  Inhibition of protein oxidation and DNA damage by reactive oxygen species (ROS) would confer benefit to living organisms exposed to oxidative stress, because oxidized proteins are associated with many diseases and can propagate ROS-induced damage. In this study, the ability of the ethanol extracts of Hypericum retusum Aucher (HR) and Hypericum scabrum L (HSm) to protect bovine serum albumin (BSA) from oxidation and DNA damage by hydroxyl radical derived from the Fenton system (Fe3+/H2O2/ascorbic acid) were measured. The ethanol extracts of HR and HSm at different concentrations (50–1000 μg/mL) efficiently prevented protein oxidation induced by hydroxyl radicals as assayed by protein oxidation markers, including protein carbonyl formation (PCO) and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The effect of ethanol extracts of HR and HSm on DNA cleavage induced by UV-photholysis of H2O2 using pBluescript M13+ plasmid DNA were also investigated. These extracts significantly inhibited DNA damage induced by ROS. Therefore, Hypericum retusum, and Hypericum scabrum extracts may be useful in the food industry as effective synthetic antioxidants.

  The present study was conducted to determine the antimicrobial, antifungal and antioxidant activity of the ethanol extract of Hypericum scabrum L (HSm), Hypericum lysimachioides var. lysimachioides (HL), and Hypericum retusum Aucher (HR) and ethanol extracts of Achillea aleppica D.C. subsp. aleppica (AA), Achillea aleppica D.C. subsp. zederbaueri (Hayek) Hub.−Mor (AZ), and Achillea biebersteinii Afan. (AB). The antioxidant properties of extracts were evaluated using different antioxidants tests, including reducing power, free radical scavenging, deoxyribose assay, metal chelating activities and determination of total phenolic compounds. The extracts obtained from Hypericum and Achillea species showed high antioxidant properties. The protective effects of plant extracts were compared with a well known antioxidant, Butilated Hydroxytoluen (BHT) and α-tocopherol. Total antioxidant activity of ethanol extracts of plants were also tested by using ferric thiocyanate (FTC) and thiobarbituric acid (TBA) methods. Antioxidative activities of plant extracts were found to be comparable with Vitamin E. The results showed that the ethanol extracts of all tested plant exhibited different activity against tested microorganisms. Since most of the studied extracts have good antimicrobial and antioxidant activity, it might be possible to use them as natural food additives that act both as antioxidants and as spices.
