Tüzün CY, Toker MC, Toker G - Pharmacogn Mag (2011)

Bottom Line: Gentiana olivieri Griseb. (Afat) (Gentianaceae), which has many bioactive compounds is used as antidiabetic, hepatoprotective, digestive aid, antidepressant, and antianemic in traditional medicine.Anatomical characters of the species were observed to be similar to the usual features of Gentianaceae anatomy.Intraxylary phloem, which was primarily the distinguishing feature between Gentianoideae and Menyanthoideae sub-families was observed in G. olivieri roots.

ABSTRACT

Background: Gentiana olivieri Griseb. (Afat) (Gentianaceae), which has many bioactive compounds is used as antidiabetic, hepatoprotective, digestive aid, antidepressant, and antianemic in traditional medicine.

Materials and methods: Root, stem, and leaf sections of G. olivieri were taken free hand or by sliding microtome and examined on light microscope.

Results: Anatomical characters of the species were observed to be similar to the usual features of Gentianaceae anatomy.

Conclusion: Intraxylary phloem, which was primarily the distinguishing feature between Gentianoideae and Menyanthoideae sub-families was observed in G. olivieri roots.

Figure 0001: Gentiana olivieri Griseb

Mentions: Flowered plants were collected in summer from Sivas (Turkey) [Figure 1]. Identification of the specimen was determined by the key presented in “Flora of Turkey and the East Aegean Islands”.[1] Voucher specimen were deposited in the Herbarium of the Faculty of Science, Ankara University, Turkey (Acronym: ANK).
