Effect of Nitrogen and Phosphate Sources on the Biosynthesis of β-Fructofuranosidase

Mirza Ahsen Baig, Kiran Shafiq, Shazia Mirza, Sikander Ali and Ikram-ul-Haq    

Abstract: Saccharomyces species GCA-II was used to investigate the effect of mineral constituents on the production of β -fructofuranosidase in submerged fermentation. Different organic nitrogen and phosphate sources in varied concentrations were tested for optimal production of enzyme. The results indicated that enzyme production increased from 107.42 to 168.58 U ml-1. Thus, Saccharomyces strain GCA-II gave maximal β -fructofuranosidase in submerged fermentation when urea (3.0 g l-1) as a nitrogen source and K2HPO4 (0.20 g l-1) as phosphate source was supplied in fermentation medium.
