Abstract: The production of protease from Bacillus licheniformis LBA 46 was studied in a 6 L reactor using the experimental design tool. The higher protease production was obtained in the exponential phase of growth reaching maximum activity (~3,000 U/mL) after 48 h of fermentation at 30 ºC and 300 rpm in a culture medium made of agroindustrial by-products. In the thermostability study, the semi-purified enzyme retained about 78% of the initial activity after 120 min at 50 ºC. The protease was purified 3.33 times by amm…
