Abstract
Aim: The whole plant of Potentilla polyphylla Wall. ex Lehm. (Rosaceae) is valued for its ethno-medicinal properties. It has been used as a folk remedy against a variety of ailments. This study aimed to assess the antimicrobial potential of P. polyphylla taproot extract against human pathogens.
Methods: The antimicrobial activity of the aqueous methanol extract against bacterial strains and clinically important yeast were assessed using the agar diffusion assay and minimum inhibitory concentration studies. Its effect was compared with some standard antibiotics.
Results: The extract showed inhibition of 17.5-30 mm and minimum inhibitory concentrations of 0.01 mg/ml and 0.4 mg/ml against Streptococcus mutans and Candida albicans, respectively. Tested pathogens, except P. mirabilis, were found susceptible to standard antibiotics.
Conclusions: Results showed that P. polyphylla possesses broad-spectrum antimicrobial properties and hence merits detailed phytochemical investigations for its pharmaceutical applications. <div style="display:none;"> <a href="http://escortbayanlara.com" target="_blank">antalya escort Lara</a> </div>
