ABSTRACT:
Wattakaka volubilis is a tall woody climber belonging to the family Asclepiadaceae. Leaves, flowers and the rind of unripe fruits are boiled and eaten as a vegetable or used in curries, the cooking removes the bitterness. The ethanolic extracts of Wattakaka volubilis was examined for in vitro antimicrobial activity. The antimicrobial activity was performed on the extracts of Wattakaka volubilis against human pathogenic bacteria such as E.coli, S.aureus and fungal strain such as A.niger, A.flavus. The results were compared with reference drug ampicillin. The extracts exhibited the growth inhibitory activity in a dose dependent manner.
