Abstract


Antibacterial substances from sea sediment were isolated from marine environment of Karrwar, west
coast of India and characterized. Out of the 21 isolates subjected to secondary screening, 10 isolates were active
against Bacillus subtilis, 12 against Staphylococcus aureus, 6 against Escherichia coli, 3 against Proteus vulgaris and
4 against Salmonella typhi. Metabolites in the broth extract of overnight grown Pseudomonas spp. No.7 proved
to have antimicrobial and cytotoxic against human lung carcinoma cell

Keywords


Marine Bacteria; antimicrobial activity; cytotoxic activity; human lung carcinoma cells
