Screening and mutagenesis of a novel Bacillus pumilus strain producing alkaline protease for dehairing.

AIMS To characterize and optimize a novel Bacillus pumilus strain isolated from biological waste which produces protease with excellent dehairing effect. This newly isolated strain could be utilized in the industrial leather dehairing process. METHODS AND RESULTS Bacterial strains secreting proteases were screened from biological wastes. Positive clones… CONTINUE READING
