Abstract

This study was focused on determining the total polyphenols content and biological activities from wild Rhus pentaphylla fruits at two different maturity stages, (stage 1: green-yellow fruits and stage 2: purple-red fruits Highly significant (p≤0.01) increase was observed in total phenolic contents of fruits ranging from 158.65±0.06 to 177.57±0.06mg Eq.AG.100 mg-1DW. In contrast, both total flavonoid (from 157.34±0.07 to 152.69±0.14mg Eq.Cat.100mg-1DW) and condensed tannins contents (from 200.26±0.30 to 131.23±0.24mg Eq.Cat.100mg-1DW) showed dramatic decreases (p≤0.01). Evaluation of biological activities has provided good effects. Our results show the importance of using this wild fruits in pharmaceutical industries.
