Extraction and Screening of Bioactive Compounds with Antimicrobial Properties from Selected Species of Mollusk and Crustacean

Abstract

Abstract The resident animals of polluted areas possess possibly novel antimicrobials towards off infections. Selected species of sea invertebrates Perna viridis (Bivalve), Nerita albicilla (Gastropoda) and Ozius rugulosus (Crustacean) were tested for antibacterial activity against human pathogens Acinetobacter baumannii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Escherichia coli K1. The best results were obtained by methanol extracts of selected sea animals against Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The overall aim of this study is to gather preliminary information about the antimicrobial activity of invertebrates from Manora channel for potential use in the development of new antibiotics.
