Abstract:

The aim of this study was to screen biogenic platinum nanoparticles for antifungal properties by a combination of in vitro methods. During this study, marine actinobacteria (Streptomyces sp. mediated biogenic platinum nanoparticles were screened for their antifungal activity against Aspergillus flavus, A. niger, Penicillium sp., Candida albicans and C. tropicalis. Biologically synthesized platinum nanoparticles exhibited broad spectrum antifungal activity against test organisms. Particles exhibited high activity against yeast viz, Candida albicans (16.66±1.52) and C. tropicalis (18.33±1.52), while moderate antifungal activity against molde viz, A. flavus (11.00±1.00), A. niger (09.33±1.52), Penicillium sp. (06.00±1.00). These particles exhibited antifungal activity with minimum inhibitory concentration ranging from 10-40μg/ml.
