Antimicrobial properties of protein extracts from wild mushroom fungi and native plant species against hospital pathogens

Protein extracts of either native or exotic rare mushroom fungi and plants that are normally known for novel therapeutics including immune modulation were investigated for their potential antimicrobial effects. Data obtained using the Kirby-Bauer’s disc-diffusion assay methods showed that a number of locally sourced wild mushroom fungi (e.g. Ganoderma resinaceum, Russula...

Bioautographic determination of the antistaphylococcal components of the stem bark of Parkia biglobosa (JACQ) BENTH (MIMOSACEAE)

Bioautography, a scientific method which combines chromatography with bioassay was used to attempt to determine the bioactive components in the methanolic extract of the stem bark of Parkia biglobosa.Results obtained confirmed 4 compounds of different Rf values. Each of them showed activity againstStaphylococcus confirming previous results reported and the method also showed the components were acting in...
