Optimization of protease and lipase production by Bacillus pumilus SG 2 isolated from an industrial effluent
This investigation was aimed at isolating a potent bacterial strain which can produce both protease and lipase. Effluents of meat processing industry, dairy industry, food processing industry and oil…
Antibacterial Activity of Fistulin: A Protease Inhibitor Purified from the Leaves of Cassia fistula
The antibacterial efficacy of a PPI present in the leaves of Cassia fistula was found to be very active against S. pneumonia, and its efficacy was comparable to the standard drug, streptomycin sulphate.
Characterization of Silver Nanoparticles Synthesized Using the Extract of the Leaves of Tridax procumbens
Concomitant production of protease and lipase by Bacillus Licheniformis VSG1: Production, purification and characterization
This study was aimed at producing protease and lipase simultaneously on a common medium by Bacillus licheniformis VSG1, which was isolated from a tannery effluent, and the response of the enzymes to inhibitors, additives and solvents was analysed.
In Vitro α-Amylase Inhibitory Activity of the Leaves of Thespesia populnea
This study shows that the leaves of T. populnea were effective in inhibiting α-amylase, thereby proving to be potential hyperglycemic agents.

The experimental molecular weight of SG2 lipase was nearly double that of its theoretical molecular weight, thus suggesting the existence of the functional lipase as a covalent dimer, thus rendering the lipase resistant to protease.
