Staphylocoocus vitulinus 2019Y, Heavy Metal, Inhibition, Well diffusion method. NCMR PUNE, 16s rRNA, ncbi gene bank.
In the present study we have observed the effect of heavy metals Viz. Zinc, Copper, Mercury, Magnesium, Cadmium, Lead, and Cobalt on Staphylococcus vitulinus 2019 Y bacterial stain isolated from carrica papaya (red lady verity) pulp. Staphylococcus vitulinus strains 2019 Y has 99.93% similarity with the Staphylococcus vitulinus, an endophytic bacteria which helps to promote the plant growth and increases the crop yield. In this study we have found that Staphylococcus vitulinus 2019 Y stain shows tolerance to Heavy metal Zinc and magnesium where as in case of mercury and copper it shows inhibition at different concentration which indicate that heavy metal pollution has adverse effect on plant growth promoting bacteria and make soil unfit for the growth and development of plants.
