The production of extra cellular lipase in submerged fermentation of Yarrowia lipolytica NCIM 3589 has been investigated. Several compounds have been added to the culture medium in order to assess their efficiency as inducers of lipase production. The effect of triglycerides (olive oil, sunflower oil and tributyrin) has been studied. The highest lipase activity was obtained with sunflower oil (2.5 U mL-1) in four days.
