To evaluate the effects from the fresh flowers of Pithecellobium dulce (Roxb.) Benth, belonging to the family of Leguminosae subfamily Mimosoideae, a glycoside quercitin has been isolated. The ethyl acetate soluble of P. dulce containing the above glycoside was studied both in silico and in vitro for the anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. The concatenation of the in silico and in vivo has been done. Results indicated the activity of this flavonol glycoside in the protection of HRBC lysis and against the gram positive micro organisms, thus confirming its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.
