Abstract


Abstract

Seaweeds are used in pharmaceutical and biochemical applications as they possess interesting biological activities that contribute to the discovery of natural therapeutic agents. In the present work, we used four seaweeds (Sargassum wightii, Ulva fasciata, cauterpa racemosa     and Padina gymnospora), extracted in five solvents (chloroform, methanol, petroleum ether, acetone and butanol) and tested for their antimicrobialactivty against 7 human bacterial pathogens (Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus mutants, Bacillus subtilus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae, E.coli and Salmonella typhimurium and 6 fish bacterial  pathogens (Aeromonas sp , Pseudomonas sp, Flavobacterium sp, Yersinia sp, and  Vibrio cholera). All the extracts in all the seaweeds were highly effective against bacteria. All the extracted seaweeds contain tannin, phenol, saponins, alkaloids and flavanoids phytochemical compounds. In future, the research may help to preparation of bioactive nanopartical compounds.

Keywords: Marine algae, Human and fish bacterial pathogens, solvents, antibacterial activity
