An alkali-tolerant bacterium producing the xylanase was isolated from soil and identified as Bacillus alcaiophilus. This strain, named B. alcalophilus AX2000, was able to grow and produce xylanase optimally at pH 10.5 and $37^{\circ}C$. The maximum xylanase production was obtained when 0.5%(w/v) birchwood xylan and 0.5%(w/v) polypeptone and yeast extract were used as carbon source and nitrogen source, respectively. The biosynthesis of xylanase was under the catabolite repression by glucose in the culture medium, and inhibited in the presence of high concentration of xylose. The maximum activity of xylanase was observed at pH 10.0 and $50^{\circ}C$ and the enzyme activity remained was over 80% at $60^{\circ}C$ and from pH 5.0 to 11.0.
