The results showed that the TCA cycle, ubiquinone and other terpenoid quinone biosyntheses, N-glycan biosynthesis, other glycan degradation, glycosaminoglycan degradation, GPI anchor biosynthesis, and glycosphingolipid biosynthesis-ganglioseries are the most significant metabolic pathways correlated with CAD genes.
Medicinal property of a plant to control certain disease is attributed to the antioxidant potential of its constitutive compounds such as phenols, terpenoids and flavonoids that work as chemo-preventive and anticancer by affecting metabolic enzymatic reactions taking part in the initiation of carcinogenic compounds and cellular arrest (Malik et al., 2012).
