The aim of this paper is to determine the production of cellulase enzyme from fungal strain Aspergillusniger on labscale. Cellulase enzyme and various cellulosic product obtained from microorganisms have shown to have immense industrial potential by using to chemical cellulase as being traditionally used in industries such as a, food industry, textile industry, paper and pulp industry, biofuel production, brewing and agricultural industry etc. cellulase being broadly used for industrial purpose and the enzyme cellulase being an extremely complex system, research oriented work for its production has importance periodically. The availability of substrate for the production of this enzyme was abundant. The most abundant carbohydrate polymer in biosphere is cellulose, having an annual production that estimated to be over 7.5 1010tones. Cellulase is the inducible enzyme produced by various microorganisms like bacteria, fungi while there growth on carbon containing sources that is cellulose used as a substrate. As compare to bacteria; fungi was most suitable microbes for the enzyme production. .Filamentous fungi that is slender thread like structure of fungi is mostly preferred for cellulase enzyme production and it has good capacity to produced extracellular enzyme. The analysis of production of cellulase enzyme was done by Di-nitrosalycyclic acid (DNS) method .The present study aimed to screen fungi Aspergillus niger for the production of cellulase enzyme and further enzyme purification.
