Antibacterial activity of endophytic fungi from leaves of Indigofera suffruticosa Miller (Fabaceae)
This study is the first report about the antimicrobial activity of endophytic fungi residing in I. suffruticosa leaves, in which the fungus N. sphaerica demonstrated the ability to produce bioactive agents with pharmaceutical potential, and may provide a new lead in the pursuit of new biological sources of drug candidates.
Antimicrobial Activity and Phytochemical Analysis of Organic Extracts from Cleome spinosa Jaqc.
All C. spinosa extracts showed a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity, as they have inhibited all tested bacteria and yeasts, and the identification of active substances which could be used as lead(s) molecules in the development of new antimicrobial drugs is encouraged.
Anti-Staphylococcus aureus action of three Caatinga fruits evaluated by electron microscopy
This study showed for the first time the morphologic alterations involved in the anti-S.
Antimicrobial Activity and Phytochemical Screening of Buchenavia tetraphylla (Aubl.) R. A. Howard (Combretaceae: Combretoideae)
This work showed for the first time the broad-spread antimicrobial activity of B. tetraphylla, which has nonhemolytic action, creating a new perspective on the interesting association of traditional and scientific knowledge.
Comparative study of the antimicrobial activity of native and exotic plants from the Caatinga and Atlantic Forest selected through an ethnobotanical survey
Context: The idea that many commonly used medicinal plants may lead to the discovery of new drugs has encouraged the study of local knowledge of these resources. Objective: An ethnobotanical survey
Novel Nitrofurazone Derivatives Endowed with Antimicrobial Activity
The N‐alkylated derivatives from nitrofurazone were synthesised and evaluated in vitro for their efficacy as antimicrobial agents against representative strains, including methicillin‐resistant
