|Title:||Purification and properties of an extracellular pectin lyase produced by the strain of Penicillium oxalicum in solid-state fermentation|
Shastri, N V
|Abstract:||A pectin lyase (PNL, EC 188.8.131.52) produced extracellularly by the strain of Penicillium oxalicum in solid-state fermentation medium containing deoiled mandarin orange peel meal was purified to apparent homogeneity by a protocol that included ammonium sulfate precipitation, DEAE-Sephadex A-50 and Sephadex G-100 chromatography. The enzyme had molecular mass of 50 kD, as determined by SDS- PAGE and showed optimum pH and temperature at 8.0 and 50ºC respectively. It had an isoelectric point (pI) of 5.0 and showed a Km of 1.1 mg/ml of citrus pectin. The enzyme was strongly inhibited by Mo⁴⁺, Ag⁺ and Pb²⁺ and also by polyphenolic compounds, in particular tannic acid.|
