Abstract:

Objective of the study is to enhance the productivity of pigmented compound of Streptomyces flavofuscus ARITM02 by optimizing its physiological conditions. Streptomyces flavofuscus ARITM02 was screened for its pigment producing ability. In order to improve its efficiency, the effects of various physiological conditions like, temperature, pH, incubation time, carbon and nitrogen sources were optimized and its productivity was examined by optical density measurement from UV-Vis spectrophotometer. Maximum pigment production was found at pH 7.5. The best nitrogen source for pigment production is peptone, similarly best carbon source is starch. The incubation time of 96 hours is found best to maximum yield of pigment and the optimum temperature was found 35 0C. The results from this study confirmed that the antibacterial substances produced by Streptomyces sp. were found to be more effective after its optimization.


Keywords: Pigment, Optimization, optical density.
