Siberian Scientists Discovered New Sources of Medicines Inside Plants

Researchers clarify that microorganisms inhabiting plants may possess medicinal properties.

      Some of the endosymbionts, i.e. microorganisms living inside the plants, have unique medicinal properties that can be used for developing new medicines to fight serious diseases.

      Professor Svetlana Prudnikova from the Basic Biotechnology Department of the Siberian Federal University has reported on that.

      "Plants are closely connected with microorganisms - and microorganisms play a big role in plant life, while plants have their effect on microbes. As a result, not only the plants as such but also the microorganisms that inhabit them may have medicinal properties. The substances emitted by them can be used as resources of antimicrobial agents for the treatment of resistant strains of diseases, for example”, - she said.
