Antibacterial activity of the leaf extracts of Tinospora cordifolia



Geobios 34(4): 233-236



Tinospora cordifolia is widely used as an Ayurvedic medicinal plant. The in vitro experiment by the agar disc diffusion method established that the extract possesses antibacterial property. The leaf extracts in different ratios of hexane and ethyl acetate tests have shown significant zone of inhibition for bacteria: Escherichia coli (64 mm), Bacillus subtilis (56 mm) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (61 mm) which was greater than reference antibiotics.
