Title: beta-galactosidase by Erwinia aroideae grown in cheese whey
Author: Flores, SH
Alegre, RM
Abstract: Production of intra and extracellular beta-galactosidase by Erwinia aroideae grown in cheese whey was studied. Preliminary experiments in erlenmeyers and desproteinized cheese whey showed the optimal lactose concentration of 5.5% when the lactase activity achieved 434.10 UI/ml and celllular dried mass 1.90 g/l for 12 hours culture. Optimals temperature and pH for ONPG (o-nitrophenil beta-D-galactopyranoside) hidrolysis was 45 degrees C and 7.5, respectively. Medium culture suplementation with aspararagine (8 g/l) caused an increase of 15% in intracellular enzyme activity and 202% in extracellular enzyme activity. Fermentation experiments were carried out in 6 liters fermenter; it was used integral and desproteinized cheese whey under temperatures of 25, 27, 30, 32 e 35 degrees C, 350 rpm and 1 vvm for 12 hours culture. The production of extracellular enzyme was greater at 30 degrees C and the largest production of intracellular enzyme was obtained at 32 degrees C. Glucose in culture medium caused enzyme carbon catabolite repression.
