Antimicrobials Potential Activity from Selective Plant Parts of Fagonia cretica and Desmostachya bipinnata
The aim of the present study is to determine antimicrobial potential activity of Fagonia cretica and Desmostachya bipinnata plant parts to look into possible natural therapy agents. Fagonia cretica (Linn.) is most valuable therapeutic medicinal plant, commonly known as Dhamasa and belong to Zygophyllaceae family and Desmostachya bipinnata is also valuable medicinal plant, commonly known as Kusha or Dabh and belong to Poaceae family. Fagonia cretica and Desmostachya bipinnata have a good medicinal property and used as: urinary disorder, abdominal pain, chronic fever, cancer, dysentery and menorrhagia, and as a diuretic and a blood purifier. Selective plant parts were also used as medicine contents in pharmaceuticals. Antibacterial and antifungal activity has to be done from various selective medicinal plant parts. Potential activity as antimicrobials against bacteria and fungi Bacillus subtilis is maximum in methanol extract and minimum against Staphylococcus aureus in chloroform extract. Fagonia cretica most valuable medicinal plant, used as anti breast cancer drug.
