ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITIES OF ARTABOTRYS ODORATISSIMUS R.Br.
Artabotrys odoratissimus R.Br. (Annonaceae) a medium sizes shrub with hooks, sweet smelling flowers and aggregate fruits, was tested for activity against gram negative bacteria. The fruit of the experimental plant was extracted with water, methanol and toluene: methanol (2:1 v/v). Artabotrys fruits showed good antibacterial activity and produced zone of inhibition of 32mm. The methanolic extract of the fruit showed maximum zone of inhibition at 300 ?g/ml against Pseudomonas fluorescens. The present study clearly indicates that A. odoratissimus had a profound antimicrobial activity and it may be useful in the treatment of various infectious caused by bacteria.
