Foaming and enzyme activity in fungal cultures grown on sugar beet cosette

  • S. S. Sukan
  • A. Güray


Enzyme synthesis, foaming behaviour and its effects were studied using two common cellulolytic fungi;Trichodermareesei andSporotrichum pulverulentum in a medium containing sugar beet cosette as a cellulosic substrate. Cellulase enzyme activities in the culture broth were found to be higher than the enzyme activities in natural and experimentally forced foam layers.
