|Title:||Technical viability of the production, partial purification and characterisation of inulinase using pretreated agroindustrial residues|
|Abstract:||The present work aimed to study the viability of the use of sugarcane molasses and corn steep liquor (CSL) in a sequential inulinase production performing an up-stream pretreatment of these agroindustrial residues. A sequential strategy was used applying three central composite rotatable designs (CCRDs) to optimise medium composition, followed by a down-stream step. The medium containing 150 g L(-1) molasses, 50 g L(-1) CSL and 6 g L(-1) yeast extract, yielded a maximum inulinase production of 1,294 +/- A 7 U mL(-1), after 72 h of fermentation. A down-stream evaluation was carried out using an expanded bed of Streamline DAE resin (Pharmacia), with and without the up-stream treatment. The results showed that the enzyme could not be recovered from the non-pretreated medium, whereas a yield of 91% was obtained in the adsorption stage from the medium prepared with the up-stream treatment, showing the viability of producing the enzyme inulinase from agroindustrial residues using the integrated process.|
