Abstract [en]

Fusarium oxysporum F3 exhibited hemicellulolytic enzymic activity when grown on sugar beet pulp, a by-product of the sugar industry. The growth medium was specifically optimised for enhanced production of extracellular arabinanase. The optimum medium contained sugar beet pulp (4%, w/v) and corn steep liquor (6%, v/v) as carbon and nitrogen sources, respectively. Arabinanase activity as high as 0.25 U/ml of culture was obtained, which compared favourably to those reported for other microorganisms. Optimal arabinanase activity was observed at pH 6-7 and 50 °C. Investigation of the degradation of the main components of sugar beet pulp showed that arabinose containing polysaccharides and pectin were first degraded, followed by the glucose-containing polysaccharides.
