ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITY, ANTIPROLIFERATIVE ACTIVITY, NITRIC OXIDE SCAVENGING ACTIVITY AND PHYTOCHEMICAL ANALYSIS OF ETHANOL LEAF EXTRACTS OF ANACARDIUM OCCIDENTALE L.
Keywords:Anacardium occidentale L., anti-bacterial activity, anti-proliferative activity, Bio- active compounds
In this study, ethanolic extract of leaves of Ancardium occidentale L. were utilized against diabetic foot ulcer pathogens and dandruff causing fungi and anti-proliferative activity. The most effective anti-bacterical activity of ethanol extracts of Anacardium occidentale L. was 100 µg/mL, Minimum bactericidal concentration was 1mg/mL and antifungal activity was found against Aspergillus flavus. It showed 70% at 540nm (0.006 absorbance) of nitric oxide inhibition activity. GC-MS analysis showed several bio-active compounds with antimicrobial, anti-cancer, anti-oxidant, larvicidal activity, anti-cancer activity etc.
