Article

Summary

Extracellular enzyme production byP. capsulatum during solid-state fermentation on beet pulp is maximal at 30°C with initial moisture contents of 60–75% and when growth medium is supplemented with corn steep liquor, ammonium sulphate and yeast extract. On balance, solid-state co-cultures ofP. capsulatum withT. reesei orT. emersonii do not yield greater overall enzyme activity thanP. capsulatum alone.
