EFFECT OF GROWTH AGE PERIOD ON BIOCHEMICAL COMPOSITION OF PLANTAGO MAJOR PLANT
Author: Lana Yousif Mutalib
Objectives: The present study was aimed to find the effect of growth age period of Plantago major leaves on the biochemical composition of the plant.
Methods: Leaves of P. major have been assessed for it is total phenolic, total flavonoid and total tannin contents at different growth age period (vegetative and generative).
Results: revealed significant differences in biochemical compositions between two growth age periods of the plant, generative leaves exhibited significant amount of flavonoid (0.12±0.002 mg QE\g DW) and tannin contents (0.12±0.002 mg GAE\g DW) while a significant total phenolic contents were expressed by vegetative leaves (0.015±0.001 mg GAE\ g DW).
Conclusions: The research findings emphasized great effect of growth age period on biochemical composition of the P. major leaves.
Keywords: Vegetative period, Generative period, Total phenolic content, Total flavonoid, Total tannin content
