Background: Anabasis setifera and Caroxylon imbricatum are two halophytic and xerophytic plant species belonging to the family Chenopoodiaceae s.str., that are distributed widely in dry environments of the Old World. This study investigated the antioxidant and antibacterial properties of the hydroethanolic extracts of fruit-bearing branches of these species collected from Zabol in the east of Iran.
Methods: The antimicrobial effect was essayed using broth microdilution and streak plate protocols against nine pathogenic microorganisms from different genera, including Klebsiella, Pseudomonas, Escherichia, Bacillus, Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Aspergillus, Fusarium and Candida. The antioxidant activity was measured by the DPPH free radical scavenging method.
Results: Extracts were effective on all tested bacterial and fungal strains except for Candida albicans, which Caroxylon imbricatum didn’t affect. The MIC values ranged from 8 to 2048 μg/ml. The IC50 values of 76.40 and 154.05 μg/ml were observed with Anabasis setifera and Caroxylon imbricatum extracts, respectively.
Conclusion: These plant species can efficiently treat infectious and oxidative stress-related diseases due to their broad spectrum antimicrobial properties and acceptable antioxidant activities.
