Abstract

Immobilization techniques provide a special microenvironment in which cells always have different behaviors compared with free cells. In the present work, the effect of Bacillus pumilis MTCC 2296 cells immobilized in various matrices; such as calcium alginate, polyacrylamide and agar-agar, for the production of alkaline protease, is studied. Calcium alginate was found to be an effective and suitable matrix for higher alkaline protease productivity (491 U/ml) compared to the other matrices studied.
