Abstract:

The study was undertaken to evaluate the antibacterial activity of laccase from Bacillus subtilis. Laccase was extracted using rice bran as substrate and analysed using guaiacol. Anti-bacterial activity against Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus was assessed by broth microdilution employing direct colony suspension method. Laccase was found to inhibit the growth of E. coli. However, no antibacterial activity could be observed against Staphylococcus aureus. Hence, laccase cannot be considered as an effective broad spectrum antibacterial agent. Since the antibacterial potential is proved, its activity in combination with other antimicrobial agents may be evaluated.
