Isolation and Characterization of an Azo Dye Reactive Red 2 Degrading Bacteria from Dye Contaminated Soil


A bacterial strain GSM3, capable of decolorizing an azo dye Reactive Red 2 was isolated from dye contaminated soil sample collected from Ammu dyeing industry, Bellary, India. Based on phenotypic characteristics and 16S rDNA sequencing, strain GSM3 was identified as Pseudomonas aeruginosa GSM3. Isolate GSM3 showed 97% decolorization of Reactive Red 2 (300… (More)
