The aim of the present study was to identification and selection of lactic acid bacteria resistance to acid and bile salt isolated from naturally fermented corn silage. Based on 16S rDNA gene sequence analysis, they were identified as Lactobacillus plantarum R1, Lactobacillus plantarum R2, Lactobacillus plantarum R3 and Weissella paramesenteroides ZH1. Growth curve, acid production rate, acid and bile salt tolerance of strains were determined. Isolates were cultured for 12h, and acid-production rate is significantly higher than other strains. In the silage fermentation process, isolates can be used as start strains. R1, R2, R3 have strong acid resistance, their relative OD600nm values were 53.06%, 55.14%, 57.90%, respectively. ZH1 have no acid resistance (6.33%). At 0.03% (w/v) concentration of bile salt for 16h, isolates R1, R2, R3, ZH1 were resistant to bile salt and maintained the high population level, their relative OD600nm values were 88.30%, 87.32%, 82.14%, 59.74%, respectively. At 0.06% (w/v) concentration of bile salt, the relative OD600nm values of isolates were 84.91%, 70.47%, 68.61%, 19.87%, respectively. The results show that R1, R2, R3 exhibited resistance to low pH and tolerance to high concentrations of bile salts, and they could be used as silage additives.
