    Introduction: Apigenin-7-O-β-D-glucuronide methyl ester is a bioactive flavonoid, has been isolated from the ethyl acetate leaf extract of Manilkara zapota, and shown both in vitro and in vivo anti-inflammatory activities. Objective: The present study was aimed to evaluate the in vitro antioxidant activities of bioactive flavonoid apigenin-7-O-β-D-glucuronide methyl ester from the ethyl acetate leaf extract by in vitro antioxidant assays such as 1, 1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) and nitric oxide (NO) assays. Materials and Methods: The in vitro antioxidant assays such as DPPH and NO were carried out using standard methods. Results: The results showed that the apigenin-7-O-β-D-glucuronide methyl ester (25, 50, and 100 μg/mL) has significant DPPH and NO free radical inhibiting activity at 100 µg/ml was 83.26%, 86.19% with half maximal inhibitory concentration (IC50 ) values of 36.38 and 29.74, whereas the standards, ascorbic acid, and 3,5-di-tert- butyl-4-hydroxytoluene at 10 µg/ml, exhibited 54.21% and 56.75% with IC50 values of standards 4.49 µg/ml and 3.93 µg/ml, respectively. Conclusion: From this study, it can be concluded that the apigenin-7-O-β-D-glucuronide methyl ester, exhibited significant scavenging activity on DPPH and NO free radical inhibiting activity, and could serve as a potential source of natural antioxidants, for the development of therapeutic antioxidant drugs.
