PRODUCTION OF EXTRACELLULAR ENDO-Β-GLUCANASE OF NEUROSPORA SP BY SOLID SUBSTRATE FERMENTATION

PRODUCTION OF EXTRACELLULAR ENDO-Β-GLUCANASE OF NEUROSPORA SP BY SOLID SUBSTRATE FERMENTATION ABSTRACT An endo-β-1, 4-glucanase (EC. 3.2.1.4) from a Neurospora sp isolated from a mouldy corn cob was produced in a solid substrate fermentation (SSF) system of 30.2% moisture level.  The enzyme was optimally produced in 48h at an initial culture pH of 6.0 in …

CULTURAL CONDITIONS AFFECTING ANTIBIOTIC PRODUCTION BY STREPTOMYCES SPECIES

CULTURAL CONDITIONS AFFECTING ANTIBIOTIC PRODUCTION BY STREPTOMYCES SPECIES ABSTRACT A total of 106 actinomycetes isolated from the rhizosphere of plants in abbatoir and refuse dumps in Awka and Onitsha were investigated for the production of antimicrobial substances. Five of them were found to show antimicrobial activity against Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria as well …
