Description: The mercury is a contaminant in gold mining in the city of Poconé. This heavy metal is a toxic in different organisms and affect the human by bioaccumulation process causing a serie of cronic diseases. Mercury can be easily absorbed by plants and be accumulated in the human body through the food chain. The hypothesis is microorganism that is in association with plants, that survive in contaminated areas with mercury, provide greater resistance to contaminant and possibly an increased frequency of colonization. In this way, the aim of this study was to isolate endophytic bacterium that exhibit resistance to mercury.
