Abstract

A strain (MPUAT-2), isolated from coconut hull and identified as Aspergillus foetidus MTCC 10559, was used for pectinase production. Optimum pectinase production was obtained at pH 8.0 and temperature 35?C under static conditions in submerged fermentation after 5 days of incubation. Orange peel, a by-product of fruit industry, was used as a sole carbon source (3% w/v) to produce high pectinase, thus making the process cost effective. The culture filtrate was analyzed for pectin methyl esterase (PME) and endo-polygalacturonase (endo-PG) enzymes. The enzymes, PME and endo-PG were purified using ammonium sulphate precipitation and molecular exclusion chromatography (Sephadex G-75) with corresponding recovery of 39.3 and 44.3%. The partially purified enzymes were also characterized for their kinetic properties. ??
