Filamentous fungi, Aspergillus oryzae MDU-4 was biochemically selected among different species of Aspergillus and Trichoderma, for xylanase production. The enzyme activity and specific activity of partially purified xylanase from A. oryzae MDU-4 was 7452 IU/ml and 13,549 IU/g, respectively. Temperature and pH optima for xylanase were found to be 60°C and 6.0, respectively. The reaction kinetics of xylanase was found to be Km (3.33 mg/ml) and Vmax (18,182 μmol/mg). The implementation of ozone… CONTINUE READING
