Production, partial optimization and characterization of keratinase enzyme by Arthrobacter sp. NFH5 isolated from soil samples. Keratinase is an inducible enzyme that is synthesized only when an inducer ( keratin) appears in the environment. Keratinase can be produced by many kinds of. The three Bacillus spp. produced extracellular keratinases and of feather or feather meal on the production of keratinolytic enzymes by three.

Keratinase – Creative Enzymes

The keratinase enzyme production was carried out in the basal medium by using shaking flask. Readings were carried out in a spectrophotometer keratinas nm.

There were a total of positions in the final dataset. Keratinase production and biodegradation of some keratinous wastes by Alternaria tenuissima and Aspergillus nidulans. The synergetic effects of alternative methods in wool finishing, Fibres Text. The enzyme production was assayed by bacterium before optimizing the parameter of media components and prodiction condition. However, these methods cause decrease in the strength of the fibers and non-uniform properties on the wool surface [18].

Gelatin a and keratin b zymogram analysis of extracellular peptidases from B.

The isolates showing moderate to high keratinolytic activity were tested for the production of keratinase enzyme in basal media. An enzyme control was prepared by the addition of 1ml trichloroacetic before incubation. There was a 1.

Keratinase producing organisms were isolated by feather baiting technique on nutrient agar plates [ 13 ]. Materials and Methods Samples were collected from the feather dumps, poultry manure, and fresh poultry litter from local poultry farms in and around Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh, India. FK46 [ 10 ]. After the enzymatic treatment, smaller peptide and protein segments are removed, proteolytic reaction increases and hydrophilic surface occurs.

Although wool gave satisfactory performance for fermentation process as a substrate, it is not readily available when compared to glucose. Surface Observation For surface productikn, changes on the fabric surface were evaluated using scanning electron microscopy SEM. Therefore, whether keratinase inhibitors or keratinase monoclonal antibodies can inhibit the action of keratinase, weaken the invasiveness of dermatophytes, and achieve the purpose of treating skin fungal infections is an important research direction of keratinase and dermatophyte infection.

Tannery keratinaase are continuously using large amount of chemicals for dehairing in leather processing. Isolation of a novel feather-degrading bacterium and optimization of its cultural conditions for enzyme production.

Efficient Degradation of Feather by Keratinase Producing Bacillus sp.

Purification and characterization of a keratinolytic prodiction from Chryseobacterium sp. Microbial keratinases and their prospective applications: It is important for hydrolyzing hair, feather, and collagen in sewage system during waste water treatment.

It is interesting to note that the occurrence of peptidases was more prominent in the presence of feather meal. Processing textile fibers with enzymes: Azokeratin substrate was prepared by adopting the method of Riffel et al.


Samples were collected from the feather dumps, poultry manure, and fresh poultry litter from local poultry farms in and around Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh, India. Three different surface-active compounds were added to the fermentation medium in two different concentrations and the growth of microorganism and enzyme activity produciton monitored. Microorganism Isolate Streptomyces sp. Extracellular keratinase and peptidases were obtained after growth of the Bacillus sp.

Considering that the presence of keratinous substrates usually induces keratinase production, the main aim of the study was to compare the influence of feather or feather meal on the production of keratinolytic enzymes by three Bacillus spp. A number of keratinolytic microorganisms can produce keratinases E. Common proteolytic enzymes such as pepsin, trypsin and papain cannot cleave keratins due to their rigid structure.

Inhibition tests demonstrated that all peptidases including keratinases are serine peptidases Figure 6. However, in very few studies, keratinases were used to improve the pfoduction of wool fabrics in the textile industry [22]. All fermentation experiments were carried out in duplicate.

However, the use of feather waste as a dietary protein supplement for animal feedstuffs is only carried out on a limited basis, due to its poor digestibility [ 3 ]. Applications In agriculture, keratinase produced by microorganisms can degrade keratin into polypeptides and amino acids, which can be used to make organic fertilizers.
