Isolation and Identification of Enterobacter Sp. Resistant to Potassium Tellurite from Qom Industrial Wastewater in Bioremediation of Contaminated Industrial Environments

Article excerpt

Background: Abundant use of toxic oxianion of tellu- rite(TeO32-) in various industries such as textile, tannery, electroplating increase the environment pollution by toxic microorganisms and eukaryotes. Bioreduction of tellurite metalloid oxyanions in resistant bacteria in environments can be used as a valuable tool in biotechnology to detect the mi- croorganisms for bioremediation of contaminated areas.

Methods: In this study,84 strains of bacteria were isolated from industry wastes. MIC (Minimum Inhibitory Concentra- tion) determined with a concentration ranging from 0.1 to 26 mM potassium tellurite in 34°C, 7days and using agar dilution method. Then resistant strain was isolated that toleranced concentration of 23mM. In other researches,tolerate to con- centration of 23mM was maximumt. …
