Abstract

tC-Glycosyl flavones are present in different plant tissues and they exhibit health benefits. In the presentstudy, it was found that C-glycosyl flavones are distributed in different milled fractions of black gram andamong these fractions, husk had the highest content of C-glycosyl flavones. Two C-glycosyl flavones fromblack gram husk were extracted and purified by preparative high-performance liquid chromatography(HPLC) column. The purity of each compound was assessed by analytical C18 column. The structure of eachcompound was confirmed by LC–MS/MS, NMR. The molecular mass of these compounds were found to be[M−H]−, m/z 431.36 and [M−H]−, m/z 431.35 and were identified as vitexin and isovitexin, respectively.Content of vitexin and isovitexin in aqueous ethanol extract was found to be 76 and 65 mg/g of extract,respectively. These C-glycosyl flavones protected DNA and erythrocytes from oxidative damage. The IC50values for vitexin, isovitexin and quercetin for hemolysis were 6, 5.7 and 2.37 �g, respectively. Thesecompounds also triggered the process of apoptosis in HeLa cells by downregulating Bcl-2 level with thesimultaneous upregulation of Bax and caspase-3 protein expression. Thus, C-glycosyl flavones from blackgram husk protected DNA and erythrocytes from oxidative damage and exhibited anticancer activity.
