The strain OK-63 isolated from katsuobushi was cultured on wheat bran medium and the isolate was morphologically identified as an Aspergillus niger group and showed maximum pretense activity and multiplication after 6 days of cultivation. Protease was purified by ammonium sulfate fractionation. Sephadex G-100 gel filtration and DEAE-cellulose column chromatography. The purified enzyme showed single band by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and the purity was 150 times higer than crude enzyme. The recovery of enzyme activity was found to be 45%.
