Abstract The emergence and increase of microbial resistance towards many conventional therapeutics necessitate the investigation and discovery of new natural sources of antimicrobial agents. In this study the Mediterranean brown alga, Dictyopteris membranacea, was investigated. The total phenolic, flavonoid and tannin contents were quantified and antibacterial, antifungal and antitubercular activities of the crude extract and semi-purified ethanol, acetone and methanol/CH2Cl2 fractions were… Expand
