Abstract
Ferns have long been taken as food by human and used as medicaments for the treatment of various types of ailments. However, the medicinal properties and potential therapeutic compounds from this group of plants have rarely been explored. Author?s group has investigated the phytochemicals and potential pharmacological properties of two ferns species commonly found in Malaysia, namely, Dicranopteris linearis and Stenochlaena palustris. A number of unique compounds have been isolated and characterised from these ferns, including a series of acylated flavonol glycosides from Stenochlaena palustris, as well as some highly oxygenated phenols, flavonoids and glycosylated terpenes from Dicranopteris linearis. Some of these compounds, when used singly or in combinations as plant fractions exhibited a wide range of interesting properties, including free radical scavenging, antibiotic potentiating, anticholinesterase, cytotoxic, antioxidative, as well as fibroblast cell growth and cell migration promoting effects. In this presentation, the phytochemicals isolated and characterised from D. linearis and S. palustris done by author?s research group will be shown. Various in vitro pharmacological properties of these compounds and/ or their combinations will also be discussed.
