     Abstract Studies of proteolytic enzymes in Nile tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus, L.) contribute to a better understanding and improve protein utilization in feed. The investigation of proteolytic enzymes from digestive organs (stomach, proximal intestine, distal intestine and liver) using two different sizes of tilapia (6.44 ± 0.86 g. and 31.67 ± 2.31 g.). The effect of different pH (2.0-13.0) and incubated temperature (30, 45, 60 and 75°C) on protease activities using crude enzyme extract was measured by the increase in cleavage of short chain polypeptide which used azocasein as a substrate. Protease was classified by specific inhibitors. The protease activity of all organs in both sizes was highest at pH 9.0 and 45 °C. In addition, small fish showed highest acidic protease activity at pH 3.0. The protease activity of proximal intestine, distal intestine from both sizes and small fish liver were strongly inhibited by PMSF, TLCK and SBT, the serine protease inhibitors specifically for trypsin. Except in the protease activity of liver from the large fish was inhibited by EDTA (carboxypeptidase inhibitor). Meanwhile, pepstatin A, pepsin inhibitor, inhibited the acid protease activity in stomach extracts from both fish sizes. Results suggested that the present of proteases were differed among digestive organs. Knowledge gained from this study provided important information for further protease digestibility and feed formulation.
