摘要或動機

Antibacterial Properties of Mānuka Mānuka (Leptospermum scoparium) is a native 紐西蘭 plant that has long been used by indigenous Maori for its medicinal and therapeutic properties, yet is relatively unknown to science. Many of our native species may contain novel compounds with practical applications in our lives. Research indicates that mānuka has anti-microbial, anti-fungal, herbicidal, insecticidal and anti-bacterial properties, and suggests that compounds similar to Grandiflorone (ß-triketones) cause these effects. This project investigates the antibacterial properties of mānuka leaves, using the bacteria Photobacterium phosphoreum for biological testing. With the recent rise in multidrug-resistant bacteria, it is now more vital than ever to utilize traditional knowledge to inform research and development of innovative new antibiotics, antimicrobials and similar biologically important compounds.
