The aim of this work was to optimize the process parameters through the statistical approach for the production of alpha amylase by Bacillus sp. in submerged fermentation (SMF). Initially critical physical and chemical process parameters influencing the enzyme production were identified by Plackett-Burman method (eleven variables, seven nutritional...

Aims: Present study was done with the aim of isolation of efficient amylase producing bacterial isolates from soil. Amylase enzyme production, purification, SDS-PAGE and characterization of different important parameters as pH, temperature, substrate concentration etc. was done for obtaining maximum enzyme activity. Study Design: An experimental st...

Naphthalene is a simple polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) regarded as a common environmental pollutant. A total number of 16 bacterial isolates obtained from various petroleum contaminated sites of Gwalior (MP), India were screened for their naphthalene degradation potential. Enrichment method was used for the isolation of bacteria by amending...
