“…The difference in sensitivity between Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria against propolis is explained by the characteristics of the cell wall composition between these groups (Najmadeen & Kakamand 2009). However, in this work, propolis was shown to have significant activity against Gram-positive organisms, converging with studies by Dias et al (2012) and Fernandes et al (2015). Wagh (2013) reports that components with medicinal potential are constantly present in propolis, thus there is reinforcement that there is an antimicrobial potential in propolis due to its components.…”

“…Among the common compounds of all the studied species, we find spathulenol, ledol and copaene with activity previously described in the literature: the antimicrobial activity of spathulenol was demonstrated against Cryptococcus neoformans and Enterococcus faecalis (MIC 0.2 mg/ml), Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis (MIC 1.35 and 1.5 mg/ml, respectively), and Sarcina lutea , Bacillus subtilis and Xanthomonas campestris (MIC 0.015 mg/ml) . Ledol‐enriched fraction (12 %) showed antimicrobial activity against Staphylococcus aureus (MIC=0.05 mg/ml), Bacillus cereus and Listeria monocytogenes (MIC=0.1 mg/ml), Enterococcus faecalis and Enterobacter aerogenes (MIC=0.4 mg/ml) and Campylobacter jejuni (MIC 0.03 mg/ml) .…”

“…Furthermore, the cones yielded over 1% w/w spathulenol in flash chromatography. Spathulenol (Table 5) is an antimicrobial sesquiterpene [26] that demonstrates enhanced activity against skin pathogens when encapsulated ( Table 6). An encapsulation effect similar to that derived from inclusion in the chemically diverse gum that exudes from the cones.…”
