ABSTRACT:
AIMS: The aim of present study is to investigate the antimicrobial activity of root extracts of Withania somnifera, in order to use it as a possible source for new antimicrobial substances against important human and plant pathogens. SETTINGS AND DESIGN: The roots of Withania somnifera were evaluated against medically important bacteria viz. Proteus merabilis, Klebsiella pnemoniae, Agerobacterium tumefaciens (plant pathogen) and one fungi Aspergillus niger. METHODS AND MATERIAL: The dried and powdered roots of W. somnifera were successively extracted with a series of non polar to polar solvents using soxhlet assembly. The antimicrobial assay was done by both disc diffusion and serial dilution methods. RESULTS: Glacial acetic acid extract and benzene extract of W. somnifera show highest activity against A. tumefaciens (plant pathogen) to varying degrees, by most of the extracts.
