Abstract

Three novel Arsenite oxidizing bacteria have been isolated from arsenic contaminated rivers from India. Samples were collected from the three districts of Uttar Pradesh (UP) viz., Ghaziabad, Moradabad and Gorakhpur Uttar Pradesh, India. All the three stains were observed as gram positive, aerobic, spore forming and rod shaped. The phylogentic analysis using 16S rDNA identification sequence showed that three isolates were belonged to the family of Bacillaceae and were closely related to Rummeliibacillus sp. (98%), Brevibacillus agri strain (88%) and Bacillus thuringiensis (99%). All the three strains are clearly distinguished from the related Bacillus species by its biochemical characteristics as well as the phylogentic relationship, therefore the three strains represent the novel sp. of the genus bacillus for which we proposed the names viz., Rummeliibacillus sp. AOBG-1, Brevibacillus sp. AOBMI-1 and Bacillus sp. AOB-GI-1 respectively. The GenBank accession numbers for the 16S rRNA gene sequence of the strains are KP295449, KP314033 and KP 308382.
