Résumé partiel
Nature has provided the planet earth with a variety of beneficial organisms. newlineSoil is considered as a well-known source for the growth of microorganisms and newlinekeratinophilic microflora (fungi and bacteria) are the nature s gifts and the biggest newlinegroup of the organisms which have the capability to degrade the keratinous waste. newlineBeing the second populated country, the huge amount of keratinous waste is newlinegenerated in India. Keratinous waste are considered as the environmental pollutants newlineand produced mostly from the poultry farms, slaughterhouses and leather industries. newlineThe keratinous waste are dumped, buried, used for landfilling or incinerated and newlinethese all action increases the threats of environmental hazards, pollution, negatively newlineinfluence the public health and increase greenhouse gases concentration. The newlinekeratin-degradation ability of keratinophilic microflora has been credited with the newlineproduction of the microbial keratinase enzyme and biodegradation takes place newline(enzymatic degradation). Keratinase is the industrially significant enzyme which newlineoffers bioconversion of keratinous waste, utilization as animal feed supplements, newlinedehairing agents in tannery in eco-friendly way from the leather, detergent and newlinetextile industries. newlineIn the present study, the keratinophilic microflora was isolated from semi newlinearid region of Rajasthan, India. This research have reported the successful isolation newlineof keratinophilic microflora, molecular characterization, screening of keratinolytic newlineactivity, nutritional and physiological, estimation of keratin degradation, keratinase newlineenzyme activity and SDS-PAGE of keratinophilic fungi and keratinophilic bacteria. newline161 isolates of keratinophilic fungi and 36 isolates of keratinophilic bacteria have newlinebeen isolated from the soil of Rajasthan.
