Tannase production by Aspergillus aculeatus DBF9 through solid-state fermentation

Acta Microbiol Immunol Hung. 2007 Jun;54(2):159-66. doi: 10.1556/AMicr.54.2007.2.6.


Tannase an industrially important enzyme was produced by Aspergillus aculeatus DBF9 through a solid-state fermentation (SSF). The organism produced good amount of enzyme and gallic acid in wheat bran among the solid substrate used in SSF. Maximum enzyme and gallic acid production occurred in 5% tannic acid after 72 h. Eighty percent initial substrate moisture and 30 degrees C temperature was found suitable for tannase production.
