conducted chemical analysis of some edible oils of Syzigium aromaticum (Clove), Nigella sativa (Kalonji) and Eruca sativa Miller (Taramira) and determined antimicrobial activity against bacteria and fungi by agar well diffusion assay.
Here the work partly done by our predecessors on Brassica campestris (Sarson), Ricinus communis (Arund) and Eruca sativa (Taramira) was extended further to determine the components of these oils responsible for antibacterial activity.
Seeds investigated for the antibacterial activity were Brassica campestris (Sarson), Ricinus communis (Arund) and Eruca sativa (Taramira).
To shed light onto this issue, we investigated the influence of an Eruca sativa seed extract on the function of primary human immunocompetent cells of healthy donors in vitro and investigated a broad concentration range of 3-100 [micro]mol/l.
Based on these parameters we could not find evidence for pure Erucin or Eruca sativa seed extract to adversely impact healthy immunocompetent cells of the human body in concentrations <12 [micro]mol/l.
NK cells play a pivotal role in the defense of tumor diseases and we finally wanted to know if an Eruca sativa seed extract and isolated Erucin have influence on NK cells' anti-tumor function, expressed by viability and also by degranulation capacity towards cancer cells.

Hence this prompted us to screen the seed extracts, present work focuses on exploring different solvent extracts of Eruca sativa seeds against a panel of micro organisms and determine its chemical composition.
Antibacterial activity of Eruca seed extracts: The antibacterial activity of five different organic extracts of Eruca sativa (chloroform, ethyl acetate, acetone, ethanol and methanol) were screened for both Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria.
GC-MS: GC-MS chromatogram analysis of the ethyl acetate extract and methanolic extract (Figure 2 and 3) of Eruca sativa showed a total of 18 peaks and 11 main peaks of which 5 and 7 peaks were not identified in both the extracts.
