Abstract

This study was carried out to determine the phenolic contents as well as to evaluate the antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of Genista microcephala. Total phenolic and flavonoid compounds were quantified. Antioxidant activity was evaluated by various in vitro tests, including Ferric Ion Reducing Activity (FRP), Cuprac Ion Reducing Antioxidant Capacity (CUPRAC), and total antioxidant capacities (TAC). The antimicrobial activity of ethyl acetate and butanolic extracts of G. microcephala in addition of fatty acids content of different parts of the studied plant was evaluated against human pathogenic bacteria, fish bacteria and two yeast. The used methods were agar diffusion method and the determination of minimal bactericidal and fungicidal concentrations (MBC and MFC). No significant difference was found between the two used solvents on total phenolic content (TPC). While, difference in total flavonoid content (TFC) were found to be significant. Ethylene acetate extract was the most actif regarding antioxidant assay. The tested activity seems to be due to the high content of this extract on isoflavonoids. The tested extracts demonstrated the lowest inhibition concentration for B.cereus RSKK 863.
