Abstract:

The aim of this study was to evaluate antifungal property of the Prosopis juliflora leaf extract as a potential natural source for synthesis of new drugs to avoid gaining of antifungal resistance. The Prosopis juliflora leaf extracts obtained by supercritical fluid extraction were assessed for their antifungal property against Rhizoctonia bataticola, Alternaria alternata and Colletotrichum gloeosporioides by food poisoned technique. Prosopis juliflora leaf extract obtained by SC-CO2 (at 50 °C and 200 bar) showed strong antifungal activities against the fungal pathogens viz., Rhizoctonia bataticola, Alternaria alternata and Colletotrichum gloeosporioides with 94.07 per cent, 93.15 per cent and 92.43 per cent of inhibition, respectively which indicates that supercritical fluid extract shows best results having per cent of inhibition greater than that of the soxhlet extraction process (55.31, 75.63 and 45.13 per cent of inhibition, respectively). The results of investigation showed that all the extracts had inhibitory effect on the growth of all the isolates. It can be concluded that the Prosopis juliflora could be a potential source for antifungal agents, probably a novel inhibitory metabolite and is potential natural fungicide.
