High costs of natural cellulose utilization and cellulase production are an industrial challenge. In view of this, an isolated soil actinobacterium identified as Promicromonospora sp. VP111 showed potential for production of major cellulases (CMCase, FPase, and β-glucosidase) utilizing untreated agricultural lignocellulosic wastes. Extensive disintegration(More)
Bacteria exist in a wide range of habitats ranging from psychrophilic through mesophilic to thermophilic. These different habitats have distinct environmental restriction for their existence. These microorganisms evolve themselves to survive in a specific habitat through the phenotypic and genotypic changes. In the bacterial domain, in silico analysis of(More)
A novel aerobic, non-motile, rod-shaped, catalase- and oxidase-positive bacterial strain, designated UKS3T, was isolated from garden soil, and subjected to polyphasic taxonomic analysis. Strain UKS3T formed whitish, viscous colonies on nutrient agar and was Gram-staining negative. Phylogenetic analysis, based on 16S rRNA gene sequence, showed that maximum(More)
The cellulases from different cellulolytic organisms have evolutionary relationships, which range from single-celled prokaryotes to the complex eukaryotes of the living world. This in silico analysis revealed the presence of a conserved cellulase domain along with evolutionary relationships among cellulases from several species of Archaea, Bacteria, and(More)
