Research on endophytes is burgeoning immense importance since recent years with almost all plants harboring untold number of microorganism as endophytes. Endophytic plethora is reported to secrete unique novel metabolites bearing therapeutic property which are being constantly exploited. The present study uncaps the bacterial endophytes inhabiting stem and roots of Mimosa pudica L located in southern part of India. The screening resulted in isolation of one forty one myriad bacterial endophytes with different morphological characteristics. The endophytes isolated in the present study will be exploited for further research which will be promising enough to extract the novel leads of pharmaceutical importance
