Antimicrobial activity of saponin fractions of the leaves of Gymnema sylvestre and Eclipta prostrata


, : Antimicrobial activity of saponin fractions of the leaves of Gymnema sylvestre and Eclipta prostrata. World Journal Of Microbiology & Biotechnology: 11, 2737-2740

The antimicrobial activity of saponin fractions from the leaves of <i>Gymnema sylvestre</i> and <i>Eclipta prostrata</i> was evaluated against pathogenic bacteria and fungi in an in vitro condition. A series of concentrations of crude and pure saponin fractions were tested for antimicrobial activity by zone of inhibition method. The pure saponin fractions were found to be more effective against tested bacterial pathogens when compared to crude saponin fractions.
