Description

Lysinibacillus pakistanensis has been reported to be useful in biodegrading hexavalent chromium, a harmful carcinogenic waste produced by leather industries. It was previously shown to inhibit the growth of E. faecalis, E. coli, A. faecalis, and P. aeruginosa when grown competitively using a cross streak method. Organic extracts from Lysinibacillus pakistanensis showed inhibition towards S. epidermidis and E. aerogenes in subsequent bioassays using TLC–bioautography. Further work to separate the components in the extract mixture and isolate the antimicrobial compound using both column chromatography and TLC will be discussed.
