Botulism can be controlled by proper home canning techniques, preventing endospore germination by refrigeration or establishing an acidic environment, or destroying the toxin by heating to at least 80[degrees]C for at least 20 minutes.
In order to observe the vegetative cells under microscope 18 h grown cultures were used while to observe endospores 72 h old cultures were used.

(4) Once inhaled, the arthroconidia enlarge to become round, double-walled spherules ranging in size from 20100 microns in diameter and containing up to thousands of endospore offspring.
On anaerobic isolation, a total of 13 bacterial isolates characterized by Gram positive, rod shaped bearing sub-terminal oval endospore, showed double hemolysis on blood agar with DNase and lecithinase activities were identified as C.
Isolates of rhizobacteria, isolated from the rhizosphere of healthy brinjal plants were identified based upon their colony characters, microscopic characteristics (Gram, 1884) and biochemical characters viz., starch hydrolysis (Iverson and Millis, 1974), catalase test (Schaad, 1992), oxidase test (Gordon and McLeod, 1928), spirit blue Agar, lipid hydrolysis (Cowan, 1974), levan production (Lelliot and Stead, 1987), casein hydrolysis (Kunz and Lonnerdal, 1990), arginine hydrolysis (Lelliot and Stead, 1987), gelatinase (Blazevic and Ederer, 1975), pectinase activity (Fogarty and Kelly, 1983), protease activity (Vieira, 1999) and endospore formation.

The purpose of this study was to find the best and fastest heat shock conditions that trigger the breakdown of endospore dormancy of Bacillus and give a higher luminescence signal.
The two novel Bacillus species described Bacillus lonarensis 25[nlg.sup.T] and Bacillus caseinilyticus [SP.sup.T] were Gram-stain-positive, terminal endospore forming, motile rods (Sultanpuram et al., 2015b; Sultanpuram et al., 2015c).
