Newly isolated Aspergillus protuberus was used for cellulase production by submerged fermentation (SmF) in a laboratory scale was compared. The production of filter paperase (FPase), carboxymethyl cellulose (CMCase), β-glucosidase were monitored at alternate intervals for 10 days. Optimization of parameters such as inducers, carbon sources was performed for the maximal production of cellulase. Among inducers and carbon sources tested in the present study, cellulose as the best inducer and lactose found to be best carbon source for FPase and CMCase whereas β-glucosidase and protein content maltose and fructose were the best carbon sources of A. protuberus in SmF.

Key words: Submerged fermentation, Filter paperase, Carboxymethyl cellulase, β-glucosidase, Aspergillus protuberus.
