Anatomical Study and Antimicrobial Activities of Ammimajus
Keywords:Ammimajus, Antimicrobial activity, Plant extracts, Antibacterial activity
Ammimajus is a plant species in the family Apiaceae, The purpose of this study was to assess anatomical and antibacterial and antifungal activities of Ammimajus, which taken from collage of Sciences/Salaheddin University/Erbil. Anatomical studies by the using paraffin method, have shown that the outline of stems, petiole lamina, and margin, they contain secretary canals with presence unicellular glandular and unicellular non glandular trichomes. The antimicrobial activity prepared by extract using ethanol (95%) method from stem, leaf and flower, then provide the different concentration of extract, which shown the exhibit antibacterial effects on some microorganisms as Staphylococcus aureus,Acinetobacterbaumannii, Pseudomonasaeruginosa and Candida albicans.
