Statistical optimization of solid state fermentation conditions for the enhanced production of thermoactive chitinases by mesophilic soil fungi using response surface methodology and their application in the reclamation of shrimp processing by-products

Abstract

The mesophilic strains Aspergillus flavus CFR 10 and Fusarium oxysporum CFR 8 are potent producers of extracellular thermoactive chitinases (endo-chitinase and β-N-acetylhexosaminidase). Chitinases have a wide range of applications in many areas including reclamation of seafood processing chitinous by-products. In the present study, the interactive effects… (More)
