A simple procedure for the extraction of the lipolytic activity from rice bran has been developed. Various conditions of extraction have been optimized so as to obtain maximum yield of the lipase. It was found that high enzyme activity could be obtained by first defatting the rice bran to remove the lipid component. This was followed by five cycles of aqueous extraction (potassium phosphate buffer, 50 mM and pH 7, containing 0.5 mM of CaCl2). The stability of the rice bran lipase under storage and operative conditions was investigated. Further, the influence of glycerol as a stabilizer has been assessed. It was found that further purification using micro- and ultrafiltration yielded an enzyme preparation with higher activity and specific activity and better stability.
