A collagenase from Pseudomonas sp. was purified upto 13-fold with a yield of 3.6% using hydrophobic interaction chromatography. Molecular weight of 34kDa collagenase was identified using sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis method. Gelatin and collagen substrates were used in the characterization of purified collagenase. The optimum temperature and pH were 45 °C, pH 7.5 for gelatin and 50 °C, pH 8.5 for collagen respectively. The collagenase activity was highly inhibited by

However, Ca2+ (1mM) and PEG (1mM) increased the enzyme activity. The Pseudomonas based collagenase have the ability to hydrolyse protein substrates. The K m and V max values for the purified collagenase were found to be 1.65mg/mL and 2.12U/mL with collagen substrate while for gelatin substrate values were 6.60mg/mL and 6.58U/mL, respectively.
