ABSTRACT

Mangroves have wide applications in folklore medicine since ages due to the presence of several bioactive compounds. There is a continuous and urgent need to discover new antimicrobials with diverse chemical structures and novel mechanism of action for new and reemerging infectious diseases. The present study was carried out to evaluate the antibacterial potential of the leaf extracts of mangrove plant Avicennia officinalis collected from two separate locations of the Maharashtra state. Extracts prepared using methanol as the solvent showed promising activity against the test organisms. Results also highlighted that the habitat has a role in the antibacterial activity exhibited by the plant.
