Abstract:

Fungi are commonly used in biotechnological and environmental processes through exploitation of their natural catalytic activities. One such fungal activity is to degrade lignocellulosic biomass by producing certain extracellular enzymes. In this study an indigenous white rot fungus SMT 29 isolated from compost sample was used under submerged conditions for lignocellulolytic enzyme production. The process for lignocellulolytic enzyme production was improved by optimizing certain physical and nutritional parameters. In the present study, enzyme production by the fungus was substantially improved to 0.086 IU/ml (FPase), 0.015 IU/mL (CMCase), 10.5 IU/mL (Lac), 65.2 IU/mL (LiP) and 6 IU/mL (MnP) at 30℃, 6 pH, on 7th day of incubation with 200 mg/L CMC powder (in Mery Mendels broth, for cellulolytic activity) and 200 mg/L alkali lignin (in Malt extract agar broth for ligninolytic activity) as carbon source and 0.5 g/L ammonium sulfate in as nitrogen source.
