Trachyspermum ammi: Antimicrobial activity and biochemical analysis against pathogens causing gastrointestinal disturbances
Keywords:Antimicrobial activity, Biochemical analysis, Levofloxacin, Pathogens, Trachyspermum ammi
The present study is based on determining pharmacological uses through the antimicrobial activities of aqueous and ethanolic extracts of Trachyspermum ammi on selected gastric microbes. The microorganisms used in the study cause gastrointestinal disturbances such as Vibro parahaemolyticus, Campylobacter jejuni, and Escherichia coli. Antimicrobial activity of medicinal plant against selected microbes determined by disc diffusion method. E. coli was the most susceptible microorganism, while C. jejuni was found to be the least susceptible. The highest antimicrobial activity was observed for E. coli (9.6 mm) with both extracts of T. ammi, while the lowest activity was observed for C. jejuni (1.2 mm). Biochemical analysis reveals the presence of carbohydrates, flavonoids, alkaloids, resins, coumarins, phenolic compounds, tannins, etc., in both extracts of T. ammi.
