in the composition due to freshness.|
