Growth and concomitant production of an extracellular pectin lyase (PL) [poly(methoxylgalactosiduronate) endolyase; EC] were investigated in a group of 16 fungi grown in liquid medium containing pectin as a supplementary carbon source. Culture filtrates of both Penicillium italicum (CECT 2294) and P. expansum (CECT 2275) showed the highest PL activity and contained polygalacturonase but not pectinesterase activity. The effect of the inoculum size, the carbon source (sucrose and glucose… CONTINUE READING
