Abstract

Endophyte fungi are microbe that living inside the plant tissue without harming the host plant. Endophyte fungi can produce secondary metabolite which can be used as antioxidant, anticancer and antimicobes compound. Endophyte fungi can be found in many plants especially herbs such as turmeric (Curcuma longa L). The aims of this study are to isolate and identify endophyte fungi from stem of C. longa L. which is potential as an antioxidant producer. The endophyte fungi isolated from turmeric stem were 12 isolates. Antioxidant activity was assayed using 1,1-Diphenyl-2-picryl-hydrazyl (DPPH) showed that isolate K.Cl.Sb.B1 produced the highest inhibition value (78,81%). Based on molecular identification, the isolate K.Cl.Sb.B1 was Colletotrichum sp.
