Antimicrobial potential of few marine derived fungi against dermatophytes, moulds and fouling bacteria

Author : Bhosale S.H, Chaudhari B. P. and Abhay Raj

Marine derived fungi were screened for antimicrobial activity against dermatophytes, food spoilage Aspergillus species and fouling marine bacteria. The Aspergillus and Fusarium species showed moderate to strong activity against one or one more strains dermatophytes, moulds and fouling bacteria. However, Populospora sp. and Cirrenalia sp. exhibited moderate to significant activity against fouling bacteria. The present finding identifies few marine derived fungi for an antimicrobial potential against dermatophytes, food spoilage Aspergillus species and fouling marine bacteria.
