Cell growth and α-amylase production characteristics ofBacillus subtilis
- 72 Downloads
Growth, differential rate of α-amylase synthesis and production characteristics ofBacillus subtilis DP 1 (isolate from starch materials) in comparison with 10Bacillus strains were examined in batch fermentation. The effect of the carbon and nitrogen source was evaluated with regard to cell growth and enzyme production. The pH optimum of enzyme activity was 6.5 and temperature optimum 60°C.
