Solid-State Fermentation with Aspergillus niger for Cellobiase Production
Aspergillus niger NRRL3 was cultivated in a moist wheat bran and ground corncob solid medium supplemented with inorganic minerals for the production of cellobiase (β-1, 4-glucosidase, EC 188.8.131.52). With this method, A. niger NRRL3 was able to produce a high concentration of cellobiase (215 IU/g of solid substrate) after 96 h of incubation. Temperature and moisture content affected final cellobiase titers. The best conditions for cellobiase production from solid substrate by A. niger NRRL3 were determined to be 70% moisture and 35°C.
