Microbial enzymes of extremophilic origin serve as a vital source of stable industrial enzymes. The present study focused on overproduction of a thermoalkalophilic lipase produced by Bacillus atrophaeus FSHM2 through UV-induced random mutagenesis (5-45 min exposure to UV light) and factorial experimental design augmented to response surface methodology. Firstly, a UV-induced mutant (designated as UV-45) was developed after the exposure of wild strain to UV irradiation for 45 min which was able to secrete 3484. Read More
