Abstract

In the present study, a total of 32 fungal organisms belonging to 3 different genera were isolated from various sources of which 4 (three Aspergillus sp. and one Mucor sp.) were found to be positive for lipase production. Rhodamine B rapid screening technique was used to determine the lipase activity. Mucor sp. was found to exhibit a maximum fluorescence zone at 350 nm. Among the various types of triglycerides used as the carbon source, sunflower oil was found to be the most effective in inducing lipase in Mucor sp. The lipase in Mucor sp. was found to be inducible, alkalophilic and thermostable.
