Phytochemical Analysis, Antibacterial Activity of Marrubium Vulgare L against Antibiotic Resistance Escherichia Coli

Article excerpt

Background: The present study was carried out to deter- mine the potential antibacterial effect of essential oil of Mar- rubium vulgare L. against E.coli, which is antibiotic resistant

Methods: All 12 strains of E. coli isolated from hospital inpa- tients in Zabol city were screened during the years 2011- 2012. In this study, the essential oil of Marrubium vulgare L. obtained by hydrodistillation was analyzed by gas chromatog- raphy coupled to mass spectrometry (GC-MS) in order to determine their chemical composition. The minimum inhibi- tory concentrations were investigated to characterize the an- timicrobial activities of this essential oil. The result show that thirty-one components were identified in the oil of Marrubium vulgare.

Results: The results demonstrated that the major compo- nents of the essential oil were Eudesmol (11%), Germacrene (10%), D-Citronelly formate (10%), Citronellol (8%), Geranyl tiglate (7. …
