Salvia belongs to the Lamiaceae family and includes nearly90 species in Turkey. Salvia generally is used for treatment ofcolds, bronchitis and epilepsy. It is commonly consumed as a hotdrink. In the current study, ethyl acetate extract ofSalvia tomen-tosawas investigated for its free radical scavenging capacity usingthe 2,2-diphenyl-1-picryl hidrazyl (DPPH) method and its antioxi-dant property was evaluated. Moreover, the extraction procedureapplied toSalvia tomentosayielded a calculated 5.13%. Its scaveng-ing capacity ranged between 0.03 and 1.7 mg/mL and ethyl acetateextract ofS. tomentosahas represented the minimum scavengingactivity of nearly 3% at 0.03 mg/mL and the maximum scaveng-ing activity of 71% at 1.67 mg/mL. The free radical scavengingeffective concentration (EC) ofSalvia tomentosawas found to be0.91±0.005 mg/mL. In conclusion, it can be used as medicinal plantwith antioxidant property for further investigation.

Antioxidant properties of Salvia absconditiflora extracts and their effects on phase I and phase II gene expressions in HEPG2 cell line
İrtem Kartal, Deniz; Güray, Tülin; Sadi, Gökhan; Department of Biochemistry (2015)
S.absconditiflora is one of the endemic Salvia species grown in Turkey, which is consumed as a herbal tea. Because of the presence of high amounts of vesicles on their leaves, it is very rich in bioactive compounds. S.absconditiflora water and methanol extracts were studied for their antioxidant capacity by 2,2-Diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) and ABTS free radical scavenging assay. Total phenolic and total flavonoid contents were quantified by spectrophotometric methods, HPLC and LC-MS/MS analyses and the ...
Morphology, anatomy, palynology, mericarp and trichome micromorphology of the rediscovered Turkish endemic Salvia quezelii (Lamiaceae) and their taxonomic implications
CELEP, FERHAT; KAHRAMAN, AHMET; Atalay, Zeynep; Doğan, Musa (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2014-11-01)
Salvia quezelii is a very little known local endemic species from Turkey. Since 2005, our revisional studies on the genus in Turkey have been shown that previously known two localities of the species including type locality are wrong, and the species has not been collected since 1970. In this study, the type locality of the species is amended and morphological description of the species is amplified and expanded based on large number of specimens. The anatomy, palynology, myxocarpy, mericarp micromorphology...
Morphology, anatomy, palynology and nutlet micromorphology of the rediscovered Turkish endemic Salvia ballsiana (Lamiaceae) and their taxonomic implications
Kahraman, Ahmet; Doğan, Musa; Celep, Ferhat; AKAYDIN, GALİP; KOYUNCU, MEHMET (Wiley, 2010-01-01)
Salvia ballsiana (Rech. fil.) Hedge, previously known only from the type gathering, is a local endemic species from Turkey. The species was first collected from Golbasi (Malatya) by E. K. Balls in 1935, and was not collected again until 2008, when we found it in Gerger (Adiyaman). The diagnostic morphological characters of this rare endemic species are discussed, including its anatomical, palynological and nutlet micromorphological features. Morphological characteristics of leaves, calyces, corollas and typ...
Taxonomic studies on the genus salvia l. (labiatae) in central anatolia, Turkey
Bagherpour, Safı; Doğan, Musa; Department of Biology (2010)
This research study is a revision of the genus Salvia (Labiatae) in Central Anatolia. The author has carried out extensive research studies conducted in a 3 year period starting from June 2005 by collecting specimens from all the localities in Central Anatolia, Turkey. Specimens collected from Turkey by the other researchers and kept either in Turkey or abroad were also examined. The samples were studied using their root, stem and leaf morphology including essential characteristics of flowers. Using this in...
Scanning electron microscope (SEM) and light microscope (LM) studies on the seed morphology of Verbascum taxa (Scrophulariaceae) and their systematic implications

Verbascum L. is the largest genus of the family Scrophulariceae and includes several species are of medicinal importance. In this study, external seed morphologies of 30 taxa included in Group A belonging to genus Verbascum L. (Scrophulariaceae) in Turkey, have been investigated using SEM (Scanning Electron Microscopy) and LM (Light Microscopy). Light microscope observations showed that seed size ranges from 0.3 mm to 1.5 mm in length and 0.1 to 0.6 in width. Seeds vary from oblong, oblong prismatic, trigon...
