The aim of this study was to identify the endophytic fungi from medicinal plant Ricinus communis and to investigate their potential antibacterial activity. 10 fungal species of endophytic fungi were successfully isolated from Ricinus communis including Aspergillus fumigates, Aspergillus japonicas, Aspergillus niger, Fusarium semitectum, Curvularia pallescens, Phoma hedericola, Alternaria tenuissima, Fusarium solani, Drechslera australien and Aspergillus repens. The fungal extracts were assessed…

Isolation and Identification of Endophytic Fungi in Trigonella foenum-graceum L. and their Antibacterial Activity
TLDR
This study shows that fenugreek harbors a good number of endophytic fungi whose crude extracts can be used for further studies in controlling the plant pathogenic bacteria P. aeruginosa in vivo.
Anti - bacterial potential of endophytic fungi isolated from Saraca indica
TLDR
The aim of the present study was to isolate the endop hytic fungi from Saraca indica and observe their antibacterial activity against six pathogenic bacteria and found that fungal metabolites give better ac tivity against these bacteria in - vitro.
