Title : Bioaccumulation trend analysis of insulin supporting elements in anti diabetic medicinal plants and hierarchal presentation based on decision tree


In this study, Elemental Hierarchal Decision Tree’ was developed to aid in the selection of anti-diabetic medicinal plants species on the basis of elemental content preponderance. Neutron activation analysis (NAA) was used to investigate the bioaccumulation trends of 22 elements in 10 medicinal plants commonly used in Adamawa state, Nigeria for the treatment and management of diabetes mellitus (DM). From the results of the study the essential nutrients such as K, Na, Fe and Co are most effectively translocated by Leptadenia hastata with translocated factor (TF) = 1.51, 1.27, 1.90 and 2.83 respectively. Hymenocardia acida was found to be most effective for majority of the radioactive elements, Sm, Yb, Th, Lu and U with TF = 24.65, 33.46, 82.33 and 25.00 respectively. On the basis of tissue accumulation, the leave of Leptadenia hastata ranked highest in cumulative concentration of elements and Anogeissus leiocarpus ranked highest in cumulative concentration of elements in the stem bark sample. The root bark sample of Jathropha gossypiifolia was ranked highest in cumulative concentration of elements. On the whole, Ca, K and Mg (macro elements) and Cl, Fe, Zn and Mn (micro elements) are the most representatives of essential minerals found in the order of cumulative concentrations in all medicinal plants tissues investigated
