Citrus limon (Lemon) belongs to Family Rutaceae, is commonly known as Kagdi Limbu or Lime. The current examination was to decide the total alkaloid content in Citrus limon plant and its endophytes isolated of leaf, steam, root, seed and peel. The total alkaloid content (TAC) was assessed spectrophotometrically utilizing Bromocresol green strategy and HPLC with caffeine as standard. rich wellspring of alkaloids. Among the different parts examinations leaf extracts showed higher alkaloids. The total alkaloid content of different Endophytes isolated from whole Citrus limon plant with respect to extract of Citrus limon plant was well established by spectrophotometric and HPLC studies. The near assessment of all out alkaloid in the Endophytes was accomplished interestingly which can be utilized for additional synthetic and natural examinations and unrefined medication material in planning of home grown definition.
