PROFILE OF GROWTH AND THE Î‘-AMYLASE PRODUCTION FROM VARIOUS BACILLUS SPECIES
AbstractIn the present research work,Â three bacteria Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus licheniformis, and Lactobacillus acidophilus Â were subjected to study their growth profile and alpha amylase production from them. Nutrient agar and nutrient broth medium were used for their growth. In the nutrient broth, it was found that these bacteria were able to produce Î±-amylase. Production of Î±-amylase from these bacteria were studied through Iodine assay and DNSA. It was investigated that DNSA technique is better than Iodine assay.Key words: Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus licheniformis, Lactobacillus acidophilus, and the alpha amylase.
