These extracellular enzymes are synthesized by diverse groups of microorganisms including fungi yeasts and bacteria.
Isolate UB1 and AB1 showed good levels of extracellular enzyme secretion in in-vitro plate studies.
The genus Bacillus merits attention as the single most important source of extracellular enzymes and thus this genus has the potential to dominate the enzyme industry [15-17].
Extracellular enzymes produced by the cultivated mushroom Lentinus edodes during degradation of a lignocellulosic medium.
Culture broth was centrifuged at 10,000 rpm for 15 minutes at 4[degrees]C followed by incubation and the supernatant was used to estimate the extracellular enzyme activity.
There are many reports which suggest the involvment of G proteins, cAMP and MAP kinases in the extracellular enzyme secretion and coiling around the hyphae.

Variation in the stoichiometry of enzyme activities associated with nutrient acquisition can be explained by the resource allocation model for extracellular enzyme synthesis [47, 48] in which microorganisms will preferentially allocate their resources to enzymes for acquiring an element limiting their productivity.
