Antifungal activity of extracts obtained from actinomycetes


Harpreet Sharma and Leena Parihar*

In the present investigation an attempt has been done on isolation of actinomycetes from the soil, extracting the antifungal compounds from these isolated actinomycetes and then testing the extract against the growth of Alternaria sps, Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus, Fusarium sps, and Rhizopus stolonifer. During the investigation it was found that nearly all the extracts were effective against the test fungi and the mycelial growth of fungi is inversely proportional to the concentration of extract.
