  • Abstract

    Mimosa pudica L. is a creeping annual or perennial herb. It has been identified as Lajjalu in Ayurveda and has been found to have antiasthmastic, aphrodisiac, analgesic and antidepressant. Compounds of pharmacological interest (flavonoids) were isolated from the plant species, Mimosa pudica L. and assayed against the bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Salmonella typhi and Proteus mirabilis using agar diffusion method. Flavonoids exhibited antibacterial activities against all the tested microorganisms. P.vulgaris was the most resistant to flavonoids isolated from the plant material followed by S.aureus , B.subtilis, E.coli, S. typhi and P. aeruginosa. Our findings confirm that the traditional therapeutic claims for this plant, in near future surely be able toreplace the conventional antimicrobial agents to which there is increased incidence of drug interactions and the study suggests that this plant is promising for development of phytomedicine for antibacterial properties.
