Abstract
Cellulose, a major polysaccharide found in agricultural residues and industrial and municipal wastes. In the present study cellulolytic microorganisms were isolated. Eight isolates of cellulose degrading bacteria were isolated from soil, municipal solid waste, plant residues in 10 different villages of saline belt of Akola District, Maharashtra by enriching the basal culture medium with 1% cellulose as substrate for cellulose degradation. To indicate the cellulose activity of the organisms, diameter of clear zone around the colony were measured. Enzyme activity was determined by DNS method. The most potent cellulolytic isolates were identified as Bacillus subtilis.
