Screening of Endophytic Bacteria from Anticancer Medicinal Plants

Joshi R D [2] | N S Kulkarni [3]

Abstract: Endophytes, microorganisms that reside in the living plant tissue are mostly unstudied and potential sources of novel natural products for exploitation in therapeutic preparations. Some endophytes produce the same secondary metabolites as that of plant which make them promising sources of novel compounds. This study was conducted with the aim to isolate and identify endophytic bacteria from anticancer medicinal plants. Five different plants were selected to enhance diversity as Catharanthus roseus, Oscimum sanctum, Alovera, Withania somnifera and Murraya konengii. Isolation of endophytic bacteria was done on Tryptic soy agar media and characterized on the basis of morphological and biochemical characteristics. A total 73 bacterial endophytes were obtained from these different plants, among them 10 were get characterized by culture dependant method.
