OCCURRENCE AND EXTRACELLULAR ENZYMATIC ACTIVITY PROFILES OF BACTERIAL STRAINS FROM HOT SPRINGS OF ARUNACHAL PRADESH, INDIALIIVIPON BORA AND INDRA BARUAH
Extra cellular enzymatic activities of mesophilic and thermophilic bacterial strains of hot springs of Tawang district of Arunachal Pradesh have been studied. Bacterial strains of spring water and sediments were assessed on Nutrient agar medium. Sediment samples consist of more thermophiles than mesophiles. About 75% of the isolates tested showed extra cellular enzyme activity. Out of 32 isolates screened, 22,22 , 17 and 10 isolates exhibited lipase, protease, amylase and cellulase activities respectively. This study shows that bacterial strains from the thermal springs need further investigations in view of their bioactive compounds and enzymes.
