Methanolic and ethyl acetate extracts from eight different seaweeds collected from the red sea Hurghada, Egypt (June, 2009) were screened for their antibacterial activities against both gram positive bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus NCIMB 50080 and Bacillus cereus) and gram negative bacteria (Escherichia coli NCIMB 50034, Enterococcus feacalis NCIMB 50030, Salmonella sp. and Pseudomonase aeruginosa). [] Key Method The antibacterial activities were expressed as zone of inhibition and minimum inhibitory…

Antibacterial Activity of the Extracts of Marine Red and Brown Algae

It is observed that the extract residues of algae recorded maximum activity against staphylococcus aureus with an inhibition zone compared to other bacterias, and chloroform : methonal is the best solution for extracting the effective antibacterial materials from the brown algae species.

Screening of antibacterial activity in marine green and brown macroalgae from the coast of Morocco

The results indicate that these species of seaweed collected from the Atlantic and Mediterranean coast of Morocco present a significant capacity of antibacterial activities, which makes them interesting for screening for natural products.

On the GRAS status of seaweeds. I. Observations on the association between antibacterial activity of ethanolic extracts and meta1 levels present in selected seaweeds.

The antimicrobial activity of extracts from the seaweeds tested should also be generally recognised as safe (GRAS) because of the weak relationship between antibacterial activity and levels of metals occurring in their tissues.
