ABSTRACT

   The antibacterial effect of the leaves of Annona muricata was evaluated on bacterial strains like Staphylococcus aureus , Escherichia coli , Proteus vulgaris , Streptococcus pyogenes , Bacillus subtilis
ATCC12432, Salmonella typhimurium ATCC, Klebsiella pneumonia No.and Enterobacter aerogenes No.2340.The solvents used for the extraction of plants were water and methanol. The    in vitro antibacterial activity was performed by agar cup method. The most susceptible Gram-positive bacteria was B. subtalis and S.aureus while the most susceptible Gram-negative bacteria was K. pneumoniae and P. vulgaris. The significant antibacterial activity of active extracts was compared with the standard antibiotic, streptomycin (100 ppm).The results obtained in the present study suggest that Annona muricata can be used in treating diseases caused by the test organisms.




        

Key words:
Medicinal plants, antibacterial activity, aqueous extract, methanol extract.
