  • Abstract

    Tephrosia is a pantropical genus, known for its varied flavonoids and possesses insecticidal, piscicidal and many therapeutic properties. In the present study the methanolic extracts of the roots of T. pumila and T. tinctoria were examined for their antimicrobial activities. The methanolic root extract of T. tinctoria exhibited better antimicrobial activity than T. pumila. Both the plant extracts have showed good antibacterial properties at different dose levels (100mg/ml- 500mg/ml). Interestingly both the plant extracts have showed considerable activity against tested fungal pathogens except for Candida albicans.
