Description :
The plant is a thick glabrous climber. The inflorescence is a spike of 20-30 senile flowers. The fruit is glabrous, 6 mm in diameter, initially green, turning black on drying. Leaves are coriaceous, 10-18 by 5-12.5 cm broadly ovate, acuminate, glabrous.

Characteristics and Constituents : Pepper contains volatile oil, the crystalline alkaloids-piperine, piperidine and piperettine, and a resin. The minor alkaloids present are piperitine, piperolein A, piperolein B, piperanine, trichostachine. The volatile oil contains large amounts of terpenes and ?-pinene, phellandrene, dipentene and sesquiterpenes. The pungency is ascribed to piperine and the resin. The leaves contain hentriacontane, hentriacontanone, 4-methyl triacontanone and b sitosterol. They do not have any of the alkaloids and isobutyl amides found in the fruit.

Actions and Uses : Extracts of the fruit of P.nigrum showed slight selective anthelmintic activity against cestodes. The volatile oil from the fruit showed antifungal activity. The naturally occurring alkaloid, piperine displayed CNS depressant activity in mice. antipyretic effects in rabbits given typhoid vaccine, and analgesic activity in tail clip pressure in mice. Piperine enhances the pesticidal properties of pyethrin, white the benzene extracts are markedly fungitoxic. When given orally to rats at 100 mg/kg it showed slight febrifugal activity. Used commonly as a culinary seasoning. Prescribed for dyspepsia, flatulence, diarrhoea, used as gargle for sore throat, and as febriftige in intermittent fevers. A poultice made from pepper, salt and vinegar is used to soften Corns. Unani system uses black pepper as a carminative, aphrodisiac and antispasmodic. It is also used to relieve diarrhoea. It is used with ginger and P. longum for viral hepatitis.

It is commonly used as a spice all over India. Since piperine and other pepper alkaloids have chemical structures similar to that of the mutagenic urinary safrole metabolite (3-piperidyl 1-(3-4-methylene dioxyphenyl)-1-propai-ione), these components of black pepper are suspected to be mutagenic and carcinogenic. Safrole occurs in black pepper. In rats, the oral LD, of safrole is 1950 mg/kg body weight, with major symptoms including ataxia, depression and diarrhoea. Dietary safrole at levels of 0.25,0.5 and 1% produced growth retardation, stomach and testicular atrophy, liver necrosis, biliary proliferation and primary hepatomas.
