Worldwide many companies are venturing to invest and expand their business through microbial products of commercial importance. The immediate need is to search for microbial sources and to develop laboratory protocols for high potent and versatile microbes with unique traits of producing proteases. In recent years there has been a phenomenal increase in the use of alkaline proteases as industrial catalysts. These enzymes offer advantages over the use of conventional chemical catalysts for numerous reasons, for example they exhibit high catalytic activity, a high degree of substrate specificity, can be produced in large amounts and are economically viable. In recent years, tremendous use of proteases in industry has encouraged research in this area. Application of alkaline protease has increased used in the preparation of medicines, in food processing, detergent, leather and textile industries.
