Assessment of anti-microbial activity of chitin, chitosan and shrimp shell of Litopenaeus vannamei from bhimavaram farms, west Godavari district, Andhra Pradesh


Author(s): Nageswararao PV and Babu DE

Abstract: Chitin and chitosan are valuable marine biopolymers, which is an abundant by-product of the shrimp processing industry. Chitosan is an amino polysaccharide prepared by processing shrimp waste (Shell) which involves partial deacetylation of chitin. The chitin and chitosan were isolated from shrimp exoskeleton. The Extracted chitosan have antimicrobial properties were determined by employing several microbial organisms like Escherichia coli, Bacillus cereus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus. The current study demonstrates the extracted chitosan exhibit potent anti-microbial activity.
