Abstract:

Microorganisms play a crucial role in living organisms. Some microorganisms are beneficial for us some are pathogenic. The aim of the study is to evaluate the activity of the fruits of Artocarpus lakoocha Roxb. against certain pathogenic microbial strains. Petroleum ether, chloroform and methanol extract of these fruits were used by disk diffusion method on Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella typhi, Bacillus cereus, Salmonella paratyphi and two fungal strains. All the fruit extracts showed the antimicrobial activity against all the microorganisms. Among the three extracts, methanolic fruit extracts exhibited significant activity against the microorganisms and fruit extracts of petroleum ether showed the least activity against the certain microorganisms. The fruit extracts showed antibacterial activity with a zone of inhibition of 4 to 20 mm. The methanolic fruit extract of Artocarpus lakoocha Roxb showed antibacterial activity with a zone of inhibition of 17 to 20 mm. The study recommended that the fruits of Artocarpus lakoocha Roxb. exhibited significant antimicrobial activity.
