The Essential Oils of Rhaponticum carthamoides Hairy Roots and Roots of Soil-Grown Plants: Chemical Composition and Antimicrobial, Anti-Inflammatory, and Antioxidant Activities

Table 2

Antibacterial and antifungal activity of essential oils from Rhaponticum carthamoides hairy roots (HR) and roots of soil-grown plants (SGR). The Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC), the Minimum Bactericidal Concentration (MBC), and the Minimum Fungicidal Concentration (MFC) of essential oils were determined using the microdilution assay and are presented in µg/mL.
