The alkaliphilic Bacillus halodurans strain PPKS-2 was shown to produce extracellular extreme alkaliphilic, halotolerent, detergent, and thermostable mannanase activity. The cultural conditions for the maximum enzyme production were optimized with respect to pH, temperature, NaCl, and inexpensive agro wastes as substrates. Mannanase production was enhanced(More)
A thermostable extracellular beta-mannanase from the culture supernatant of a fungus Aspergillus niger gr was purified to homogeneity. SDS-PAGE of the purified enzyme showed a single protein band of molecular mass 66 kDa. The beta- mannanase exhibited optimum catalytic activity at pH 5.5 and 55 degrees C. It was thermostable at 55 degrees C, and retained(More)
The aim of this work was to establish optimal conditions for the maximum production of endo-beta-1,4 mannanases using cheaper sources. Eight thermotolerant fungal strains were isolated from garden soil and compost samples collected in and around the Gulbarga University campus, India. Two strains were selected based on their ability to produce considerable(More)
Forty varieties of sorghum grown locally and four cereals were screened for inhibitory activity against human salivary amylase. Three varieties of sorghum (IS-22422, Nagi Monadi and Ngd Marnm) had maximum inhibitory activity of 124 units. Among the cereals rice had the lowest inhibitory activity. Amylase inhibitory activity was lost on germination and(More)
Simple, attractive and versatile technique, three-phase partitioning (TPP) was used to purify α-galactosidase from fermented media of Aspergillus oryzae. The various conditions required for attaining efficient purification of the α-galactosidase fractions were optimized. The addition of n-butanol, t-butanol, and isopropanol in the presence of ammonium(More)
The oligosaccharide content was determined in 12 different cultivars of black gram. The effect of various treatments such as soaking, cooking, and enzyme treatment on the raffinose family oligosaccharides of dry seeds and flour was studied. Ajugose, a higher oligosaccharide (DP 6) found in trace quantities in seeds, was shown in black gram by HPLC. The(More)
Comparisons were made for alpha-galactosidase production using red gram plant waste (RGPW) with wheat bran (WB) and other locally available substrates using the fungus Aspergillus oryzae under solid-state fermentation (SSF). RGPW proved to be potential substrate for alpha-galactosidase production as it gave higher enzyme titers (3.4 U/g) compared to WB (2.7(More)
An extracellular thermostable alpha-galactosidase producing Aspergillus terreus (GR) strain was isolated from soil sample using guar gum as sole source of carbon. It was purified to apparent homogeneity by acetone precipitation, gel filtration followed by DEAE-Sephacel chromatographic step. The purified enzyme showed a single band after sodium dodecyl(More)
Thermostable α-galactosidase from Aspergillus terreus GR was insolubilized using concanavalin A obtained from jack bean extract and in order to maintain the integrity of complex in the presence of its substrate or products, this complex was crosslinked with glutaraldehyde. Soluble α-galactosidase entrapped in calcium alginate retained 82% of enzyme activity(More)
A bacterial strain was isolated from dhal industry red gram waste and identified as Bacillus. A thermostable extracellular amylase was partially purified from the strain. Optimum temperature and pH for the enzyme were found to be 60 degrees C and 6.5, respectively. The maximum amylase production was achieved with maltose as carbon source. Among the nitrogen(More)
