Abstract: Viscum album L. subsp. abietis (Wiesb.) (Loranthaceae) is extensively used for treatment in traditional medicine. This plant was collected in the region of Artvin, northern Turkey. Different concentrations of n-hexane extract were tested using the agar diffusion technique against 6 bacteria (Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Enterobacter cloacae and Proteus vulgaris), and 1 fungus (Candida albicans). We determined that fractions 6 and 7 of n-hexane extract of V. album subsp. abietis showed antimicrobial activity against the micro-organisms tested.
