dc.description.abstract Lignocellulosic biomass is a renewable, inexpensive, and abundant resource with high potential for biofuel production to implement the sustainable energy worldwide. An important key of biofuel production is the hydrolysis of lignocellulosic biomass to fermentable sugars. Screening for a novel cellulase, as a biocatalyst, is challenge for development of biofuel production to be the economic and environmental friendly process. Natural environment is an important source to find an efficient cellulase producing bacteria. Previously, Bacillus subtilis strain W48 was screened and isolated from rainforest park at Assumption University, Bangkok, Thailand. In this study, we focused on the purification and characterization of cellulase enzyme produced by B. subtilis strain W48. The crude cellulase enzyme was collected by culture grown at 45°C in carboxy-methyl-cellulose (CMC) media. Then, it is concentrated by ammonium sulfate precipitation and fractionated by using size exclusion chromatography using sephacryl S- 100 HR column. In this study, the fractions that has highest CMCase activity (0.017 mg/ml), as endoglucanase, and FPase activity (0.013 mg/ml), exoglucanase, are fraction no. 13 and 11, respectively. en_US
