The present work was carried out to produce pectin lyase and cellulase production form the isolated fungi. The use of microorganisms for the production of enzymes offers a promising approach for its large scale production and as a possible food supplement or in pharmaceutical industry. The pectin lyase and cellulase producing Aspergillus niger was isolated from soil and characterized by staining procedures and partial purification. From the present study, the result showed that pectin lyase and cellulase producing fungi can grow at optimized condition. Thereby, partial purification of pectin lyase and cellulase enzyme was done. The Aspergillus niger showed a potential to convert pectin lyase and cellulase into reducing sugars which could be readily used in many applications such as animal foods and a feed stock for production of valuable organic compounds.
