Abstract
Lignin is one of the main components of lignocellulose and is the most plentiful natural aromatic hetero-biopolymer. However, due to the recalcitrant characteristics of lignin, microbial degradation of lignin is difficult and complex. In this study, we report a lignin-degrading bacterial strain isolated form wood decaying soil. In order to screen lignin-degrading bacterial strains, we selected candidate isolates based on the bacterial growth in lignin-added agar plates. Among the twenty candidate bacterial isolates, the strain, designated Streptomyces sp. strain 1154 exhibited the gradual decrease of lignin contents in liquid lignin-YPG (yeast extract, peptone and glucose) medium. The degradation of lignin was evaluated by monitoring the decrease of absorbance at 280 nm, and the maximum degradation and decolorization rate of lignin was 66% and 81% respectively in five days at the modified ISP (International Streptomyces Project) medium 4.
