Isolation and Characterization of Bifidobacteria from diverse ecosystems

Halima Aurass Bahloul, Hadadji Miloud, Mebrouk Kihal


Bifidobacteria represent the largest group of human intes nal bacteria. They have an important place in human health and represent the dominant group of micro ora. For this reason, they are key members of the human gut microbiota, particularly during the first one to two years following birth. The aim of this study was to test the sensibility of Bifidobacterium isolated from some strains at different concentrations of salinity and high concentration of bile as a criterion to select probiotic strains. Following the behavior of strains of Bifidobacteria isolated from different ecosystems was considered in order to develop the therapeu c aliment food . Samples from newborn infants aged 3 months, bee intestine, fermented commercial milk and yoghurt of bifidus containing Bifidobacteria was used and the isolated strains belonged to -breve and -longum species. The results of resisitance of our species of Bifidobacteria demonstrated a total inibition of croissance at 5.5% of NaCl but in 5% media of NaCl we observed a moderate croissance at di erent me of kinetics croissance .
