Abstract

Bacillus cereus has been reported for the first time as phytase producer. Both qualitative and quantitative screening of the bacterial isolates was done to select potent phytase producer bacteria. Different biochemical tests, antimicrobial sensitivity tests and gram staining were performed on the selected strain for biochemical characterization of the organism. Out of 69 bacterial strains isolated from different sources NSD-Bacteria identified as Bacillus cereus MTCC 10072 from IMTECH Chandigarh was selected for further studies. Microscopic observations, biochemical test results and different enzyme assays showed the Bacillus cereus as a potent and novel phytase producer along with the production of other commercially important enzymes. Different experiments conducted in the present study will be useful for optimization of growth conditions for bacteria and thereby maximum enzyme production.
