Production of Cellulose I Microfibrils from Rhizobium sp. and its Wound Healing Activity on Mice

K. Parthiban, S. Manikandan and S. Ganesapandian

Bacterial cellulose essentially a high value special chemical with specific application and usage. Some is produced commercially as a source of highly pure polymer so called cellulose I. Current uses of bacterial cellulose are slowly gaining publicity with applications ranging from food additives and paper binding agents. The bacterial cellulose also used as temporary skin substitute. Modern medical biotechnology has accepted artificial skin as valid prospect. It has successfully applied by dermatologist and plastic surgeons. This can applied for human second and third degree skin burn, skin graft, face peeling, infectious dermolysis, trophic venous and chronic ulcers. The current study also aims to use the bacterial cellulose for the healing of wounds with slight alterations. Generally cellulose from Acetobacter xylenum was used for wound healing, but in this study cellulose from Rhizobium sp. was used. The bacterial cellulose is modified by mixing with alginate and examined their wound healing activity in experimental mice.
