Abstract:

Mangrove forests are highly nutrient rich environment paves the way to the microbially vibrant ecosystem. Bacteria survive in this ecological niche tend to produce symbiotic or antagonistic metabolites, which is vital for many biotechnological applications. Muthupet mangrove is one of the important mangrove forests in India. In the present study, isolated some bacterial strains and the isolated strains were subjected to screen its antibacterial potential against human pathogenic bacteria. The antimicrobial assay showed one potential bacterium could able to produce antibacterial compound against enterobacteria members. The highest activity was recorded against E. coli. Phenotypic characterization of the active isolate proved that the isolate is Bacillus cereus. The antimicrobial compound produced by B. cereus showed its promising biotechnological application.


Keywords: Mangrove, Bacillus cereus, Antimicrobial activity, Muthupet mangrove, E. coli.
