Abstract: Actinomycetes (35 strains), isolated from the gut of estuarine finfish Mugil cephalus collected from the Vellar estuary, were examined for cellulase activity. Strain CL-30, tentatively identified as Streptomyces actuosus, showed maximum cellulase activity at: pH 7, temperature 35°C, NaCl concentration 1-2%, carbon source sucrose and without addition of any amino acids. Molecular weight of cellulase determined by SDS-PAGE was 110 kDa. The study indicates the scope for the use of S. actuosus as an ideal organism for the industrial production of extracellular cellulase enzyme.
