  • Sedum kamtschaticum Fisch., a native plant of Korea, has been used in Korean traditional medicine in the form of water extract for its capacity to improve blood circulation and for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Since previous research suggests that S. kamtschaticum Fisch. has excellent antioxidant and mushroom tyrosinase inhibition activities, in this study, the root and stem parts of S. kamtschaticum Fisch. are extracted in 70% ethanol (SKS, SKR), fractionated with and in order of n-hexane (SSH), ethyl acetate (SSE, SRE), chloroform (SSC, SRC) and water (SSW, SRW) according to the polarity of each solvent, and tested for its applicability as a cosmetic material. According to the total polyphenol, flavonoid contents and DPPH radical scavenging activity of each fraction, the contents and scavenging activity of the root extractions (SKR) were higher than those of the stem extractions (SKS), ethyl acetate fractions (SSE, SRE) being the most effective. In addition, ethyl acetate fractions had the highest tyrosinase inhibition activity and melanin synthesis inhibition activity used on B16F10 melanoma cells, at the concentration of 10 ㎍/mL. HPLC analysis detected a variety of polyphenols including gallic acid and quercetin. This study suggests the potential role of S. kamtschaticum Fisch. as a natural cosmeceutical material.

  • To address infra-specific relationships of Sedum kamtschaticum Fisch., and to provide the fundamental information for developing new horticultural variations, we analyzed the morphology of individuals in four natural populations (Mt. Gwangdeok, Mt. Samyeong, Mt. Yonghwa, Tongyeong) and investigated the vegetations of these area. Based on 50 morphological characters the principle component analysis (PCA) has been performed. Principle component axis 1, 2, and 3 explain 22.9%, 14.2%, and 7.4% of total variations, respectively. Dot plot of OTUs in PC2 by PC1 area showed that the areas of four populations are completely overlapped. The result of PCA and the statistics of each character indicate that all of morphological characters are overlapped in these four populations. The maximum deviations are found in the characters related in the size and shape of the leaf. In the vegetation analyses, eighteen community plots that we investigated were grouped into 10 subcommunities: subcomm. Boehmeria spicata, subcomm. Artemisia stolonifera, subcomm. Artemisia keiskeana, subcomm. Impatiens nolitangere, subcomm. Crepidiastrum chelidoniifolium, subcomm. Urtica thunbergiana, subcomm. Artemisia gmelini, subcomm. Commelina communis, subcomm. Erigeron annuus-Artemisia princeps, and typical subcommunity.
