Abstract

SUMMARY: The collagenolytic activity of 110 aerobic halophilic and halotolerant bacterial strains isolated from cured hides was determined. At 2.34% (w/v) NaCl, 10% of the bacterial strains could denature purified collagen. Collagenolytic activity was not detected at 7% (w/v) NaCl. Three of the collagenolytic strains were identified as spp. and eight as spp. Nine of these eleven bacteria were also gelatinolytic. Australian hides which produce decay-free leather lacked collagenolytic bacteria.
