Shirsat S. D | Bhusare D. U. [2] | Kadam A. S.


Abstract: Natural product and their components are become increasingly popular as a bactericidal agent. Bryophytes are a group of simple land plants, well-adapted to moist habitats but are also found in grassland and deserts, where they endure prolonged dry periods. In the present investigation fresh samples of bryophyte Barbula vinilis were collected from locality of district Chirang B. T. A. D. of state Assam, India. The present study aimed at evaluating in vitro antimicrobial activity of Hexane extract of Barbula vinilis against Escherichia coli (NCIM 2501), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (NCIM 5029), Staphylococcus griseus (NCIM 2621), Bacillus murcesens (NCIM5037), Staphylococcus marcesens (NCIM 2079), Lactobacillus cosei (NCIM 2651), Saccharomyces cervaceae (ARIFCC 1248), Rhizobium indigofera (ARIFCC 2818), Bacillus subtilis (NCIM 2921) and Salmonella typhimurium (NCIM 2501). The Hexane extract of Barbula vinilis presented its highest bactericidal activity against Staphylococcus griseus (NCIM 2621), Bacillus subtilis (NCIM 2921) and Salmonella typhimurium (NCIM 2501).
