ABSTRACT

Two species of the genus Trametes (T. marianna and T. cingulata) from Nigeria were screened for antimicrobial activity against Pseudomonas syringae, Bacillus subtilis, and Cladosporium herbarum using the thin layer chromatography agar overlay method. None of the solvent extracts (n-hexane/diethyl ether, chloroform/acetone, and methanol) were active against Cladosporium herbarum, but all the solvent extracts inhibited the growth of Pseudomonas syringae and Bacillus subtilis. Preliminary chemical analysis of the extracts of both Trametes species showed that they contained phenolics and compounds that stained with blue-violet when sprayed with anisaldehyde in sulphuric acid. The profiles of the compounds in the extracts of the two species were very similar.
