Abstract

White frangipani (Plumeria alba L.) is tropical and subtropical plants, have been familiar used in many traditional medication as well as aromatherapy, especially for the flower part. Scientific study, but was not so many, reporting some pharmacological and toxicological effects of this plant which lead to more depth study at molecular level. This review describes the pharmacological and toxicological effect of the white frangipani and followed by its perspective on the future molecular medicine by identifying the protein target based on those biological effects. Hopefully this review could help scientist to get the summary from various study on white frangipani and raise the idea to study more about this plant at molecular level.

Key words: White frangipani, molecular medicine, traditional medication, plant.
