Abstract

The main objective of the present paper is to determine the total phenolic content, amino acid content, carbohydrate content and heavy metal determination by Folin-Ciocalteau reagent (F-C) method ,Ninhydrine method, anthrone method, inductively coupled plasma- atomic emission, respectively. And to verify the antimicrobial activity of the plant by disc diffusion method. The total phenolic content ranged from 340 to 500 mg/l gallic acid equivalent. The amino acids content the highest percentage was found in the ethanol extract (60.76%).Total carbohydrates were determined and the highest percentage was found in the ethanol extract (65.76%).Several metals including Pb, Cu, Cd and Zn were analyzed in S. borumensis roots by ICP-ES spectrophotometer and showed that it was in normal range compared to certified reference material the crude protein of S. borumensis roots was (7.15%). The ash content was a measure of the presence of inorganic compounds in drug. Ash content was (6.4%). The fiber content was (13.5%).The fats content was (2.1%).The antibacterial and antifungal activity of plant extracts with different concentrations (100, 50, 25, 12.5, 6.25mg ∕ ml) were investigated by disk diffusion assay, four extracts were tested against five micro-organisms; two strains of Gram-positive (Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis), two strains of Gram-negative bacteria (Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa) and one fungus (Candida albicans). The result showed that for all micro-organisms the activity decreased by decreasing concentration of the extracts. The chloroform and ethanol 80% roots extracts gave the highest activity with inhibition zone (20mm and 17mm) respectively against Escherichia coli where reference antibiotic ciprofloxacin and erythromycin gave zone of (17mm and 12mm) respectively
