Evaluating antimicrobial plant-derived compounds
Abstract:Observing the inhibition of bacterial communication in V. fischeri, seen as decreased luminescence, provides a new method to screen for effective antimicrobial plant-derived compounds. Various compounds in Holy Basil were isolated using HPLC, and screened for their effectiveness. The same was done for its essential oils, but without contact. Interestingly, the volatile compounds are more effective antimicrobials than the compounds which were isolated.
