Title
Application of statistical experimental design for optimization of keratinases production by Bacillus pumilus A1 grown on chicken feather and some biochemical properties
Abstract

A new keratinolytic enzyme-producing bacterium was isolated from slaughter house polluted water and identified as Bacillus pumilus A1. Medium composition and culture conditions for the keratinases production by B. pumilus A1 were optimized using two statistical methods: Plackett–Burman design applied to find the key ingredients and conditions for the best yield of enzyme production and central composite design used to optimize the concentration of the five significant variables: feathers meal, soy peptone, NaCl, KCl, and KH2PO4. The medium optimization resulted in a 3.4-fold increase in keratinase production (87.73 U/ml) compared to that of the initial medium (25.9 U/ml). The zymography analysis shows the presence of at least five keratinolytic enzymes. The keratinolytic activity of the extracellular proteinases was examined by incubation with non-autoclaved chicken feathers. Complete solubilisation of whole feathers was observed after a 6-h incubation at temperatures ranging from 45 °C to 60 °C. The crude enzyme exhibited maximal activity at 60 °C and pH 8.5 or 55 °C and pH 9.0 using casein or keratin as substrates, respectively.
