ISOLATION AND IDENTIFICATION OF BACILLUS SPP. FROM SOIL OF BAHMANSHIR RIVERSIDE IN ABADAN CITY-Iran AND EVALUATION OF THEIR ANTIBACTERIAL PROPERTIES

Article excerpt

Background: Bacillus species being the predominant soil bacteria because of their resistant endospore formation and production of essential antibiotic like bacitracin. The aim of this study was to isolation of Bacillus Spp. From riverside soil and investigation of antimicrobial characteristics against some pathogenic bacteria

Methods: fifty soil samples were collected from different sites of Bahmanshir riverside in Abadan city, and analyzed for the presence of Bacillus species. The media used in this research was nutrient broth and agar medium. The Bacillus species were differentiated by their biochemical characteris- tics. The inhibitory effect of Bacillus strains against the target bacteria including: Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonel- la typhi, Shigella Spp. and Corynebacterium diphtheria was examined.

Results: The identified Bacillus species included Bacillus cere- us (93. …
