Enzymatic activity of endophytic bacterial isolates of Jacaranda decurrens Cham. (Carobinha-do-campo)

Abstract: The objectives of this work was to isolate endophytic bacteria from Jacaranda decurrens Cham. and screening of some enzymes of biotechnological interest. Ten (10) bacterial species were isolated and identified from the leaves and steams. All the isolates presented enzymatic activity, which was ranked as follows: proteolytic (60%) and amilolytic activity (60%), lipolytic (40%), esterasic (40%). However, cellulolytic and pectinolytic activities were not detected. This is the first report on the isolation and ide… Show more

“…Acinetobacter, Bacillus, Pseudomonas have been identified as an endphytes in Echinacea medicinal plant (Lata et al 2006), while B. pumilus, Bacillus subtilis, B. megaterium, Pseudomonas mendocina were isolated as an Endophyte from the root of Medicinal Plant Chlorophytum borivilianum Safed musli (Panchal and Ingle 2011). B. licheniformis has been identified in Jacaranda decurrens plant (Carrim et al 2006). …”

“…In this, endophytic fungi are relatively unexplored area among microbe isolation and it represents a new source for retrieving the enzymes with different potentialities. 1 Theendophytic fungi on medicinal plant are proposed to have unique and extreme habitats possessing novel metabolic and enzyme systems which may help for the host protection and colonization. Furthermore, the endophytes are the economical sources in discovering the novel enzymes for medical purposes and this interest has been drawn after the discovery of taxol which is an anticancer drug used in medicinal fields.…”

“…The EI has been used a fast tool for selecting and comparing the enzyme production among different bacterial isolates (Carrim et al, 2006;Castro et al, 2014). Fungaro and Maccheroni (2002) suggested that EI greater than 1.0 are a reliable indicator for the presence of enzymes excreted by microorganisms, while EI ≥ 2.0 is considered good indicator for potential enzyme production by a bacterium (Lealem and Gashe, 1994).…”
