L-Asparaginase fits to a cluster of homologous amidohydrolases which catalyses the hydrolysis of aminoacid L-asparagine to L-aspartate and ammonia. The present study deals with isolation of L-Asparaginase enzyme producing bacterial strains, through serial diluting the soil samples from different places of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh states, India. L-asparaginase activity was detected on the basis of formation of pink colour around the colony. A total of 132 colonies were screened and isolated from all the samples. Based on the zone of diameter it can be concluded as good L-asparaginase producers and poor L-asparaginase producers. This experiment is mainly to isolate L-asparaginase producing microbial strains collected from various soil samples.

Keywords: L-asparaginase, Soil samples, biochemical characterization, microbial strains
