Abstract

ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITY OF METHANOLIC TUBER EXTRACT OF CYPERUS ROTUNDUS L.

Dr. R. Rakkimuthu*, M. Muthukumar, S. Aarthi and S. Nishana

ABSTRACT

Antimicrobial efficiency of Cyperus rotundus L. a medicinal plant
(Tuber extract) was examine using methanol as solvent and tested
against human pathogens like Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas
aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumonia, Staphylococcus aureus, Candida
tropicalis and Malassezia furfur using agar well diffusion method. The
methanolic tuber extract had shown zone of inhibition against all the
test organisms at all concentration and zone of inhibition decreased in
size with low concentration of tuber extract. It is revealed that the tuber
extracts of C. rotundus showed maximum zone inhibition against P.
aeruginosa (18.5±0.07 mm) and the minimum zone of inhibition
against E. coli (15.5±0.07 mm) at 1000 μg/ml concentration.

Keywords: Antimicrobial activity, Cyperus rotundus L. medicinal plants, Agar well diffusion method.
