Table 3 Antimicrobial activity zone of inhibition of extracts of root of Murraya koenigii.

Phytochemicals are known to be biologically active and they are formed to contain various biomolecules effective against many diseases and disorders. The chloroform extract is showing good inhibitory properties for A. Carbazoquinones from Murraya koenigii.

National Center for Biotechnology AnibacterialU. The phytochemical compounds were qualitatively analysed and the antimicrobial activity of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus showed maximum zone of inhibition in acetone extract, whereas Klebsiella pneumonia showed maximum zone of inhibition in aqueous extract.

Antibacterial, antifungal and anthelmintic activity of curry leaves Murraya koenigii (L.) spreng

The identity of each test organism was confirmed using standard cultural, morphological and biochemical techniques 4. In the present study, we report the antibacterial activities of the ethanol extract of M. Anthelminthic activity of Murraya koenigii was also detected in the different solvent extracts of murrata.


The flavonoids and sterols were found to present in ethyl acetate and ethanol extracts. In the present work, dried leaf powered of Murraya koenigii was subjected to phytochemical screening in aqueous extract and antimicrobial activity using four different organic solvents like aqueous, acetone, isopropanol and methanol against three pathogenic bacteria such as Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus by disc diffusion method.

The study shows that all the extracts possess remarkable antibacterial activity.

Journal List Braz J Microbiol v. Antioxidative activity of carbazoles from Murraya koenigii. The antibacterial activity is possibly due to antioxidant protein of curry leaf. The leaves of the plant are used as a flavoring agent. Antimicrobial activity of Polygonum tinctorium Lour.

An overview of Staphylococcus epidermidis and Staphylococcus aureus with a focus on developing countries. The Petroleum ether is inhibitory against A. Murraya koenigiifamily Rutaceae, commonly known as Curry leaf plant is a highly valued plant for its medicinal ,oenigii and characteristic aroma. The contents were thoroughly mixed and allowed to solidify.

Topics Discussed in This Paper. Acivity from Murraya koenigii. Medicinally, these leaves found use in diarrhea, dysentery and to prevent vomiting. Biologically active carbazole alkaloids from Murraya koenigii. Antibacterial activity of different solvent extracts of leaves and water extract of stem branch and leaves of Murraya koenigii were found effective against bacterial species strains such as Bacillus licheniformis, Bacillus aureus, Eschericia coli.


These results shows that the root extract chloroform, Petroleum ether can be used to formulate antimicrobial compositions.

Ciprofloxacin and Fluconazole were a generous gift from Ranbaxy Laboratories Ltd. Leaves, root and bark are tonic, stomachic and carminative. A brief review Arunava Kali Pharmacognosy reviews Evaluation of antimicrobial activity All the experimentation was done in aseptic area under laminar air-flow cabinet.

Antibacterial, antifungal and anthelmintic activity of curry leaves Murraya koenigii (L.) spreng

The extractive values for petroleum ether, chloroform, ethyl acetate and ethanol extracts was found to be moenigii. The MIC values of the extract against tested microorganisms are shown in Table 2. Antibacterial, antifungal and anthelmintic activity of curry leaves Murraya koenigii L. The results of the tests for MIC study revealed that the MIC for Bacillus subtilis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Escherichia coli were found to be less than that Staphylococcus aureus and Micrococcus luteus.
