Abstract:

Xylanases show great potential for industrial applications. The extracellular xylanases are considered important from the industrial viewpoint as they ease the extraction procedure. Although a number of xylanase productions were performed using submerged systems, solid state fermentation was found to be more economical mainly due to the cheap and abundant availability of agricultural wastes which can be used as substrates. The present study is an attempt to isolate and identify the fungi and to screen them for the production of  Xylanase using solid-state fermentation from Sirsi region of Western ghats of Karnataka. In the present study paddy straw substrate was used for xylanase production by Humicola lanuginosus, in SSF with the growth of 0.9 mg glucosamine/g substrate and xylanase production of 9.5 U/g substrate. Aspergillus fumigatus produced 0.75 mg glucosamine/g substrate and xylanase production of 7.5 U/g substrate.


Keywords: Fungi, Xylanases, Solid-state fermentation, Paddy straws.
