Abstract

IN-VITRO ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITY OF SALICORNIA BRACHIATA (ROXB.) AGAINST SELECTED PATHOGENS

Prasanna Lakshmi K., Lakshmi Narayana V. and G. M. Narasimha Rao*

ABSTRACT

Salicornia brachiata (Roxb.) is halophyte occurs in the estuarine and mangrove habitats of East & West coasts of India. In the recent years Salicornia plants are widely used in several applications such as vegetable, paper making and extraction of edible oil. This communication deals with the antimicrobial activity of Salicornia brachiata against some plant and human pathogens. Plant parts of S. brachiata, were collected from mangrove habitats of Godavari estuary, Kakinada, dried and extracted successfully with hexane, chloroform, methanol and water, using Soxhlet extraction apparatus. The antimicrobial activity of the plant extracts on the various test organisms, including multiple antibiotic resistant bacteria were investigated. In vitro screening of S. brachiata plant extracts showed greater activity in inhibiting the growth of bacteria and fungi.

Keywords: Antimicrobial Activity, In vitro Screening, Multiple Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria, Salicornia brachiata, Well Diffusion Method.
