Study of the Prodigiosin productivity from Serratia marcescens isolated from environmental and clinical sources and the effect on some microbial pathogens


The Prodigiosin pigment was purified by using the organic solventschloroform and methanol with thin layer chromategraphy method. The biological activity for prodigiosin pigment was studied on the Staphylococcus epidermidis ,Staphylococcus aureus bacteria in in vitro tests , it has shown highly degree of inhibition, also the in vivo tests showed that clearly inhibition in animal model.
