Abstract

Allium senescens ssp. montanum ethanol extract analysis by liquid chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry detection (LC/MS) revealed 58.37 µg alliin/ml extract and 0.919 mg allicin/ml plant extract. The plant extract had antifungal effects against all tested speciessuch as Aspergillus niger, Botrytis cinerea, B. paeoniae, Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. tulipae, and Penicillium gladioli, with minimum inhibitory concentration value (MIC) varying from 100 to 160 µl/ml.

 

Key words: Allicinalliin, Allium senescens ssp. montanum, antifungal activity, liquid chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry detection (LC/MS).

Abbreviation

LC/MS, Liquid chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry detection;MIC, minimum inhibitory concentration value; HPLC, high performance liquid chromatography; P, percentage; ANOVA, analysis of variance.
