Abstract

RIBEIRO, Liliane Fraga Costa et al. Thermostability of xylanolytic enzymes produced by Lentinula edodes UFV70. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2012, vol.43, n.1, pp. 201-204. ISSN 1517-8382.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-83822012000100021.

Xylanolytic enzymes produced by Lentinula edodes UFV70, cultivated in eucalyptus sawdust/rice bran medium, were stable at 50, 60 and 65ºC for 21 hours, losing only 15-25% activity. Fungus incubation at 50ºC for 12 hours and at 65ºC for 24 hours increased the amount of xylose produced.

Keywords : xylanase; thermostability; Lentinula edodes; xylose.
