Although lipases have been intensively studied, some aspects of enzyme production like substrate uptake, catabolite repression, and enzyme stability under long storage periods are seldom discussed in the literature. This work deals with the production of lipase by a new selected strain of Candida lipolytica. Concerning nutrition, it was observed that inorganic nitrogen sources were not as effective as peptone, and that oleic acid or triacylglycerides (TAG) were essential carbon sources… CONTINUE READING
