Lipase and esterase formation by psychrophilic and mesophilic Acinetobacter species.


Acinetobacter O16, a psychrophilic species, produced extracellular lipase (measured by hydrolysis of olive oil, tributyrin, or beta-naphthyl laurate) when grown on a complex medium (peptone plus yeast extract). Most lipase was produced during the logarithmic phase of growth. Very little cell-bound lipase was formed. These cells also produced an esterase… (More)
