Abstract:

In the present study Mushrooms pleurotus ostreatus and pleurotus florida were cultivated on different agro wastes namely as gram (S1), Pea straw (S2) and pearl millet cuttings (S3) for the screening of phytochemical characteristics and antimicrobial activity. Qualitative analysis revealed the phytochemicals alkaloids, saponins, flavonoids and tannins were present in methanolic and aqueous extracts of both Pleurotus spp. while anthraquinones and phobetanins were found absent. Antimicrobial activity was carried out against human pathogenic microorganism Escherichia coli, Stphylococcus aureus, Protius mirabilis and Candida albicans. P.ostreatus cultivated on substrate S1 was recorded for highest antibacterial activity against S.aureus (18 mm), P.mirabilis (13.8 mm) and E.coli (16.2 mm).However methanolic extract of P.florida gave strong antifungal activity against C.albicans (12.5 mm) when compared to P.ostreatus .Therefore results suggested that P.ostreatus and P.florida cultivated on Substrate S1 were found with highest antimicrobial activity in comparison to other substrates.  The results supported the methanolic extracts of P.ostreatus and P. florida might indeed be potential sources of phytochemicals and antimicrobial agents.


Keywords: Peurotus spp., agro wastes materials, phytochemical screening, and Antimicrobial activity.
