Inhibition properties of aqueous extracts of Pleurotus ostreatus were tested against bacterial pathogens such as Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas and E.coli. The purpose of the antibacterial study by agar well cut method be evidence for good inhibition properties aligned with Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas and E.coli. In Phytochemical tests presence of Proteins, reducing sugars and amino acids was investigated. The beyond clarification confirmed that bactericidal compounds possess in the Pleurotus ostreatus, which inhibit the growth of Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas and E.coli.
