CELLULASE ACTIVITY OF A STRAIN OF BACILLUS SUBTILIS ISOLATED FROM TERMITE ANACANTHOTERMES TURKESTANICUS
Keywords:Anacanthotermes turkestanicus, cellulose, cellulase, endoglucanases, Bacillus subtilis
Termites are the most primitive insects. They play an important role in the degradation of cellulose materials in nature. Their main food is cellulose contained in wood, grass and tree leaves, so termites can cause economic damage, damaging wooden structures and woody species. Particular attention is paid to the activity of thermite cellulases. The purpose of the scientific research is to identify and study the cellulolytic enzymatic activity of bacteria isolated from local termites Anacanthotermes turkestanicus.
