Author : Tanupriya Ojha, Kantishree De, Anjulata Vishwakarma

Fifteen actinomycetes strains were isolated from cow dung and manure sample of Jabalpur (M.P.) India. The activity of amylase and lipase were determined by DNS assay and titrimetric assay method. Among all the isolates maximum activities were exhibited from the strain CD12 with 390 g/ml and 560 U/ml and CD15 were found to be 290 g/ml and 620 U/ml, respectively. Based on the morphological and biochemical characteristics the potent strains were identified as the genus Streptomycetes.
