The activity of β-glucosidase (βG), total cellulase (FPase) and endoglucanase (CMCase), produced by Aspergillus japonicus URM5620, was studied on solid-state fermentation using castor bean meal as substrate. The effect of the substrate amount, initial moisture, pH, and temperature on cellulase production was studied using a full factorial design (24). The maximum βG, FPase, and CMCase activity was 88.3, 953.4, and 191.6 U/g dry substrate, respectively. The best enzyme activities for all three… CONTINUE READING
