|Abstract: ||Aims: The aim of this study was to characterize the inhibitory mechanism in teak
(Tectona grandis) bark and to determine its effectiveness against Listeria
monocytogenes and methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
Methods and Results: Methanol extracts of teak bark were inhibitory to L.
monocytogenes and MRSA by means of disc diffusion. Gas chromatography-mass
spectrometry, and 1H and 13C nuclear mass resonance analyses revealed that the
inhibitory compound had a molecular weight of 174, and a structure of 5-hydroxy-
1,4- naphthalenedione (Juglone).
Conclusions: 5-hydroxy-1,4-naphthalenedione (Juglone) inhibited L. monocytogenes
Significance and Impact of the Study: A compound in an extract of teak bark was
inhibitory to L. monocytogenes and MRSA.|
