Production of Extracellular Protease by Streptomyces albidoflavus
K.J.P. Narayana and M. Vijayalakshmi

Production of protease by Streptomyces albidoflavus isolated from laterite soil was studied under submerged fermentation. The strain started protease production after 24 h of incubation and maximum level of enzyme production was found with 72 h old culture. Attempts were made to optimize the cultural conditions for getting high yields of enzyme. The optimum levels of pH and temperature for enzyme production were 7.0 and 35°C respectively. Among carbon sources, maltose (1%) supported maximum production of protease followed by trehalose, glycerol, starch and glucose. High yield of protease was recorded in the medium supplemented with peptone (0.75%) followed by beef extract, casein, yeast extract, tryptone and NaNO3.
