Extraction and bio evaluation of extracellular pigment produced by four species of Penicillium sp


Author(s): Atmajaelina Mishra, Abhijit Sahoo and Nibha Gupta

Abstract: The present study was carried out on 4nos. of pigment-producing fungi for their enability to produce pigments in different media and antimicrobial activity. To this effect, the fungi were mass cultured and treated for solvent extraction and partial purification through column chromatography. The different extracts were collected and treated against 2 nos. of bacterial strain (Gram–ve Bacterial strain -I and Gram–ve Bacterial strain-II) and 2nos. of fungi Aspergillus sp. and Penicillium sp. Data recorded on bioactivity against fungi and bacteria exhibited the importance of pigments, and their solubility in methanol and ethanol. Some water-soluble pigments having antibacterial activity were observed in Penicillium sp.-4 also. Results obtained through their preliminary study exhibited the influence of pigments as a bioactive agent which may be exploited as food preservatives in future.
