Optimization of process parameters for the extracellular lipases production by bacteria is most important because they have a broad range of biotechnological applications. In the present study lipase production, carried out in shake flasks with minimal medium and investigated the influence of different culture conditions including environmental (i.e., pH and Temperature) and nutritional (i.e., Ammonium nitrate, Urea, Selenium and Nickel) factors on the production of lipase by newly isolated Pseudomonas aeruginosa KDP. Maximum enzyme production was found to be at pH 7.0 and temperature 45 °C. The concentration 0.25mg/l of ammonium nitrate and urea present culture produced maximum lipase is 21.05 U/ml and 15.68 U/ml respectively. The maximum lipase production by P. aeruginosa KDP was found to be at 40µm/L Se and 60µm/L Ni supplemented culture. The correlation analyses of all the experiments proved that the physicochemical parameters and the lipase production are interdependent.
