Resumen

KOTHARI, Vijay  y  SESHADRI, Sriram. In vitro antibacterial activity in seed extracts of Manilkara zapota, Anona squamosa, and Tamarindus indica. Biol. Res. [online]. 2010, vol.43, n.2, pp.165-168. ISSN 0716-9760.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-97602010000200003.

Extracts prepared from seeds of Manilkara zapota, Anona squamosa, and Tamarindus indica were screened for their antibacterial activity by disc diffusion and broth dilution methods. Acetone and methanol extracts of T. indica seeds were found active against both gram-positive and gram-negative organisms. MIC values of potent extracts against susceptible organisms ranged from 53-380 μg/mL. Methanol extract of T. indica and acetone extract of M. zapota seeds were found to be bactericidal.

Palabras clave : Tamarindus indica; Manilkara zapota; in vitro activity; bactericidal activity.
