ABSTRACT:
Endophytic bacteria flora were isolated from roots ,stems and leaves of selected five medicinal plants .A total of about twenty three different endophytic bacteria were obtained ,majority of isolates were Gram positive in character and each of them was positive for at least one enzyme activity except HBRC4 and HBRC5 from rhizomes of Curcuma longa. About twelve isolates were positive for antifungal activity, three for antibacterial and six for antioxidation activity. Endophytic bacteria NBEL6 from roots of Eucalyptus globules was strong entrant as per catalase, antibacterial and antifungal activities were concerned. Majority of dynamic endophytic bacterial flora were from roots samples of medicinal plants.
KEYWORDS:
Medicinal plants, Endophytic bacteria, Enzyme activity, Antimicrobial activity.
