ABSTRACT:
The present study was carried out to screen and evaluate antimicrobial activity of leaf extract of Jatropha curcas. Aqueous extract of leaves of Jatropha curcas was tested against Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus spp., Pseudomonas aeruginosa which are known to be resistant to various antibiotics. A Jatropha curcas material which was used during this study collected from Sangli district. In this study, we examined the in-vitro effect of extracts of Jatropha curcas on Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus spp., Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Aqueous extracts was prepared from fresh Jatropha curcas leaves. The susceptibility of tested bacteria to extract was determined by measuring the diameter of inhibition zones formed around well in plate. The results showed that the Jatropha curcas leaves possess antimicrobial activity.
