Abstract

Nineteen strains of thermotolerant Gram-positive bacteria were isolated from three natural hot springs of Orissa. The isolates were identified as Bacillus species. They grew at temperatures up to 75°C and over a broad range of pH. The isolates had a variety of enzyme activities (amylase, protease, β-lactamase, lipase, glutaminase and DNase), many of them active even at temperatures of 50-60°C.
