Protease Production from Polyextremophilic Bacteria

Extremophilic organisms which are capable of surviving in two different extreme environmental conditions simultaneously are known as polyextremophiles. These organisms are known to be potent producers of bioactive compounds namely enzymes such as proteases which are rapidly used in the growing industrial sector uses such as in the detergent industry, dairy industry, silver recovering, leather industry, etc. These polyextremophilic bacteria have not been explored much, only 2-5% of them are known, the rest remains to be discovered, thus we aim to isolate proteolytic enzymes from polyextremophiles since the isolated enzyme will be stable at more than one extreme condition, which would therefore be greatly employed in the industrial sector where these enzymes will be stable at different conditions simultaneously.

Keywords: Extremophilic, Polyextremophiles, Proteases, Industrial sector
