Abstract

Antimicrobial activity of extra-cellular antimicrobial secondary metabolites of endophytic Fusarium sp. isolated from the stem of Mirabilis jalapa L. was evaluated by an agar disc diffusion technique against selected groups of Gram-positive and Gram-negative human and phytopathogenic bacteria, yeasts and filamentous fungi. Aspergillus species were more found to be sensitive followed by Gram-positive bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis and Bacillus subtilis). Highest inhibitory activity was reported against Gram-positive bacteria, where as reduced, but similar effects, were shown against Aspergillus species and Gram-negative bacteria (E.coli, Salmonella typhi, Xanthomonas campestris, Xanthomonas axonopodis malvacearum, Xanthomonas campestris PVoryzae andXanthomonas campestris pv vesicatoria).
