ABSTRACT:
In present article we report in vitro antimicrobial activity of Celocia argentea leaves extract against human pathogenic bacteria. Antibacterial assay was performed by disc diffusion method for Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Proteus vulgaris and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. These bacteria were isolated and purified by streak plating method. The extracts of C. argentea leaves in carbon tetrachloride, chloroform, cyclohexane, ethanol, ethyl acetate and n-hexane were found to have varied levels of antibacterial activity against studied bacteria. Although, C. argentea has been known for its active phytochemicals including phenols, tannins and flavonoids as major constituents found scarce as antibacterial source.
