ABSTRACT:
In vitro antimicrobial activity of methanolic extract of Muntingia calabura, Basella alba and Basella rubra leaves was investigated. The extracts exhibited marked antimicrobial activity against gram positive and gram negative bacteria and fungi. Muntingia calabura showed higher inhibitory effect against the pathogens like Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli. Basella rubra showed mild inhibitory activity against Staphylococcus aureus, Basella alba showed good inhibitory activity against Aspergillus niger. A Comparative study shows maximum antimicrobial activity in Muntingia calabura extract.
KEYWORDS:
