Abstract

The objective of this research was to isolate and identify gelatinase-producing bacteria from several mangrove ecosystems in Indonesia. Soil samples were collected from seven coastal locations of mangrove ecosystem in 2017. The gelatinase-producing bacteria were screened by using screening and confirmation methods. The gelatinase-producing bacteria were further analyzed by using the 16s rDNA molecular method. Ten isolates were diagnosed to be gelatinase-producing bacteria, which belonged to three genera: Lysinibacilus sp, Enterobacter sp. and Proteus sp. The isolated bacteria can further be investigated for the possibility of gelatinase production.
