ABSTRACT                                                                                           

The invitro antifungal activity of endophytic actinomycetes viz. Streptomyces has been investigated against Candida albicans and Candida parapsilosis. About nine Genera of endophytic actinomycetes (Streptomyces) were isolated from various parts (leaf, seed, root) of Coelogynae ovalis Lindl on different media and were performed by different methods, as preliminary screening of Streptomyces, secondary screening by fermentation in shake flask and assay of antifungal activity from fermented broth filterate. Streptomyces showed significant antifungal activity against Candida albicans when performed by fermented broth filterate method. Also GS broth supported the greatest antifungal activity.

KEYWORDS: Coelogynae ovalis, antifungal activity, Streptomyces, fermented broth, cultural filterate, Candida albicans, Candida parapsilosis.
