The Presence of Metals and Antibiotics Resistant Bacteria in Arable Manure Soils

Title variants
Languages of publication
Heavy metals and antibiotics resistance are intense public interest owing to their pollution in the environment and potential deleterious effects on human health. A total of 15 isolates of Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus cereus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Escherichia coli (50 manure garden soils) were tested for their resistance against certain heavy metals and antibiotics. Minimum inhibitory concentrations of Pb²⁺, Co²⁺, Cu²⁺, and Zn²⁺ for each isolate were also determined. B. subtilis, B. cereus, P. aeruginosa and E. coli exhibited high tolerance to minimum inhibitory concentrations of 3,200 μg/ml for Pb²⁺, 400 μg/ml for Cu²⁺ and Co²⁺, and 100 μg/ml for Zn²⁺ in agar plates. All the isolates were highly resistant to lead and they showed 100% growth in 3,200 μg/ml concentration. It was observed that all isolates were resistant to a wide range of antibiotics namely clindamycin, ceftazidime, aztreonam and vancomycin.
