Abstract:

Filamentous fungi are very promising for the productions of many products in special amylases are used in several industrial areas. The aim of this work was filamentous fungus isolation from Caatinga characterized soil, and evaluation of the biotechnological potential to amylase production. The Caatinga soil was characterized containing high level of Calcium, followed Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium and Phosphorus, and absence of Aluminium. The fungus isolated from Caatinga soil was identified as Aspergillus sp., code UCP 1261. The diffusion test to amylase production showed influence of pH 6 and temperature on the production of amylase production in solid by A. tamarii. The results showed that the sample identified was Aspergillus tamarii UCP 1261 showed a higher halo (68mm) of amylase at 37ºC, pH 6 and 72h.These results described the biotechnological potential of filamentous fungi A. tamarii isolated from Caatinga biome soil isolated from Caatinga biome soil as promising strain for the production of amylase.


Keywords: Filamentous fungus, Diffusion test, Caatinga soil, Fungus identification.
