Description

The fungal endophytes from the stem and roots of Salicornia depressa, commonly known as glassworts, were isolated and its medicinal properties were looked at. Both endophytes had a very similar strength of inhibition against E. coli, P. aeruginosa, S. aureus, and V. parahaemolyticus. Further analysis was done to obtain the chemical compounds of the endophytes on the liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry (LC–MS) machine.
