ABSTRACT:
Cow urine has been used as an antimicrobial agent from time immemorial. The present study was carried out to explore the presence of cellulase producing bacteria from cow urine thus making it a cheaper substrate for the large-scale production of enzymes. Cellulase producing Pseudomonas aeroginosa was isolated and characterized using biochemical and molecular characterization. There were significant levels of cellulase in the urine sample. The presence of the cellulase enzyme might be a reason for the antifungal activity of cow urine. The antibacterial activity of the urine sample showed more inhibition with respect to Staphylococcus aureus when compared to Klebsiellapneumonia and Escherichia coli.
