SALDANHA, A.A.  e  SOARES, A.C.. Chemical compounds and botanical, ethnobotanical and pharmacological aspects of Byrsonima verbascifolia Rich ex. A. Juss. Rev. bras. plantas med. [online]. 2015, vol.17, n.4, suppl.2, pp.1000-1006. ISSN 1516-0572.

Byrsonima verbascifolia is a species of Brazilian cerrado with extensive ethnobotanical application. The aim of this study was to perform a bibliographic description of original papers and reviews indexed until August 2014 in the databases of the CAPES Digital Library, Scielo, Scopus, Web of Science and Medline, written in Portuguese and English, using the keyword Byrsonima verbascifolia. The chemical and botanical compositions and the ethnobotanical and pharmacological aspects were contemplated. The researches in the reports evaluated the antioxidant, antifungal, antiviral, antimicrobial, molluscicide, antimutagenic, mutagenic, teratogenic, immunomodulatory, toxic and cytotoxic activities of the extracts of this specie. Only one study evaluated the in vivo activity of the Byrsonima verbascifolia Rich ex. A. Juss and proved that the hydromethanolic extract from the leaves does not induce teratogenesis, mutagenesis, stimulant or depressant effect of the immune response. The In vitro methodologies represented the higher number of researches demonstrating the need of scientific investigation using in vivo tests for better assessment of other biological activities mentioned.

Palavras-chave : Byrsonima verbascifolia; murici; anti-inflammatory; chemical compounds; pharmacological activities.
