Abstract

PRELIMINARY PHYTOCHEMICAL AND ANTIMICROBIAL SCREENING OF LEAF AND STEM EXTRACTS OF MEIZOTROPIS PELLITA (PATWA): AN ENDANGERED PLANT OF KUMAUN HIMALAYAN REGION

*Renu Chandola and Dr. Anshulika Upadhyaya

ABSTRACT

Meizotropis pellita (Family Fabaceae) is commonly known as Patwa, an endangered plant species from Kumaun Himalaya was screened for phytochemical constituents and antimicrobial Potential using leaf and stem samples of plant. Different tests were performed in methanolic extract of leaf to find the chemical constituents that are present in order to use the plant for medicinal purposes. Dried samples were used to obtain various extracts viz. methanol, ethanol, acetone and chloroform were tested using Disc Diffusion Method against different Bacterial strains: E. coli (gram –ve), Bacillus subtilis (gram +ve), Pseudomonas (gram –ve) and fungal strains: Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus awamori, C. oryzae, Rhizopus oryzae and Trichoderma viride. It was found out that it contain valuable bioactive constituents for further Pharmaceutical Research and this finding will help in the increase economic value of this plant and also used as a herbal medicine.
