Abstract DNase I inhibitory potential of water extract of nine Hypericum species (H. umbellatum, H. barbatum, H. rumeliacum, H. rochelii, H. perforatum, H. tetrapterum, H. olympicum, H. hirsutum, H. linarioides) and the most important Hypericum secondary metabolites (hypericin, hyperforin, quercetin and rutin) was investigated. All examined Hypericum extracts inhibited DNase I with IC50 below 800 µg/ml, whereby H. perforatum was the most potent (IC50 = 391.26 ± 68.40 µg/ml). Among the investigated Hypericum secondary metabolites, rutin inhibited bovine pancreatic DNase I in a non-competitive man...
