Abstract:

Enterobacteriaceae of the genus Pantoea are characterized as Gram-negative and have been isolated from a wide variety of environments including soil, water, dust, dairy products, meat, fish, insects, humans and animals. Most of the time they are found associated with a wide variety of plants. The objective of this work was to identify and characterize biochemical, morphological and enzymatic activity, as well as the influence of abiotic factors in a Pantoea isolated from industrial laundry effluent in Pernambuco. The results showed that the bacterium presents characteristics similar to those presented by the species of Pantoea agglomerans; however, the biochemical and morphological tests were not enough to accurately identify the species. However, the isolated species showed production of enzymes such as cellulase, protease and polyphenoloxidase, demonstrating enzymatic biotechnological potential. In addition to tolerance to high concentrations of salinity, they present as mesophyll, cerscendo in optimal temperature of 30 ° C and good growth in the pH 7.0 and 8.0.


Keywords: Pantoea, Industrial effluent, Biochemical characteristics, Fatty acids.
