Banu Bayram, Harun Onlu, Hanifi Korkoca and Nilufer Selcuk    

Abstract: In this study, ethanol, water, methanol and acetone extracts of Tulipa sintenisii (Baker) were tested for in vitro antimicrobial activity using disc diffusion method. All of the extracts exhibited antimicrobial effect on Staphylococcus auresus (ATCC 6538), Escherichia coli (ATCC 25922) and Pseudomonas syringae pv. Tomato (DSM 60407 (DSMZ)). While streptomycin (10 μg) which is used for control generates a zone diameter of approximately 15 mm against test microorganisms, it is ascertained that acetone extract generates an inhibition zone diameter of 10.5 mm against Staphylococcus auresus, 12 mm against Escherichia coli and an inhibition zone diameter of 14 mm against Pseudommonas syringae pv. tomato. As a result of the study, it can be said that the extracts of Tulipa sintenisii involves antimicrobial substances against the microorganisms which are used for this study. However, much more complicated researches are needed.
