Objective: To reveal the antibacterial, cytotoxic and larvicidal activity of Dictyota bartayresiana Lamour (D. bartayresiana). Methods: Phytochemical analysis of various extracts of D. bartayresiana was performed. The antibacterial activity of D. bartayresiana was evaluated by agar diffusion method. The larvicidal activity of crude extract was evaluated as per the protocol described by World Health Organization. The evaluation of LC50 value was carried out after 24 h by probit analysis… Expand
