Cellulase-producing bacteria were isolated from soil and identified as Pseudomonas fluorescens, Bacillus subtilIs, E. coli, and Serratia marcescens. Optimization of the fermentation medium for maximum cellulase production was carried out. The culture conditions like pH, temperature, carbon sources, and nitrogen sources were optimized. The optimum conditions(More)
Anti microbial activity of three medicinal plants (Murraya, Azadirachta, and Ocimum) on Urinary tract pathogens were investigated. The methanolic extracts of leaf of all three medicinal plants were the potent antimicrobial agent than ethanolic extract. Methanolic extract of all the three plants inhibited the growth of Kliebsiella, Escherichia and Serratia(More)
The soil samples were collected and were primarily screened for isolation of amylase producing fungi. Among the isolated fungi, amylase producing isolates were identified by growing on starch agar media. The isolates exhibiting the maximum zone of clearance on starch agar media by iodine were identified and were subcultured on potato dextrose agar (PDA).(More)
Antibiotic is one of the most important commercially exploited secondary metabolites produced by bacteria, fungi and Streptomyces and employed in a wide range. Most of the antibiotics used today are from the microbes. Bacteria are easy to isolate, culture, maintain and to improve their strain. Bacillus species being the predominant soil bacteria because of(More)
