Effect of physicochemical parameters on the polygalacturonase of an Aspergillus sojae mutant using wheat bran, an agro-industrial waste, via solid-state fermentation
BACKGROUND: Polygalacturonases (PGs) are valuable enzymes of the food industry; therefore it is of great importance to discover new and GRAS PG-producing microbial strains. In this study, PG enzyme produced from a high PG ...
Dilute-acid hydrolysis of apple, orange, apricot and peach pomaces as potential candidates for bioethanol production
(American Scientific Publishers, 2013-07)
Chemical composition of four selected fruit pomaces (agro-industrial wastes) was evaluated. The effect of temperature, time, acid concentration and solid:liquid (S:L) ratio on dilute-acid hydrolysis of selected pomaces ...
Valorization of wheat bran for the production of polygalacturonase in SSF of Aspergillus sojae
Wheat bran, among various agro industrial by products, screened for the production of polygalacturonase (PG) in solid-state fermentation of Aspergillus sojae mutant strain, was found to be the most suitable substrate without ...
Bioconversion of wheat bran for polygalacturonase production by Aspergillus sojae in tray type solid-state fermentation
Wheat bran was tested as the solid substrate for the tray-type solid-state fermentation (SSF) production of polygalacturonase (PG) enzyme by A. sojae mutant strain - a high-PG activity producer. PG production of A. sojae ...
Evaluation of orange peel, an industrial waste, for the production of Aspergillus sojae polygalacturonase considering both morphology and rheology effects
Orange peel is an agroindustrial waste rich in pectin and known to be an inducer for pectinase production. The use of this low-cost substrate for the production of an industrially important enzyme, polygalacturonase (PG), ...
Optimization of the process parameters for the utilization of orange peel to produce polygalacturonase by solid-state fermentation from an Aspergillus sojae mutant strain
The effect of orange peel concentration, HCl concentration, incubation time and temperature, and inoculum size on the spore count and activity of polygalacturonase (PG) enzyme produced from Aspergillus sojae M3 by solidstate ...
