Abstract

Bioefficacy Of Heliotropium Ellipticum Ledeb.I. Antimicrobial Screening

Author(s): S. C Jain, B Singh

Aerial parts of Heliotropium ellipticum were sequentially extracted in petroleum ether, benzene, chloroform, ethanol and alkaloid rich fractions (petroleum ether and chloroform). Various extracts and reference antibiotics (tetracycline/mycostatin) were screened against selected bacteria and fungi and the resultant inhibition zone(s) and the activity index of crude drug were measured. The sequential extracts exhibited weak antimicrobial activity but it is interesting that the alkaloid-rich fractions demonstrated pronounced activity.
