SOLATION OF AMYLASE PRODUCING BACTERIA FROM COASTAL WATERS OF BAY OF BENGAL, VISAKHAPATNAM: CHARACTERIZATION OF BACILLUS COAGULANS

K. SURIBABU AND T.LALITHA GOVARDHAN

Abstract

As the marine waters are the treasures of enzyme producing organisms, investigations were undertaken to isolate and identify the extra cellular amylase enzyme-producing bacteria capable of digesting the starch. Amylase producing bacteria, Bacillus coagulans has been isolated and reported first time from coastal waters of Bay of Bengal collected at Gangavaram beach, Visakhapatnam. Bacillus coagulans was isolated by observed halo zone of amylase activity on starch-agar plates by pouring Iodine on the overnight-incubated cultured Petri plates. Colony, morphological and biochemical characteristics of the isolate were reported.
