AIMS To develop a method to detect bacteria from environmental samples that are able to metabolize lignin. METHODS AND RESULTS A previously developed UV-vis assay method for lignin degradation activity has been developed for use as a spray assay on agar plates. Nine mesophilic strains were isolated using this method from woodland soil incubated in enrichment cultures containing wheat straw lignocellulose: four Microbacterium isolates, two Micrococcus isolates, Rhodococcus erythropolis (all… CONTINUE READING
