Momordica charantia is a well known plant in Asia including India which posses wide range of pharmacological activities. The plant have been used as drug in India as folk remedy in the form of decoctions and infusions to treat the deficiency disease such as anti-hyperglycemic activity.
The entitled work is entirely depends on the investigation of chemical compounds which are responsible for anti-hyperglycemic activity. The research avenue made over here get succeeded by endorse new moiety from the roots of the plant belonging to the group of alkaloids, amino acids and glycosides this are coded as McReX-1 McReX-2, McReX-3, McReX-4, McReX-5, McReX-6, the present article will gives only chemical names and spectral interpretation, among above all moiety McReX-5 have been shown a resemble anti-hyperglycemic activity when compared with glibencalimide in STZ induced diabetic rat model.
