The present study investigated the antibacterial and antifungal activities in vitro of gossypitrin, a flavonoid glucoside isolated and characterized from the ethanolic extracts of Talipariti elatum Sw. (Fryxell). The inhibition activity against bacteria was 53.85%, while inhibition activity against fungal was 15.38%. The antibacterial activity of gossypitrin against Staphylococcus epidermidis, Proteus vulgaris and Klebsiella pneumoniae, showed varying degrees of inhibition on the tested organisms. Only two of 13 fungal strains were inhibited, Candida albicans and Candida subtilis.

Keywords: Talipariti elatum, gossypitrin, antimicrobial, antibacterial, antifungal
