Pharmacognosy knowledge of drugs and pharmaceuticals | Greek: pharmakon (drugs) and gnosis (knowledge)

Babylonians made clay models of man
Egyptians very apt in the practice of embalming
Pedanios Dioscorides De materia medica libre cinque (five volumes), 600 plants
(Rome) Galen described the method of preparing formulas containing plant and animal drugs and the term
Galenical pharmacy originated (Cold cream Galens cerate)
C.A. Seydler coined the term pharmacognosy in his dissertation in 1815 (title: Anaclectica pharmacognosthica)
Fluckiger most comprehensive definition of pharmacognosy : simultaneous application of various scientific
disciplines with the object of acquiring knowledge of drugs from every point of view
J.A. Schmidt Lerbuch der Materia medica

Pharmacognosy an applied science that deals with the biologic, biochemical and economic features of natural drugs and
their constituents that originate in the plant and animal kingdom
Appropriate Solvents:
General Process of Extraction 1. Fats - Hexane
Removes substances that can be dissolved by the solvent/menstruum 2. Resins - Alcohol
The undissolved portion of the drug is known as the marc 3. Chlorophyll - Acetone
Product of extraction process: Percolate/Extractive 4. Chrysarobin - Hot benzene

Crude Drugs undergone only collection and drying

Natural Substances have not had changes made in their molecular structure as found in nature
Derivatives/ Extractives chief constituents obtained by extraction
Geographic source & Habitat region in which the plant or animal yielding the drug grows
Indigenous growing in their native countries
Naturalized growing in foreign land


1. Collection (small scale) collection time: part of the plant that constitutes the drug is highest in its content of AI

2. Harvesting (large scale) Collection time

Information stored in DNA is transferred to RNA and then expressed in the structure of proteins
Two steps in process: Transcription, Translation

Types of RNA

Translation (Protein Synthesis)
Information in mRNA translated into primary sequence of a protein in 4 steps:
o Activation of tRNA
o Initiation - small ribosomal subunit attaches mRNA at the initiation codon site and the first tRNA attaches
o Elongation - Transfer RNA (tRNA) translates the mRNA into the amino acid sequence
o Termination - Elongation continues until a stop codon is encountered
Start codon: AUG (methionine)
Stop codons: UAA, UAG, UGA
