    The plants are micro-biosynthetic factories for variety of compounds which are their secondary metabolites. These mainly include alkaloids, glycosides, flavonoids, volatile oils, saponins, etc. The medicinal properties are attributed to the specific bioactive compound or combination of phytochemicals. In present study, Phytochemical analysis of two Rheum species namely, Rheum spiciforme and Rheum webbianum was carried out using different plant parts from wild populations and also from tissue culture raised plants derived from these wild populations. Anthraquinone derivatives including emodin, aloe-emodin and rhein was quantified in analysed plant parts using HPLC method and a comparative analysis was done. The analyzed samples showed presence of various alkaloids, carbohydrates, proteins and tannins. Furthermore, Rheum spp. are shown to contain emodin, aloe-emodin and rhein as main ac.. View More»
