Antiparasitic Activity of Annona muricata and Annona cherimolia Seeds
05 January 2007 (online)
Methanolic extracts of Annona muricata and A. cherimolia (Annonaceae) seeds were tested for antiparasitic activity against E. histolytica, N. brasiliensis, M. dessetae and A. salina. The acetogenins isolated from these extracts are found to be responsible for the important activity on infective larvae of Molinema dessetae.
