  The phytochemistry and antimicrobial effects of water, methanol, chloroform and petroleum ether extracts of Senna alata leaves were studied. Extracts tested at a final concentration of 500 μg mL produced in vitro antimicrobial activities in assays against clinical isolates of Staphylococus aureus, Candida albicans, Escherichia coli, Proteus vulgaris, Pseudomonans aeruginosa and Bacillus subtilis. The zones of inhibitions produced by the extracts in agar diffusion assay against the test micro organisms ranged from 8 to 20 mm while the gentamycin antibiotic control produced zones that measured 5 mm. Preliminary phytochemical analysis of the plant extracts showed the presence of phenols, tannins, anthraquinoes, saponins, flavonoids.

  Floral and fruit tissues of two cultivars of plantain (Musa paradisiacal L.), P100-F (susceptible) and P200-1 (resistant to cigar-end rot disease), grown side by side in a field plot in Benin City, Nigeria, were analysed for soluble and tissue-bound amino acids, total carbohydrate and crude protein using paper chromatography and micro Kjeldahl methods. Diminished carbohydrate and protein concentrations and intensity spotting of alanine and leucine were found in fruit tissue digest of the susceptible plantain cultivar (P100-F) as compared with values in digests from the resistant cultivar (P200-1). The relevance of these results in relation to the management of cigar-end rot disease of plantain is discussed.
