Isolation and characterization of a Cr(VI) reducing Bacillus firmus strain from industrial effluents.


A chromium resistant bacterial strain KUCr1 exhibiting potential Cr(VI) reducing ability under in vitro aerobic condition is reported. The bacterial strain showed varied degree of resistance to different heavy metals. The MIC of chromium to this strain was found to be 950 mM under aerobic culture condition in complex medium. The factors affecting Cr(VI… (More)
