Abstract

A novel marine bacterium was isolated from Pichavaram mangrove forest located near Chidambaram, Tamil Nadu and designated as MS-2-1. Morphological, cultural, physiological characteristics as well as 16S rRNA gene sequence based phylogenetic analysis confirmed taxonomic affiliation of MS 2 as Marinobacter aquaeolei. The optimum pH and temperature for maximum production of xylanase was observed at pH 8.0 and 30ºC.
