Studies on screening of Bacillus sp. for Protease Production

  title={Studies on screening of Bacillus sp. for Protease Production},
  author={A. Rebekkah Shanthakumari and Dr. M. Boominathan},
Screening of bacteria and other organisms for protease production has gained momentum in recent times. Proteases are hydrolytic enzymes capable of degrading proteins into small peptides and amino acids for industrial applications. Proteases are widely used in food, pharmaceutical, leather, detergent industry and other industries. This review summarizes various aspects of proteases and their conditions of production. The enzymatic and physicochemical properties of alkaline proteases obtained… 

Isolation and characterization of protease producing bacteria from waste site of Rewa municipality, Madhya Pradesh (India)
