|Title:||PHENOLIC COMPOSITION, ANTIBACTERIAL AND ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITIES OF BRAZILIAN RED PROPOLIS.|
de Alencar, SM
|Abstract:||PHENOLIC COMPOSITION, ANTIBACTERIAL AND ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITIES OF BRAZILIAN RED PROPOLIS. Propolis is a resinous hive product collected by honeybees from various plant sources. It has a complex chemical composition, constituted by various phenolic compounds. Extracts of increasing polarity (n-hexane, chloroform, and ethanol) were obtained from a sample of red propolis from the state of Alagoas. Assays were carried out for determination of contents of phenolics, along with antibacterial and antioxidant activities. The EEP, fractions and sub-fractions showed strong biological activities and were related with phenolic the content compounds contents. The sub-fractions were more bioactive than the EEP and fractions, demonstrating that the antioxidant and antibacterial activities are not a result of synergistic effect between the various chemical compounds in propolis.|
