From: Antibacterial activity of Nepalese wild mushrooms against Staphylococcus aureus and Propionibacterium acnes

Compound S. aureus P. acnes
MIC (µg/mL) MBC (µg/mL) MIC (µg/mL) MBC (µg/mL)
(1) Hispidin 25 25 100 100
(2) Homovanillic acid >400 >400
(3) Protocatechualdehyde 400 >400
(4) Protocatechuic acid >400 >400
(5) Vanillin >400 >400
  1. S. aureus, Staphylococcus aureus; P. acnes, Propionibacterium acnes; –, means that the MIC and MBC values were not investigated for the respective compounds
