Abstract

Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a degenerative disease that continues to increase in number in Indonesia and is a disease that is spread throughout the world due to unbalanced nutritional conditions. Treatment of diabetes mellitus is a chronic and lifelong treatment. Treatment of diabetes mellitus, such as the use of insulin and oral antihyperglycemia drugs, is relatively expensive, is used for a long time and can cause unwanted side effects. There are many plants that have potential as antihyperglycemia drugs. One of the active compounds that act as antihyperglycemia is flavonoids.Flavonoids derived from various types of plants studied are thought to act as antihyperglycemic agents. Flavonoids are known to have the ability to scavenge free radicals or act as natural antioxidants. The antioxidant activity of flavonoids is related to phenolic –OH groups which can capture or neutralize free radicals (such as ROS or RNS). Flavonoids can play a role in pancreatic tissue damage caused by DNA alkylation due to alloxan induction as a result of improving the morphology of the rat pancreas.

Abstract

Anticancer drugs are primarily aimed at inhibiting the growth and proliferation of cancer cells. The soursop plant (Annona squamosa L.) has the potential to be developed as an anticancer drug. This plant contains several active compounds including flavonoids, borneol, camphor, alkaloids, terpenes, saponins, tannins, polyphenols, and polyketide compounds. This study was conducted to assess the efficacy of the polar fraction of soursop leaves on cytotoxic activity based on the IC₅₀ value in T47D cells. This research is experimental in vitro study using cell line T47D. The methanol fraction of soursop leaves was diluted with DMSO and DMEM to obtain a concentration of 500; 250; 125; 62.5; 31.25 µg/ mL cisplatin with a concentration of 50:25:12,5: 6,25:3,125 µg/mL. The methanol fraction of soursop from the highest concentration of 500 µg/ml has average viability of 46.77% and the average percentage of viability will increase in proportion to the decrease in the concentration of the test compound. The IC50 value shows the concentration value that results in the inhibition of cell proliferation by 50% of the population. In conclusion, the methanol fraction of soursop leaves have an anticytotoxic effect on the T47D cell line through the role of flavonoid metabolites.
