Background: In the past few years, the rates of morbidity and mortality are increasing due to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection so, studies in controlling this infection is gravely required. Silver nanoparticles antimicrobial activity were well known but rapid and green synthesis of silver nanoparticles having stupendous antimicrobial activity against MSRA is needed. Aim: Synthesis and evaluation of antibacterial activity of silver nanoparticles against MRSA. Methods: Thepigment produced by Streptomyces coelicolorwasused to reduceAgNO3 in solution to yield silver nanoparticles using photo-irradiation. The synthesized silver nanoparticles were characterized by UVevisible spectroscopy; X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). The synthesized silver nanoparticles were tested for antibacterial activity against MRSA, and the synergetic effects, of the combination of silver nanoparticles and antibiotics were evaluated. Results: We developed rapid synthesis for silver nanoparticles using S. coelicolor pigment by photo-irradiation within 20 min. The UVevisible spectroscopy result show maximum absorption between 400 and 450 nm a preliminary confirmation for nanoparticles synthesis. The XRD result confirms the crystalline nature of silver nanoparticles. The TEM image shows the particles are irregular having the size in a range of 28e50 nm. The FTIR result indicates the pigment as the probable reducing agent. The silver nanoparticles alone and in combination with antibiotics, exhibited antibacterial activity against MRSA. Conclusions: The rapid synthesis method developed in this study for the synthesis of silver nanoparticles has distinct advantages over traditional synthesis as the process is less time consuming. The kinetics of silver nanoparticles synthesis using S. coelicolor pigment with photo-irradiation indicates an appropriate way to develop green technology for the bulk synthesis. Furthermore, these biosynthesized silver nanoparticles, alone and in combination with antibiotics, exhibited excellent antimicrobial activity against a MRSA which could be an alternate drug of choice.

Title: Phytochemical screening and in vitro antimicrobial activity of Typha angustifolia Linn leaves extract against pathogenic gram negative micro organisms

Background: Typha is a monocot genus of the monotypic family Typhaceae with about 12 species distributed in the tropical and temperate regions of the world in marshes and wetlands of varied depth. It a common plant of wetlands, is an unexploited taxon which can be used as a good source of food, medicines, and, fibres. Methods: In the present study phytochemical evaluation and antimicrobial potency of  Typha angustifolia has been investigated against 4 g negative standard reference bacterial strains i.e., Enterobacter aerogenes (MTCC111), Salmonella typhimurium (MTCC98), Klebsiella pneumonia (MTCC 109), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (MTCC 424) and Escherichia coli (clinical isolates). The antibacterial activity was determined by agar well diffusion method and broth dilution methods were used to determine the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of the above strains. Results: It is estimated that total ash value in leaves is 10.83%, acid insoluble ash and water soluble ash shows the value 4.66% and 3.16% respectively. Preliminary phytochemical screening of the aerial part of the T. angustifolia reveals the presence of different secondary metabolites in these extracts. The diameter of the zones of inhibition of the extracts ranged from 13 to 17 mm for E. aerogenes, 0e19 for S. typhimurium, 12e16 for K. pneumoniae, 9-19 for P. aeruginosa and 9e20 mm for E coli. The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of the different extracts ranged from 0.78 mg/ml to 12.5 mg/ml. Conclusion: The results obtained with methanol extract was particularly significant as it strongly inhibited the growth of S. typhimurium, P. aeruginosa and E. coli. The overall results of this study provided informative data for the use of T. angustifolia for the treatment of infections associated with the studied micro organisms.
