Abstract:

The green gram seeds were collected from the market and its antimicrobial and anticancer activity was studied.  Green gram plays an important role in our day to day life.  It is mainly used as sun tan and skin moisturizers. In this study the bacteria involved in skin infections are isolated and treated against the green gram to evaluate its susceptibility using antimicrobial activity. Using plant tissue culture technique the callus of green gram was also isolated and the study was done to compare both green gram and callus of green gram. Research has been developing to evaluate green gram as a anticancer agent. In this study the anticancer activity of green gram was performed using MTT assay method to evaluate its cytotoxicity against the cancer and Vero cell lines. Lectin is one of the major active compounds in green gram. It is purified and its activity was performed using hemeagglutination method.
