  author={Devi Nn and Prabakaran Jj},
Endophytes are important sources for the discovery of bioactive compounds. The potential role of the endophyte and its biologically active metabolites in its association with its host has been investigated. In the present study the antioxidant activity of the endophytic fungus Penicillium sp. isolated from medicinal plant Centella asiatica was evaluated by its ability to scavenge DPPH free radicals. Bioactive metabolites present in the ethyl acetate extract from the endophytic fungus…
