Enzyme activity and genetical characterisation of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens from textile effluents
T Jayaseelan, R Damodaran, S Ganesan and P Mani
Textile effluent is one of the well-known sources of pollution, which usually contain several chemicals, which contaminate the receiving water resources. In Tirupur, the textile factories discharge millions litres of untreated effluents into the drains that eventually empty into Noyyal river. Textile effluents contain carcinogenic aromatic amines, dyes, organic and inorganic materials, bacteria. Bacterial strain was isolated from textile effluents. Bacillus amyloliquefaciens was identified based on the microscopic observations and biochemical characterization. Biochemical characteristics revealed the isolated organism as Bacillus amyloliquefaciens. The identification was confirmed by 16S rRNA sequencing. They were identified as Bacillus amyloliquefaciens. The sequences were deposited in GENBANK. The accession number was KU041530. The present research was conducted to isolation, enzyme activity and confirmation of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens.
