Abstract:

It is obviously essential to find new compounds that possess industrial and medicinal importance and potential to improve the lifestyle of human population. Bioprospecting these compounds from natural resources has additional benefits since they are less toxic as well as biocompatible. In this study, Brevibacillus brevis was isolated from soil and its enzymes production, antibacterial activity and anticancer activity were assessed. The organism was found to be a promising source of amylase enzymes, antibacterial as well as anticancer compounds.

Keywords: Anticancer, amylase, antibacterial, bioprospecting, enzyme production.
