Abstract:

Natural gas is mainly released from wetlands, rice fields, enteric fermentation in animals and landfills etc. It also has impact on environment as it leads to greenhouse effect. In this research natural gas is used for isolation of natural gas utilizing organisms from rice paddy field and Garden soil. These isolates were further screened for Single Cell Production (SCP) by using natural gas as a sole source of carbon.6 isolates out of 11 isolates were used for further studied. Isolate No. 9 and No. 10 i.e. Candida Lusitania showed 40% and 30% of protein respectively with 1% and 13% Nucleic acid content respectively. Single Cell Protein (SCP) produced from the isolates were subjected for Sodium Dodecyl Sulphate (SDS) PAGE analysis which showed 40kDa band size.
