The present paper reports the phytochemical analysis, antibacterial and antioxidant activity of a threatened plant Tylophora indica (Burm. F.) Merill is a threatened medicinal plant (climber) which belongs to the family Asclepiadaceae. is a slow growing perennial medicinal woody climber it is commonly used to treat Asthma and there is a growing demand for leaves of T. indica in the pharmaceutical trade due to its use as a remedy for diabetes and also as a tonic of the nerves and as a laxative other ailments. Phytochemical studies were taken up and the presence of alkaloids, flavonoids, phenols, saponins, steroids, tannins and terpenoids was confirmed by qualitative analysis and antibacterial activity of extracts of different T. indica explants were performed against gram positive and gram negative bacteria by the disk diffusion method. The activities of the compounds were compared with standard strain for antibacterial properties of the imine base and its solvent extract evaluated and presenting in indicate that the compounds are active in exhibiting antibacterial role also carried out. T. indica exhibited potent antioxidant activity by inhibiting DPPH free radicals which indicates the roots and leaves extract is very much source of natural antioxidant agent.
