Relationship Between Reactive Oxygen Species and Emodin Production in Aspergillus ochraceus
Content of emodin, enzyme activity of SOD, enzyme activity of CAT and content of ROS were investigated simultaneously in fermentation process of Aspergillus ochraceus LP_318 and LP_276 in order to reveal relationship between Reactive Oxygen Species and emodin production for speculating the mechanism of high-yield emodin from Aspergillus ochraceus LP_318. The result showed that emodin was identified as an antioxidation in vivo and an explosion of ROS which was found from 36 to 84 h in LP_318 stimulated to produce emodin efficiently with deficiency in enzyme activity of SOD in LP_318.
