Self-directing optimization of β-1,3-glucanase production by Trichoderma harzianum in batch culture

  • 33 Accesses

Abstract

The self-directing optimization technique was employed to determine the optimal conditions for β-1,3-glucanase production by Trichoderma harzianum in batch culture. A maximum β-1,3-glucanase production of 0.910 U was obtained at a pH (controlled) of 4.9, an aeration rate of 0.9 1/(1)(min), and an agitator speed of 220 rev/min which were found to be the most suitable.
