The aim of the present study was to isolate antibacterial compound from Streptomyces sp. VITMK1 isolated from mangrove soil of Pichavaram, Tamil Nadu, India. A total of 31 actinomycetes isolates were isolated from soil samples collected at the mangrove region. Actinomycetes isolates were screened for antibacterial activity by well diffusion method. The(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the leishmanicidal activity of saponin, dasyscyphin C of Eclipta prostrata and sapogenin, gymnemagenol from Gymnema sylvestre leaves under in vitro conditions. MATERIALS AND METHODS Dasyscyphin C/Gymnemagenol were dissolved in phosphate buffered saline (PBS) and diluted with liquid medium to obtain concentrations ranging from 1000 to(More)
The incidence of bacterial disease has increased tremendously in the last decade, because of the emergence of drug resistance strains within the bacterial pathogens. The present study was to investigate the antibacterial compound 2,5-di-tert-butyl-1,4-benzoquinone (DTBBQ) isolated from marine Streptomyces sp. VITVSK1 as a potent antibacterial agent. The(More)
Actinomycetes were isolated from marine sediment samples collected from the east coast of Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. Well diffusion and agar plug methods were used for the evaluation of antibiotic production by these isolates against drug resistant Methicillin- resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin resistant Enterococci (VRE). The potential(More)
Ticks and mosquitoes are ectoparasitic arthropods that can transmit a variety of diseases to humans and animals during blood feeding and causing serious infectious disorders. The purpose of the present study was to assess the acaricidal and insecticidal property of ethyl acetate extract and its compounds isolated from marine actinobacteria, Streptomyces(More)
The aim of the present study was to assess the acaricidal and larvicidal property of marine actinobacterial compound (2S,5R,6R)-2-hydroxy-3,5,6-trimethyloctan-4-one extracted and isolated from Streptomyces sp. VITDDK3 tested against the larvae of Rhipicephalus (Boophilus) microplus Canestrini (Acari: Ixodidae), Anopheles subpictus Grassi and Culex(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the antidiabetic activity of an aqueous extract of the roots of Hemidesmus indicus on blood glucose, serum electrolytes, serum marker enzymes, liver microsomal P-450 enzymes, and lipid peroxidation in the liver and kidney of streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats. MATERIALS AND METHODS Effect of H. indicus extract on blood glucose was(More)
