Abstract: The cytotoxicity of crude alkaloid extracts obtained from the leaves and rhizomes of all the South African members of the family Menispermaceae (seven genera and 13 species) was tested against MCF7 (breast), UACC62 (melanoma) and TK10 (renal) cancer cell lines. While most of the extracts were active, Albertisia delagoensis and Antizoma angustifolia exhibited significant inhibition of cellular growth at TGI (total growth inhibition) values lower than 6.25 µg/ml.
