Isolation, Identification, Characterisation Of Bacterial Species From Keratinase Producing Microorganism

R. Manju

Abstract :

Bacterial keratinase are of particular interest, because of their action on insoluble keratin substrate & its oad range of protein substrate. These enzyme have been studied for dehairing processes in the leather industry and hydrolysis of feather keratin, it’s a by–product generated in huge amount by the poultry industry. Discarded feather meal through thermal processing resulting in a low nutritional value product. Feather hydrolysate produced by bacterial keratinase has been used as additives for animal feed. In addition keratin hydrolysate have potential use as organic fertilizer production of edible films .Cultivation condition are essential in successful production of an enzyme and optimization of parameter such as pH,temperature and media composition is important in developing the cultivation process. The work was designated with the few objectives include the screen for extracellular keratinase with bacterial species from poultry waste, characterization of the enzyme, view the substrate in SEM
