Abstract:

Proteolytic fungi was isolated from soil sample collected from nearby area of Acentric Biotech and Research Laboratory, Phase 7, Industrial area, Mohali, (Punjab)on potato dextrose agar media plate containing chicken feathers as cheap and local, protein substrate. The chicken feathers sample was collected from village butchery, phase 5, Mohali (Punjab).The fungi was inoculated in basal for the production of protease enzyme. The crude enzyme extract identified by Bradford protein assay method. The protease enzyme activity of Aspergillus niger was 58.33 m/dL for test sample and 29.37 m/dL for control. The maximum extracellular protease production was observed at 25 °C.
