Antibacterial property of Pleurotus porrigens Pers. and Trametes versicolor Linn. crude extracts against Escherichia Coli and Staphylococcus aureus


Author(s): Jeffrey T Tonog and Manuela Cecille G Vicencio

Abstract: The study aimed to determine the significant difference between the P. porrigens Pers. crude extract and T. versicolor Linn. crude extract based on their antibacterial property on S. aureus.; determine the significant difference between the P. porrigens Pers. crude extract and T. versicolor Linn. crude extract based on their antibacterial property on E. coli; determine the significant difference between the following based on their antibacterial action: P. porrigens Pers. crude extract versus Clindamycin® on S. aureus; T. versicolor Linn. crude extract versus Clindamycin® on S. aureus; P. porrigens Pers. crude extract versus Cefalexin on E. coli; and to determine the significant difference between the following based on their antibacterial property: Pleurotus porrigens Pers. crude extract, Trametes versicolor Linn. crude extract, and Clindamycin® on S. aureus; and Pleutorus porrigens Pers. crude extract, Trametes versicolor Linn. crude extract, and Cefalexin on E. coli. The study revealed that the result of comparison of the bacteriostatic property of P. porrigens crude extract and T. versicolor crude extract on S. aureus using T-test is not significant since, the computed t-value of 2.434 is lower than the tabular t-value of 2.776. It implies that the antibacterial property of P. porrigens crude extract is comparable to T. versicolor crude extract against S. aureus; and the result of comparison of the bacteriostatic property of P. porrigens crude extract and T. versicolor crude extract on E. coli using T-test is not significant since, the computed t-value of 0.333 is lower than the tabular t-value of 2.776. It implies that the antibacterial property of P. porrigens crude extract is comparable to T. versicolor crude extract against E. coli. It implies that the antibacterial property of P. porrigens Pers. crude extract, T. versicolor Linn. crude extract is comparable to commercial antibacterial drugs used as positive control in the study against S. aureus and E. coli. It is recommended that same study must, use other species of edible and non-edible mushrooms to discover if they have antibacterial properties on the same kind of microorganisms used in the study, focus on the bactericidal property P. porrigens Pers. crude extract and T. versicolor Linn. crude extract, hence, bacteriostatic property was already used in the study and used other kind of microorganisms belong to the same kind of genus to determine the antibacterial property of P. porrigens Pers. extract and T. versicolor Linn. extract.
