Microbial proteases like Bacillus licheniformis alkaline protease
, Aspergillus oryze validase, Bacillus subtilis neutral protease produced peptides with antioxidant potential .
Production and biochemical characterization of an alkaline protease
from Aspergillus oryzae CH93.
Patke and his colleagues, Chaphalkar and his colleagues had reported protease activity in isolated Actinomycetes (40,41), Hiroshi Tsujib isolated an alkaline protease
from alkalophilic actinomycete, N.
reported this year that clove bud oil affects pseudomonal proteases (elastase A, elastase B, protease IV and alkaline protease
), attenuating significant viral mechanisms of this noted human disease agent while bolstering host immunomodulatory functions.
The culture positive for alkaline protease
was grown by 100 mL of synthetic medium containing (g/L) nutrient broth with glucose (5 g), peptone (7.5 g), NaCl (5 g), FeS[O.sub.4].7[H.sub.2]O(0.1 g), MgS[O.sub.4].7[H.sub.2]0(5 g) with the pH 10.0.
Most of the neutral and alkaline protease
that are commercial serine proteases are produced from bacteria of the genus Bacillus.
Alcalase [25-27], actinase , and alkaline protease
 were used to prepare the bioactive peptides and enzymatic hydrolysates (EHs) from SF/silkworm powder.
(2004) to produce extracellular alkaline protease
with maximum activity at pH 11 and 60 AdegC.
(11.) Coral G, Arikan B, Unaldi M, Guvenmez H (2003) Thermostable alkaline protease
produced by an Aspergillus niger strain.
presented the highest activities at pH 8.0 or 8.5 for all species, but R.
Naik, "Pigeon pea waste as a novel, inexpensive, substrate for production of a thermostable alkaline protease
from thermoalkalophilic Bacillus sp.
Among these commercially important enzymes are the protease enzymes: alkaline protease
possesses the property of a great stability when used in detergents and protease enzymes have found applications in bioindustries such as washing powders, food industry, leather processing, and pharmaceuticals and for studies in biology [11,12].
