Inhibition Studies of Cellulolytic Activities Isolated from Planococcus Citri

Abstract

The study was performed to isolate the cellulolytic activities from a mealy bug Planococcus citri and to check their enzyme inhibition against leaf extract of Azdirachta indica and Buxus Sempervirens. Enzyme assay confirmed the presence of endoglucanase activity. Aqueous and non-aqueous fractions showed the maximum inhibition. Proteins containing fraction also reflected inhibition of activity that might lead to identification of some active peptides against cellulolytic activity.
