Due to over exploitation of its bark for medicinal herbs and made worse by problem in conventional breeding, Rauvolfia serpentina (L.) Benth ex Kurz, has been considered rare and was currently reported to be an endangered species. Therefore, conservation measure is urgent to be taken by micropropagation. The main objective of present study was to study rapid in vitro multiplication and the antibacterial effect of in vitro leaves from Rauvolfia serpentina on Escherichia coli. Direct regeneration was recorded best in MS medium with BAP 2.0 mg/l and induction of root with IBA 0.2 mg/l. The antibacterial activity was detected by using agar well diffusion method. Ethanol extract of Rauvolfia serpentina effectively inhibited the growth of E. coli
