Should Solubility and Zone of Inhibition Be the Only Criteria for Selection of Solvent in Antimicrobial Assay

  title={Should Solubility and Zone of Inhibition Be the Only Criteria for Selection of Solvent in Antimicrobial Assay},
  author={Ankita Sharma and Kanika Sharma},
Effect of different solvents; dimethyl-sulfoxide (DMSO), dimethyl formamide (DMF), methanol, tween 80 and acetone on morphology, cytology and reproduction of Aspergillus flavus, A. parasiticus, A. fumigatus and A. niger was assayed for standardization of a suitable organic solvent for test/antimicrobial compound in antimicrobial assays. Comparison of antimicrobial sensitivity methods was also made. Inhibition of pigmentation, conidia germination and dichotomous branching in conidiophores was… 

Figures from this paper


In vivo and in vitro studies, treatment with DMSO on biodeteriorated sycamore wood resulted in inhibition of fungal growth and in vivo studies, the application of D MSO had no effect on the colour, structure and chemical characteristic of the wood as well as, DmsO removed extraneous wood components that easily dissolve inDMSO.

Production of antimicrobials and antioxidants from filamentous fungi

Submerged fermentation of mycelium from ten species of filamentous fungi proved to be an effective cultivation method for the production of bioactive and nutritional functional compounds and provided information which could benefit further research in the isolation and characterisation of active chemical components of natural origin.

The Solvent Dimethyl Sulfoxide Affects Physiology, Transcriptome and Secondary Metabolism of Aspergillus flavus

It is shown that DMSO impacted widely A. flavus’ transcriptome, including secondary metabolism gene clusters with the aflatoxins at the head of down-regulated ones, which should not be used as solvent especially in studies testing anti-aflatoxinogenic compounds.
