All the three strains were capable of producing enzymes like gelatinase, amylase, urease, citratase, catalase and oxidase other than cellulase.
The strain V1 have a positive character to the use of citrate, appear form blue colonies on medium KMK, reflecting the presence of citratase enzyme and the ability to use this precursor aromatic compound which is taken as an important criterion in the selection of species for technological interest, this was already demonstrated by [24, 38,39].The strainV1 were unable to produce acetoin from glucose, which corresponds to the characters of the two subspecies Leuconostoc mesenteroides subsp mesenteroides and Leuconostoc mesenteroides subsp dextranicum[32, 34].
Other Enterotube II assays such as carbohydrate fermentation (adonitol, arabinose, sorbitol, lactose, glucose, dulcitol), production of sulfidric acid, production of urease, citratase, and phenylalaline deaminase were performed.
It is capable of hydrolyzing arginine, esculine, hippurate and degrading citrate via the enzyme citratase. The isolate LAB001 can ferment several sources of carbon especially, glucose, lactose, amidon, arabinose, mannitol, ribose and trehalose, with production of a-Galactosidase, [beta]-Glucuronidase, [beta]-Galactosidase, Pyrrolidonylarlamidase, Leucine-amino-peptidase.
