This study was planned to obtain fungi from garden of SPW Degree and PG College, Tirupati with the extreme goal of producing antibacterial nanoparticles. Among 5 funguses isolated, an isolate coded as SPW-1 identified as Penicillium sp has produced nanoparticles extracellularly within 12 h. These nanoparticles were characterized by UV-Vis. Spectrophotometer, TEM, and FTIR analysis. Penicillium sp synthesized gold nanoparticles showed many interesting morphologies with a size of 4-20 nm. The presence and binding of proteins with nanoparticles was confirmed by FTIR study. Interestingly, the fungal derived gold nanoparticles exhibited superior antibacterial activity than the standard antibiotic, penicillin-G against E. coli and Bacillus cereus. Thus, the obtained results reveal that these antibacterial nanoparticles could be explored as promising candidates for a variety of biomedical and pharmaceutical applications.
