Anil Kumar [119]


Abstract: In traditional medicinal therapies, several plant extracts and phytochemicals have been reported to impart remedial effects as better alternatives. Murraya koenigii (M. koenigii) belongs to the Rutaceae family, which is commonly used as a medicinally important herb of Indian origin in the Ayurvedic system of medicine. In vitro antimicrobial efficency of leaves extracts of M. koenigii was performed by disc diffusion method against six Gram positive bacterial (Bacillus cereus, Bacillus megaterium, Bacilus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Staphylococcus subfava) nine Gram negative bacterial (Alcaligenes fecalis, Enterobacter aerogenes, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus mirabilis, Proteus vulgaris, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Pseudomonas pseudoalcaligenes and Salmonella albicans) and two fungal strains (Aspergillus brasiliensis, Candida albicans). The most suspectable bacteria strains were Bacillus subtilis and Staphylococcus aureus whereas not showing antifungal activity. The leaf extracts in organic solvants (CH3OH) showed better antimicrobial activity as compared to aqueous extracts. Result of present study shows that the leaves of M. koenigii having antimicrobial activity and can be used as natural antimicrobial agent.
