Isolation and Identification of Acid- and Bile-Tolerant Lactobacillus salivarius subsp. salivarius from Human Faeces
Hyoung Churl Bae, Seong Hyun Choi, Myoung Soo Nam
Abstract
This study was conducted to isolate lactobacilli having characteristics to be used as health adjuncts with fermented milk products. Acid tolerant strains were selected in Lactobacilli MRS broth adjusted to pH 4.0 from human faeces. Bile tolerant strains were examined in Lactobacilli MRS broth in which 1.0% bile salt was added. Microhemagglutination tests using swine erythrocytes were performed to select lactobacilli having adherence properties to survive in the intestinal tract. By examination of these characteristics the strain Nam 27, which was isolated from adult faeces, was selected and identified as Lactobacillus salivarius subsp. salivarius based on carbohydrate fermentation and 16S rDNA sequencing.
Keywords: Acid-; Bile-tolerant; Microhemagglutination; Probiotic; Lactobacillus salivarius
