dc.description.abstractMedicinal plants namely Ocimum sanctum Linn., Withania somnifera Dunal, Tinospora cordifolia (Willd.) Miers. ex Hook.f. & Thoms., Avicennia officinalis Linn. and Rhizophora mucronata Lam. were screened for anti-HIV activity in the present study. O. sanctum, T. cordifolia, A. officinalis and R. mucronata showed anti-HIV potential by inhibiting the virus by 2 different mechanisms. Interference with the gp120/CD4 interaction and inhibition of viral Reverse Transcriptase (RT) contributed to the overall anti-viral activity in vitro. Among these plants A. officinalis and R. mucronata are mangrove plants and their medicinal properties are rarely reported.en_US
