Description

The endophytic species of Verbascum Thapsus and their secondary metabolites, are analyzed for possible medicinal applications. Endophytic Fungi were derived from the root, leaf and stem samples of Verbascum Thapsus, better known as Common Mullein, from the Forest River Salt Marsh at Salem State University. These endophytes demonstrated strong antibacterial properties against different kinds of bacteria. Further analysis of the metabolite extracts in LC-MS showed 20 different medicinal compounds.
