ABSTRACT: Mangroves are known to possess medicinal properties and this has been established by research over years. The screen of antitumor and growth effector potential of few mangrove plants of Bhitarkanika natural reserve Odisha, helps to identify the total therapeutic potential of these plant extracts due to net composition of several primary and secondary metabolites ranging from carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids to that of aliphatic alcohols and pheromones. Radish seed phytotoxicity assay and Zone of inhibition study against Agrobacterium tumefaciens and potato disc assay show a distinct interference of plant extracts against tumor formation and bacterial growth, thereby attributing to its antitumor and growth inhibitor properties. This screen helps in identifying these potential plant types that can be used for medicinal purposes against specific bacterias and microbes and also be used as a nutrient supplement for fighting against the free oxide radicals.
