Many antimicrobial drugs are going to become resistant to different pathogens, so the discovery of new antimicrobial products is an important public health concern. Nardostachys jatamansi (D. Don) DC (Valerianaceae) is an important traditional herbal medicine used as tranquillizer. CNS sedative. antiepilepsy, cardiotonic. diuretic, heptatonic, analgesic and in boils, itch and eye diseases. Carbonic anhydrase inhibitors are the potential source of treatment in case of glaucoma, hypertension and epilepsy and also used as diuretics. The aim of present study was to evaluate the antibacterial activity of methanolic extract of N. jatamansi against different bacterial strains and to estimate its carbonic anhydrase inhibitory potential. Antibacterial activity was evaluated by agar well diffusion assay and broth microdilution assay. The study revealed that N. jatamansi extract is sensitive to all tested bacterial strains. The zones of inhibition and MIC ranged from 8-22 at a concentration of 1-5 mg/mL and 0.3-0.6 mg/mL. respectively. Methanolic extract of N. jatamansi showed marked inhibition of carbonic anhydrase (IC 50 712.41 +/- 0.001 mu g/mL) when compared with standard acetazolamide. The results of the study suggest that N. jatamansi may be a valuable plant source of medicinally useful active compounds that can be helpful in bacterial infections and showed some relation with the traditional use of this plant in various diseases.

Determination of colistin resistance in Escherichia coli isolates from foods in Turkey, 2011-2015
Güzel, Mustafa; Avşaroğlu, M Dilek; Soyer, Yeşim (2020-05-01)
Antimicrobial resistance of pathogenic microorganisms is an emerging public health concern. Intensive use of antibiotics in food animals might increase antimicrobial resistance in foodborne pathogens. Colistin is a last resort antibiotic for treatment of multidrug resistant (MDR) Gram negative pathogens. The recent antimicrobial resistance studies revealed a mobile antimicrobial resistance gene (mcr) that provides resistance to colistin. Furthermore, the gene has been found in different genera. Therefore, t...
Development and analysis of controlled release polymeric rods containing vancomycin
Tağıt, Oya; Hasırcı, Vasıf Nejat; Department of Biotechnology (2005)
Antibiotic use is a vital method for the treatment of most diseases involving bacterial infections. Unfortunately, in certain cases these agents are not effective in treatments against diseases for either some limitation in antibiotic usage because of the side effects or some distribution problems caused by physiological or pathological barriers in the body. Such problems are thought to be minimized by development of controlled release systems which involve implantation of antibiotic loaded polymeric system...
Synthesis of chlorotoxin and its derivatives as enzyme inhibitors
Kesici, Mehmet Seçkin; Özçubukçu, Salih; Özen, Can; Department of Chemistry (2017)
Over the last decades, peptides have been heavily studied and proven beneficial in drug industry due to their high selectivity and potency compared to small organic molecules. A biologically and pharmaceutically significant peptide, chlorotoxin (CLTX), is one of the important peptide used in cancer studies. It is a neurotoxin, isolated from the venom matrix of Israeli Scorpion, Leirius quinquestriatus and it contains 36 amino acids and four disulfide bridges at a molecular mass of about 4 kDa. CLTX is mostl...
Determination of phenolic compound profiles and antioxidant effect of black elderberry, echinacea and iceland moss extracts on late-release soft lozenge
Yıldız, Özge; Bayındırlı, Alev; Çapanoğlu Güven, Esra; Department of Food Engineering (2021-6)
Medicinal plants contain different bioactive compounds that have immune system stimulant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, anticancer and wound healing effects. Echinacea purpurea L., Sambucus nigra L. and Cetraria islandica L. are known with their high antioxidant content and health promoting properties. The main objective of the study was to determine the total phenolic content, total flavonoid content and antioxidant capacity of each plant extract with water and 75 % ethanol as so...
Design and characterization of capsaicin loaded nanoemulsions
Akbaş, Elif; Öztop, Halil Mecit; Söyler, Ulviye Betül; Department of Food Engineering (2016)
In recent years, nanoemulsion based systems have been successfully used in food, medical and pharmaceutical applications as effective lipophilic carrier systems for nutraceuticals, drugs, antioxidants and antimicrobial agents. The primary active ingredient of chili pepper, capsaicin is a hydrophobic substance and was proved to be a compound showing good antimicrobial activity against various microorganisms. The aim of the proposed study was to prepare and characterize capsaicin loaded nanoemulsion systems. ...
