In an attempt to isolate a good probiotic strain for therapeutic applications, we have screened several isolates having probiotic attributes. The essential probiotic characters such as lactic acid production, antimicrobial activity, acid and bile tolerance, vitamin B<sub>12</sub> production and antibiotic resistance pattern were considered as parameters for screening of probiotic bacteria from its natural habitats. Considering the said probiotic properties the strain EIPW5A was selected for the present study. The organism was identified as <em>Lactobacillus fermentum</em> based on its morphological, biochemical, physiological characters and 16S rRNA gene sequencing results.</p> Dipanwita Bhattacharjee , Barun Bhattacharyya Copyright (c) 2021 Bacterial Empire Fri, 30 Apr 2021 00:00:00 +0200
