Abstract

Tuberculosis (TB) disease is caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Despite the development of anti-TB drugs, but still unable to treat persistent TB, there were 3 million deaths in the 1990s due to this disease. Therefore, TB remains a leading cause of mortality worldwide into the 21st century. In this study, leave extracts were obtained and subjected to agar-diffusion screening systems with acetate and glucose utilization of H8000 Mycobacterium smegmatis mc²155 targeted on glyoxylate cycle and two component signal transduction. The screening result showed that all the extract fractions showed inhibition against glyoxylate cycle with the n-butanol showed the most promising potential to be develop as anti-persistent drugs for treating persistent mycobacteria with cytotoxic effect. In two-component screening system, the dichloromethane extract and aqueous extract showed promising activity targeting two-component system.
