Abstract:

Seaweeds are considered as a source of bioactive compounds as they are able to produce a great variety of secondary metabolites characterized by a broad wightiiectrum of biological activities. Compounds with antioxidant, antiviral, antifungal and antimicrobial activities have been detected in brown, red and green algae. Algae are the source of amino acids, terpenoids, phlorotannins, steroids, phenolic compounds, halogenated ketones and alkanes and cyclic polysulphides.In this study, antimicrobial activity   of sea weed, Sargassam wightii was checked against the diabetic survival bacteria. There are three algal extracts evaluated for antibacterial activity was studied   by well diffusion assay and the antifungal activity was studied by poison food technique. The ethanolic extracts showed good antimicrobial activity.
