Abstract Discovery and development of new antibiotics is still very important because of the constant appearance of drug-resistant pathogenic bacteria. The broth microdilution test was applied for screening of antibacterial activity in extracts of higher and endophytic fungi. Among tested extracts, three possessed significant antibacterial activity: extracts of mushrooms Amanita virosa. (Fr.) Bertill. (Amanitaceae) and Cortinarius praestans. Cordier (Cortinariaceae) against Pseudomonas… Expand
Evaluation of synergistic and antibacterial activity of Xylaria curta against drug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa
TLDR
Xylaria curta is a potential source for the development of new antibiotics and exhibited an effective antimicrobial activity against bacterial and fungal strains against drug-resistant strains. Expand
Antibacterial effect of an extract of the endophytic fungus Alternaria alternata and its cytotoxic activity on MCF-7 and MDA MB-231 tumour cell lines
TLDR
Results clearly indicate that the metabolites of A. alternata VN3 are a potential source for production of new drugs, as they exhibited moderate anticancer activity against MCF-7 and MDA MB-231 cell lines. Expand
Identification and Isolation of fungus from food and determination of its antibacterial activity
TLDR
Just Aspergillus fumigatus have pharmacological activity and it give zone of restraint against human pathogenic microbes, and other fungi did not give any zone of inhibition against Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes and Pseudomonas aeroginosa. Expand
ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITY OF WHOLE FRUITING BODIES OF TRAMETES HIRSUTA (WULF. FR.) PIL. AGAINST SOME COMMON PATHOGENIC BACTERIA AND FUNGUS

Antibacterial activity of endophytic fungi isolated from conifer needles
TLDR
To screen the extracts of conifer needle fungal endophytes for antimicrobial activity and taxonomically place fungi producing ones to determined active metabolites demonstrates an interesting bottom-up approach to the discovery of new antimicrobial compounds. Expand
Bioactive Compounds from a Polypore Fungus Ganoderma applanatum (Per s. ex Wallr.) Pat.
TLDR
Bioactive chemical compounds G1 and G2 were isolated, purified and identified from fruit bodies of the wood-rot polypore fungus Ganoderma applanatum collected from Tamarix aphylla trees in southern Iraq and exhibited good bioactivities against the tested bacteria but did not show any activity against the selected dermatophytes.

Evaluation of antibacterial activity of Australian basidiomycetous macrofungi using a high-throughput 96-well plate assay
TLDR
The antimicrobial potential of a sample of Australian macrofungi that can serve as potential candidates for the development of new antibiotics are established. Expand
Antimicrobial Bioactive Compound Isolated from the Fungus Myrothecium verrucaria
TLDR
Purified M1 compound exhibited a good bioactivity against the tested bacteria as well as against the dermatophyte isolate, and the antimicrobial bioactivity of the purified compound against the bacterial strains E. coli and S. aureus. Expand
