Abstract:

In the ethno-pharmacological approach, local knowledge about the potential uses of the plants is very useful as compared to the random approach where indigenous knowledge is not taken into consideration. Phytochemicals produced in plants are secondary compounds responsible for metabolic activities and defense in purpose. Phytochemicals are produced by specific biochemical pathways, which occur inside the plant cells. The gymnosperm, Cycas revoluta is a natural companion for palms, working well as under planting or in the foreground. In the present investigation, the chloroformic and hydro-alcoholic extracts of leaves and female cones of Cycas revoluta were screened for its antimicrobial potential and in urge for isolation and characterization of the potent molecule responsible for antimicrobial potential against pathogenic and drug resistant strains. The results showed that both the leaves and female cones of Cycas revoluta are potent antimicrobial agents. It was found that chloroformic extracts of the cones was having potent antimicrobial activity in comparison to the chloroformic extracts of leaves. The extracts were found to be promising antimicrobial agent against methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), E. coli, Salmonella abony, Aspergillus niger, Candida albicans and other pathogens reported in the study.
