Scholarcy highlights

  • Β-Exoglucanase production on the lignocellulosic material, wheat bran, by Aspergillus niger under solid state fermentation on a laboratory scale was investigated
  • Moisture content of 40 %, pH of 7.0, substrate depth of 1.0 cm, inoculum size of 2 × 106 spores/g of wheat bran, and temperature at 30 °C were optimal for maximum production of exoglucanase
  • Maximum yields of exoglucanase with 28.60 FPU/g of wheat bran were obtained within 3 days of incubation under optimal conditions
  • Panagiotou G, Kekos D, Macris BJ, Christakopoulos P Production of cellulolytic and xylanolytic enzymes by Fusarium oxysporum grown on corn stover in solid state fermentation
