Among the lignocellulosic substrates tested, wheat bran supported a high xylanase (EC 3.2.1.8) secretion by Humicola lanuginosa in solid-state fermentation (SSF). Enzyme production reached a peak in 72 h followed by a decline thereafter. Enzyme production was very high (7832 U/g of dry moldy bran) when wheat bran was moistened with tap water at a substrate-to-moistening agent ratio of 1:2.5 (w/v) and an inoculum level of 3 × 106 spores/10 g of wheat bran at a water activity (aw) of 0.95… CONTINUE READING
