To examine tThe optimal conditions of cultivation for Cladosporium cladosporioides to produce and partially purify pectin methylesterase (PME) and polygalacturonase (PG) were examined under laboratory conditions . Activities of PME and PG were evaluated after 10, 15 and 20 days of incubation at 28°C in rice solid medium. Enzyme extraction was carried out by(More)
Coffee is one of the most important agricultural products in Brazil. More than 50 % of the coffee fruit is not used for the production of commercial green coffee and is therefore discarded, usually ending up in the environment. The goal of this work was to select an efficient process for obtaining coffee pulp extract and to evaluate the use of this extract(More)
