Title
Antibacterial and free radical scavenging activity of methanol extract of crystella denatata (Leaves)
Abstract
Antibiotic resistance is getting global treat and alsomany diseases are associated with oxidative stress caused by free radicals. The present study evaluated the in vitro antioxidant and antibacterial activities of methanol extract of Crystella denatata. In vitro antioxidant activities of the plant extract were determined by DPPH scavenging method as compared with standard antioxidants. Extract showed significant radical scavenging activity as IC50.25.27 μg/ml comparable IC508.687 μg/ml of standard ascorbic acid. Mild antibacterial activities were comparable with standard drug, Kanamycin. The present study provides evidence that Crystella denatataprove to be potent natural antioxidants and could replace synthetic antioxidants. Plants can also be used against pathogenic bacterial strains.
