Abstract:   (4715 Views)
In this study, the extract of Entromorpha intestinalis was exctracted using different solvents including water, chloroform, methanol, ethanol, hexane and acetone. Antibacterial and antifungal properties of these extracts were evaluated using a modified disk diffusion method. Microorganisms investigated in this research were included Gram-positive bacteria Lactococcus  lactis, Listeria monocytogenes, Bacillus subtilis, Gram-negative bacteria Escherichia coli and fungi Candida albicans. According to the results, the methanol and hexane extracts of this alga had the best activity against L. lactic. (p<0/05). Methanol and ethanol extracts had the best activity against L. monocytogenes (p<0/05). But for the others tested microorganisms  in this study, the extract of aceton exhibited the best inhibition zone (p<0/05). The extract of E. intestinalis possesses good antibacterial and antifungal activity against the investigated microorganisms and it could also used as a suitable natural antimicrobial compound.
