Lipolytic enzyme production of 150 isolated strains from samples of Lake Bogoria (Kenya) was examined. Among these, fifteen isolates were selected on the basis of their lipolytic activities and subjected to morphological and 16S rRNA gene sequencing analyses for their identification. All the microorganisms have been selected under culture conditions with pH ranges between 7–10 and temperatures of 37–55 °C. Most of them showed optimal growth at 37 °C and tolerated salinity up to 10% (w/v). Ten… CONTINUE READING
