Phyllanthus amarus endophyte assemblage and their bioactivity against bacteria was studied. The initial studies on screening the endophytic fungi from Phyllanthus amarus indicate their potential generation of bioactive compounds for new antibiotic discovery. Further research is in progress to determine bioactive compounds of other endophytic fungi and which fractions of the Gleosporium quercinum extract was responsible for the biological activity. Work is ongoing to elucidate the chemical structure of the metabolites. Hence, to our knowledge for the first time Phyllanthus amarus endophyte assemblage and their bioactivity against bacteria was studied.
