Likewise, inulinase enzyme producing thermophilic bacteria have great industrial interest because this enzyme is used to hydrolyse inulin for production of fuel ethanol (45).
The investigated strains were able to produce thermostable amylase, cellulase, protease, inulinase, asparaginase and lipase enzymes.
It can be observed that the best production of inulinase was obtained at lower concentrations of agave syrup (runs 2 and 7), while the increase of the concentration resulted in negative effects, with a significant reduction of enzyme production, independent of the nitrogen source concentrations.
The production of inulinase is described to suffer from catabolic repression at high substrate concentrations, and therefore, the highest production of this enzyme is usually observed at the end of the growth phase (Parekh & Margaritis, 1985; Jing, Zhengyu, & Augustine, 2003; Cazetta, Monti, & Contiero, 2010; Singh & Lotey, 2010).

Inulinase have been isolated from microorganisms including bacteria.
The human body lacks the enzyme inulinase needed to digest them, so these polymers remain inert in the digestive system.
