Abstract

Objective: Alcea genus belongs to Malvaceae family and this genus is represented by 85 taxa in the world and 21 taxa in the Flora of Turkey. The flowers of Alcea genus contain plenty of mucilage and are used for the treatment of respiratory diseases such as asthma and cough. Alcea dissecta is known as 'Govik, Hiro, Hero' in Turkey, and the flowers and leaves of this species have been used in the treatment of asthma, injury, colds, and gastrointestinal diseases in Turkey. To the best of our knowledge, there is no report on the effect of extraction methods on the biological activity of this plant. In addition, although this species is being used as a medical plant, there is no study of the antioxidant, antiurease, esterase, and anticholinesterase activity of the plant. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate in vitro antioxidant, anti-urease, esterase, anticholinesterase activities of Alcea dissecta using a variety of extracts.
