The Catharanthus roseus L. plant leaf extracts were prepared by using solvents such as acetone, ethanol, and chloroform and tested against pathogenic microorganisms to determine their antimicrobial potential. Catharanthus roseus leaf extracts showed maximum antibacterial activity against all the pathogenic microorganisms. Among the solvents tested, ethanol showed maximum antibacterial activity of plant extracts viz., Catharanthus roseus leaf when compared to acetone and chloroform extracts viz… 
In vitro antibacterial activity of Catharanthus roseus
This study investigated the antimicrobial activity of ethanol and hot water extracts of Catharanthus roseus (Vinca rosae L.) In vitro antimicrobial activity of extracts was studied on E.coli, Pr.
Cytotoxicity and antimicrobial activity of alkaloids extracted from Catharanthus roseus associated endophytic fungi
TLDR
Alkaloids extracted from Catharanthus roseus associated endophytic fungi had cytotoxic and antimicrobial activities.
Antibacterial, antifungal and cytotoxic activities of some medicinal plants against multidrug resistance pathogens
TLDR
The methanol extract of the four medicinal plants with minimum inhibitory concentration values from 2.57 to 47.85 mg/ml showed a significant antibacterial and antifungal activity against bacteria and fungi.
In Vitro Biotechnological Production and Pharmacological Studies of Antileukemic Alkaloids of Catharanthus roseus
TLDR
The chapter encompasses the types of explant cultures used, induction rates, and the culture environment, jointly with hormones and concentration employed, as well as new metabolites obtained from suspension cell cultures of Catharanthus roseus, along with major pharmacological studies recently conducted.
Transcriptional analyses of the effects of Catharanthus roseus L. medicinal plant extracts on some markers related to obesity and inflammation in 3T3-L1 mouse cell lines
TLDR
3T3-L1 preadipocyte cell lines which are fully differentiated into adipocytes were utilized and these were treated with extracts derived from above ground part of C. roseus to examine the effect of these extracts on obesity and inflammation markers in cells.
