Streptomyces cyaneus SN32 was used in this study to produce extracellular xylanase, an important industrial enzyme used in pulp and paper industry. The enzyme was purified to homogeneity by ammonium sulfate precipitation followed by anion exchange chromatography using DEAE-Sepharose column, with 43.0% yield. The enzyme was found to be a monomer of 20.5 kDa(More)
AIMS The effect of in vivo enzymatic digestion (IVED), in vitro xylanase digestion (IVXD), metabolic analogues, surfactants and polyethylene glycol (PEG) on laccase production from Ganoderma sp. kk-02 was studied. METHODS AND RESULTS An acidic laccase producing Ganoderma sp. kk-02 produced 16.0 U ml(-1) and 365.0 U g(-1) of laccase, when grown under(More)
Response surface methodology employing central composite design (CCD) was used to optimize fermentation medium for the production of cellulase-free, alkaline xylanase from Streptomyces violaceoruber under submerged fermentation. The design was employed by selecting wheat bran, peptone, beef extract, incubation time and agitation as model factors. A(More)
Xylanase from Bacillus pumilus strain MK001 was immobilized on different matrices following varied immobilization methods. Entrapment using gelatin (GE) (40.0%), physical adsorption on chitin (CH) (35.0%), ionic binding with Q-sepharose (Q-S) (45.0%), and covalent binding with HP-20 beads (42.0%) showed the maximum xylanase immobilization efficiency. The(More)
The empirical models developed through two independent RSM (RSM-I, 2(3); RSM-II, 2(5)) in terms of effective operational factors of inoculum age, inoculum volume, wheat bran-to-moisture ratio (RSM-I) and contact time, extraction temperature, agitation, fermented bran-to-solvent ratio and SDS (RSM-II) were found adequate to describe the optimization of(More)
AIMS Investigation of waste pulps and soda pulp bleaching with xylanase (X) and laccase mediator system (LMS) alone and in conjunction (one after the other) (XLMS). METHODS AND RESULTS Soda and different grades of waste pulp fibres [used for making three-layered duplex sheets - top layer (TL), protective layer (PL) and bottom layer (BL)] when pretreated(More)
AIMS To investigate the effect of amino acids, vitamins and surfactants on polygalacturonase production from Bacillus sp. MG-cp-2 under submerged (SmF) and solid state fermentation (SSF). METHODS AND RESULTS Bacillus sp. MG-cp-2 was isolated from the outer covering of the seeds of Celastrus paniculatus. Out of the various surfactants, amino acids and(More)
