Antifungal activity of hyoscyamine (Hcy) and scopolamine (Sco) were determined by TLC-bioautography against fungi associated with H. muticus grown in Egypt, and those isolated from other plants grown in Japan. All 40 fungal strains were tolerant to Sco and sensitive to Hcy, exhibiting a growth inhibition zone around the Hcy spot on the bioautography plate.(More)
Thirty-seven actinomycete species isolated from fertile cultivated soils in Egypt were screened for the production of antimicrobial compounds against a variety of test organisms. Most of the isolates exhibited antimicrobial activities against Gram-positive, Gram-negative, and acid-fast bacteria, yeasts and filamentous fungi, with special attention to fungal(More)
