Anti-inflammatory and Antioxidant Activity of Quercetin-3, 3’, 4’-Triacetate

T. Gusdinar, R. Herowati, R.E. Kartasasmita and I.K. Adnyana

Abstract:
Quercetin (3,5,7,3',4'-pentahydroxyflavone) was chosen as the lead compound in development of the anti-inflammatory agent due to its low gastric ulcer side effect in addition to its COX-2 and iNOS inhibitory activities. This study aims to obtain data showing antioxidant potency and anti-inflammatory activity of quercetin-3, 3’ and 4’-triacetate. Antioxidant potency was determined by DPPH radical scavenging and lipid peroxidation inhibitory methods, while anti-inflammatory activity was determined using carrageenan induced-rat paw oedema test. The results showed that the anti-inflammatory activity of quercetin-3, 3’ and 4’-triacetate was significantly higher than that of quercetin. Percentage of oedema inhibition of quercetin-3, 3’, 4’-triacetate and quercetin was 14-49 and 2-8%, respectively. However antioxidant activity of quercetin-3, 3’ and 4’-triacetate was lower than that of quercetin. IC50 of quercetin-3, 3’, 4’-triacetate and quercetin applying DPPH radical scavenging method was 325.57 and 16.23, respectively, while that of lipid peroxidation inhibitory method was 161.5 and 5.25, respectively.
