Fig. 1.

Optimization of IPTG concentration for the maximal production of recombinant cellulase. The data on X-axis shows the IPTG concentration (mM) whereas on Y-axis shows the relative activity (%).

Coomassie Brilliant Blue R-250 Stained SDS-PAGE Gel Showing effect of incubation temperature on the production of recombinant cellulase (39 kDa): Lane L, protein ladder (Precision Plus Protein Ladder, Bio RAD, USA); Lane 1, soluble fraction after lysis of cells having pET28a without insert as negative control; Lane 2-6, Soluble part after lysis of cells having pET28a with cellulase gene with post induction period of 1–5 h at 37°C; Lane 7, soluble part after lysis of cells having pET28a with cellulase gene with post induction period of 22 h at 20°C; Lane 8, soluble part after lysis of cells having pET28a with cellulase gene with post induction period of 22 h at 25°C.

Fig. 3.

Effect of post induction incubation time on recombinant cellulase production. Experiment was conducted at 25°C. The data on X-axis shows the post induction incubation time (h) and Y-axis shows the relative activity (%).

Fig. 4.

Optimization of pH for the maximal production of recombinant cellulase. The cellulase production was analyzed in 50 mM of each of sodium acetate buffer (3-5), sodium phosphate buffer (5-7) and Tris HCl buffer (7-9). The data on X-axis indicates the buffer pH values while on Y-axis show relative activity (%).
