Evaluation of in Vitrio Antimicrobial Potential and Phytochemical Composition of Some Medicinial Plants against Pathogenic Microbes in Kashmir, India

Tahmeena Hassan | Dr R C Swami


Abstract: Background: With no new antibiotics in the market and the rapid emergence of multi drug resistance, currently there is a crisis type situation in public health. The need to find some alternative sources of antimicrobials is essentially the need of the hour. The current study evaluates the antimicrobial and anti fungal activity of methanolic and aqueous extracts of some traditionally used medicinal plants in Kashmir valley, India Methods: Antibacterial and antifungal assays were performed by agar well diffusion methods. Bacterial strains employed were Bacillis subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella Pneumonia, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus vulgaris, and Eschechiae coli. Fungal strains employed were Pencillium chrysogenum, Aspergillus fumigates and Sacchoromyces cerevisiae and Candida Albicans. The qualitative phytochemical screening was performed by using the standard methods. Conclusion: The present study deciphers the antimicrobial potential of the plants which can be harvested for future antimicrobial use.
