Abstract

Antimicrobial Activity Of Cocculus Hirsutus(Linn)

Author(s): K Mangathayaru, V Venkateswarlu

The in vitro antibacterial activity of the extracts and isolates of Cocculus hirsutus (root) has been studied against Bacillus subtilis and Escherichia coli. The total methanol extract, total alkaloid mixture and the two isolates have shown significant activity against the organisms used, almost comparable with the standard antibiotics, benzyl penicillin and streptomycin: This in vitro testing also resulted in activity guided isolation of two antibacterial principles from the root.
