Tested compounds Concentration (μg/ml) Inhibition (%) against BuChE IC50
(μg/ml)
Seeds aqueous extract 1 57.11 ± 2.00* 0.74
  10 80.34 ± 2.25**  
  100 94.93 ± 2.00**  
Leaves aqueous extract 1 54.78 ± 1.25* 0.81
  10 76.30 ± 1.50*  
  100 87.11 ± 5.50*  
Roots aqueous extract 1 32.25 ± 2.35 10.35
  10 49.01 ± 3.25  
  100 67.81 ± 3.67*  
(a) Galanthamine 1 44.5 ± 1.00 7.9
  10 59.44 ± 2.5*  
  100 67.5 ± 2.5*  
  1. Significant difference obtained with: *P < 0.05: **P < 0.01
  2. The reported comparisons concern: Seeds aqueous extract versus control(a), leaves aqueous extract versus control(a) and roots aqueous extract versus control(a). Every concentration is compared with its equivalent in the other extract.
