Abstract

The present study aimed to develop a methodology for quantification of prepared samples by analysis using capillary electrophoresis to analyze apigenin, apigalacatequin and kaempferol from methanol extract fruits and seeds of three selected Byrsonima species. The effect of methanolic extracts from these Malpighiaceae species was assayed in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. Methanol extract in a topical form accelerates the wound healing process by decreasing the surface area of the wound with a significant increase in the rate of wound contraction and tensile strength. B. crassifolia was most effective of the three species tested in promoting diabetic wound healing in rats through the processes of tissue regeneration. Keywords: Byrsonima crassifolia, B. bucidaefolia, B. bahiana, capillary electrophoresis, wound healing, flavonoids.
