The under explored mangrove sediment of Bhitarkanika, a potent source for the isolation of new actinobacteria and were recognized as a source of novel antibiotics and anticancer agents having unusual structure and properties. In the present study twenty actinobacterial isolates were obtained and screened for L-asparaginase and L-glutaminase production. Only four isolates were found to exhibit the above activity. 16S rDNA analysis revealed one isolate i.e. DSOIIA as a new strain of Actinomycetales bacterium BkSoiiA bearing Genebank Accession number: KC573069 and positive for L-asparaginase and L-glutaminase production.
