Abstract

The antibacterial and free radical scavenging activity, and the general toxicity of two diarylheptanoids, hirsutanolol (1) and oregonin (2), and a flavonoid, genkwanin (3), isolated from the methanol extract of the seeds of Alnus glutinosa, were assessed by the 96 well-based serial dilution antibacterial assay using resazurin as an indicator of cell growth, the DPPH assay, and the brine shrimp lethality assay, respectively.
