The antibacterial activity of the methanol and petroleum ether extracts of the normal and regenerated plants of Majorana hortensis Moench was tested against six bacteria (Serratia marcescens, Staphylococcus aureus, Proteus vulgaris, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, E. coli-XL Blue and Klebsiella pneumoniae) by well diffusion method. The study showed that all six organisms were sensitive to the methanol extract of the plant sample. Further, the extract of the regenerated plant was superior than that of the normal plant in its antibacterial activity. Significant activity was observed against E.coli, Serratia marcescens and Proteus vulgaris, moderate activity against Staphylococcus aureus while least effect was observed against Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Klebsiella pneumoniae.
