L. Voigt.

(Cucurbitaceae). The antioxidant

activity of the fruit

has

been evaluated by

using three

in vitro

assays and was

com

pared to standard antioxidant

,

Butylated

h

ydroxy

a

nisole

(BH

A

).

All the fractions showed effective H

-

donor activity, reducing power, free radical scavenging activity. The

antioxidant property depends upon concentration and increased with increasing amount o

f the fractions.

The free radical scavenging and antioxidant activities may be attributed to the presence of flavonoid

s

present in the fractions. The results obtained in the present study indicate that the fruit of
