Antimicrobial Potentials of Ayurvedic Products Extracts and Streptomycin Against Necrosis Causing Bacteria in Saguaro Cactus.Plant Sciences
- Alfred Santos
"Bacterial soft rot is the initial stage of the saguaro cactus' natural disintegration. Necrosis is the process of cellular death caused by a significant injury and followed by an invasion of microorganisms. The objective of the present study was to investigate the antimicrobial potential of ayurvedic products extracts; while we tested their inhibitory effects on the growth of likely pathogenic microorganisms found in the necrotic tissue of the saguaro cactus. The effects of oregano, garlic, clove, and cinnamon extracts- known to inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria- were compared to the antimicrobial potential of the antibiotic, streptomycin. "
