Phytochemical investigations and antibacterial activity of Curcuma pseudomontana J. Grahm (Zingiberaceae)
Jadhao Anand Shriram and Bhuktar Anil Shripatrao
The extracts of rhizome, root and leaf of Curcuma pseudomontana J. Grahm was tested against human pathogenic bacteria viz. Escherichia coli, Salmonella typhi, Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Shigella flexneri by 96 well-plate methods. Extract was screened for the detection of different phytochemical constituents. The rhizome, root and leaf extracts showed significant antibacterial activity at different concentrations against tested organism. The MIC (minimum inhibition concentration) of rhizome and roots are different for bacteria whereas leaf showed MIC at 2µl concentration for all tested bacteria. Phytochemical screening of extracts indicates presence of amino acid, alkaloid, glycoside, steroid, flavonoid, tannin, saponin, phenol, terpenoids and phytosterol. Screening of C. pseudomontana extracts for antibacterial activity and for the detection tests of various secondary metabolites forms primary platform for further pharmacological and phytochemical studies.
