Description

The discovery and research of endophytic species has made great strides in allowing scientists to create a wide variety of new medications. For this research three endophytic species from Fallopia japonica, also known as Japanese Knotweed, were isolated and examined to determine if they are responsible for its medicinal antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-carcinogenic properties.
