ASPECTS OF MUSHROOMS AND THEIR EXTRACTS AS NATURAL ANTIMICROBIAL AGENTS
Keywords:Antimicrobial resistance, Mushroom diversity, Natural extract, Medical application
Nowadays, multidrug antimicrobial resistance is a very common issue globally. Antimicrobial resistance is fueling the fire, and it has been noted that infectious disease incidence and deaths are rising throughout the world. Many pathogens have been reported to develop resistance to these synthetic and semi-synthetic drugs leading to minimized efficacy and resulting in substantial economic losses all over the world. A new approach for choosing natural extracts of plants and fungi as medicines and natural antibacterial agents has been developed to address this challenge. According to recent investigations and research, mushrooms and their extracts contain bioactive compounds that can be used as a natural antibacterial alternative against a number of bacterial species. In addition to having medical properties like antibacterial, anticancer, and antioxidant activity, mushrooms are a highly nutritious food source. The present study emphasized on the antimicrobial resistance, mechanisms and antibacterial properties of mushrooms.
