Polygalacturonase produced by Streptomyces lydicus was purified to homogeneity by ultrafiltration and a combination of ion exchange and gel filtration chromatographic procedures. The purified enzyme was an exo-polygalacturonase with a molecular weight of 43 kDa. It was optimally active at 50 degrees C and pH 6.0. The enzyme was stable from pH 4.0 to 7.0 and(More)
Response surface methodology was employed for the optimization of different nutritional and physical parameters for the production of laccase by the filamentous bacteria Streptomyces psammoticus MTCC 7334 in submerged fermentation. Initial screening of production parameters was performed using a Plackett - Burman design and the variables with statistically(More)
Sediment samples were collected from different estuarine and marine areas along the West coast of India. Eighteen actinomycete cultures were isolated using starch casein agar and were screened for polygalacturonase activity by growing them on pectin-agar plates. Clear zones were visualized using 1% cetrimide. Out of the 18 strains screened ten cultures(More)
Response surface methodology (RSM) was employed to establish optimum conditions for enzymatic clarification of sapodilla juice. Polygalacturonase obtained from Streptomyces lydicus had been purified to homogeneity and was used for the treatment. The independent variables were temperature (30-45 degrees C), enzyme concentration (0.5-1.5 U), and treatment(More)
Various process parameters for the production of polygalacturonase by Streptomyces lydicus under solid-state fermentation were optimized. The optimum particle size of wheat bran for polygalacturonase production was in the range of 500-1000 μm. Initial moisture content of 70% was found to be the optimum for enzyme production. The most suitable inoculum size(More)
