Table 4 In vitro antibacterial and antifungal activity of partial purified biosurfactants from Halomonas sp BS4

From: Halomonas sp. BS4, A biosurfactant producing halophilic bacterium isolated from solar salt works in India and their biomedical importance

Sl. no Antibacterial activity Antifungal activity
  Bacterial pathogens Activity (mm of zone of inhibition) Fungal pathogens Activity
1 Staphylococcus aureus 15.35 ± 0.78a Trichophyton rubrum +++
2 Klebsiella pneumonia 15. 60 ± 0.85 a Aspergillus niger ++++
3 Streptococcus pyrogens 11.98 ± 0.45 b Aspergillus flavus +++
4 Salmonella typhi 17.33 ± 0.15 c Fusarium sp ++++
  1. ++++: higher activity; ++: medium activity; +: less activity.
  2. Means with the same superscripts (a-c) do not differ from each other (P < 0.001)- One way ANOVA.
