Kinetics of the solid state fermentation of sugarcane bagasse by Thermoascus aurantiacus for the production of xylanase

Abstract

Xylanase was produced by solid-state fermentation using Thermoascus aurantiacus. Maximum production (500 U g−1 bagasse) was achieved on the sixth day of cultivation on solid sugarcane bagasse medium supplemented with 15% (v/w) rice bran extract. The fungal biomass, determined from its glucosamine content, reached 28 mg g−1 on the 8th day of cultivation. The… (More)
