Exocellular proteases of Malbranchea gypsea and their role in keratin deterioration

  title={Exocellular proteases of Malbranchea gypsea and their role in keratin deterioration},
  author={Chandra Jeet Singh},
Malbranchea gypsea IMI 338168 isolated from the soils of Keoladeo National Park, Bharatpur was studied for its ability to produce exocellular proteases on glucose – gelatin medium at pH 7; 28°C. The fungus was observed to be a potent producer of such enzymes. Protease production was optimal at 15 days of incubation. Asparagine was repressive to protease expression. No relationship existed between the amount of enzyme production and increase in biomass. Exogenous sugars suppressed enzyme… CONTINUE READING
