ABSTRACT:
Actinomycetes have an important role in the Industrial enzymes, Antibiotics, vitamins and organic acids. We have isolated 114 actinomycetes strains from Chennai coastal region by using starch casein agar plate method. Out of these 114 actinomycetes strains, 13 actinomycetes strains showed amylase activity by starch agar plate method and 12 strains showed cellulase activity by cellulase agar plate method, which was indicated by clear zone of dark blue color formation for amylase activity and dark yellow color formation for cellulase activity. Based on the maximum amylase and cellulase producing strains MB23 and BN08 was found to be a potential strains for further investigation.
