An alkalophilic bacterial isolate identified as Bacillus pantotheneticus, isolated from saline-alkali soils of Avadh region of UP, India, was studied for the production of alkaline protease. The mutant of the isolated species showed 44% improved production over the parent strain. Organic nitrogen sources supported better protease production than the inorganic sources. The production of alkaline protease was (242 U/ml) in the medium containing molasses, which was comparable with molasses and… CONTINUE READING
