Active phytochemical and antibacterial potentiality of in-vitro regenerated plantlets of Canscora decurrens (Dalzell)


The present paper deals with in vitro produced phytochemicals of Canscora decurrens (Dalzell) such as alkaloids, flavanoids, phenols, steroids, anthracene glycosides and triterpenoids etc for their antibacterial activities against human pathogenic strains viz. Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Rhodococci sp., Escherichia coli, Proteus vulgaris, Pseudomonas sp, Salmonella sp. and Bacillus stearothermophilus. The investigation suggests that the plant may be used in therapeutic treatments of gastrointestinal disorders, diarrhoea and skin diseases.
Keywords: Phytochemical, regeneration, Canscora decurrens, herbal plant, antibacterial.
