Peel and pulp of Cucumis sativus L. fruit were extracted from aqueous (water) and phosphate buffered solution at incubated temperature of 37degree celcius similar to normal human physiological temperature to investigate the potential of these extracts as antibacterial and cytotoxic agents using antibacterial susceptibility assay against six pathogenic bacteria of gram positive and negative and cytotoxic assay against human non-small cell lung carcinoma cell line (H1299) and human breast adenocarcinoma cell line (MCF-7). The phytochemical contents of all extracts were determined to correlate with their biological properties. Kulit dan pulpa buah Cucumis sativus L. telah diekstrak dengan menggunakan akueus (air) and larutan penimbal fosfat yang sedang dieram pada suhu 37C sama dengan suhu normal fisiologi manusia untuk mengkaji potensi pelbagai ekstrak tersebut sebagai agen antibakteria and agen sitotoksik dengan menggunakan asai kelemahan antibakteria terhadap enam bakteria patogenik gram positif dan negatif dan asai sitotoksik terhadap sel karsinoma paru-paru bukan kecil manusia (H1299) dan sel adenokarsinoma payudara manusia (MCF-7). Kandungan fitokimia dalam semua ekstrak telah ditentukan supaya berhubung kait dengan sifat-sifat biologi.
