Abstract

Plants have been exploited for the benefit of humankind to cure diseases/ ailments since prehistoric times. Plant medicinal importance is due to secondary metabolites endowed with specific biochemical/ metabolic/ physiological action on the human/ animal system. A wide variety of functional activities has been attributed to the secondary metabolites or plant-based natural products (PBNPs) that cure common illnesses to cure chronic disorders and their associated long-term complications. PBNPs are bioactive compounds that serve as promising lead molecules for drug development and design. Plants from the family Solanaceae are well-known as common vegetables. Phytochemical analysis of P. minima ethanolic leaf extracts (PMELE) acknowledged an existence of alkaloids, glycosides (anthraquinone, cardiac), carbohydrates, phytosterols, flavonoids, amino acids, tannins, but instead saponins. Additional, GCMS analysis confirmed the involvement of bioactive compounds viz, cyclobutanol; D-Alanine; 2-Heptanol, 6-Amino-2-Methylnh2; 1-Pentanol, 4-Aminonh2; Benzeneethanamine, 3-Fluoro-?.,5-Dihydroxy-N-Methylf; L-Alanine, N-(N-Acetyl-glycyl)-, Butyl Ester respectively. From the study, it is evident that P. minimise is a reservoir of phytochemicals which has been acknowledged by its therapeutic potential through ethnomedicinal uses.
