Amir Reza Ebadi, Ali Rezaie, Mehrdad Nazeri and Behboud Jafari


Allium genus has some valuable species such as onion and garlic for human being. Allium jesdianum Bois species is a bulbar and durable plant with 2-3 leaves which grows in altitudes of Arasbaran region. The herb has various uses in foods and is used traditionally in treatment and decreasing rheumatic and digestive pains as well as renal calculus excrete. The aim of this study was to evaluating the anti bacterial effects of Allium jesdianum Boiss extract. Microorganisms were cultured in agar mauler Hilton media such that swabs smeared with bacterial suspension were moved traversal on the media surface then the media was turned at angle of 60° and culturing were repeated 2 times. These results demonstrated that sulfide compounds form an important part of extract’s constituents. Also, curzerenon and curzernne are the materials which are available significantly in this extract. Anti microbial effects of understudied herb are probably due to presence of sulfide and trepnoid compounds.
