Abstract

  Medicinal plants have known to be the potential source for the treatment of many ailments. The present study is designed to investigate the in vitro activity of silver nanoparticle synthesized from the leaves of Murraya koenigii and fruit peel of Punica granatum against Mycobacterium tuberculosis H73Rv strain using Micro plate Alamar Blue Assay (MABA). The results revealed that the silver nanoparticle showed sensitivity against M. tuberculosis strain at a concentration 1.6 µg/ml. The present investigation suggests that silver nanoparticles synthesized from the leaves of Murraya koenigii and fruit peel of Punica granatum possess remarkable anti-tubercular activity.
