HPLC analysis of purified pectinase
sample peak (Fig.
is not a single enzyme but a combination of many enzymes involved in the degradation of plant pectin and cell walls.
Key words: Apple peels, Aspergillusfumigatus, Pectinase
Production and Optimization of Pectinase
from Bacillus sp.
These trials have typically involved the feeding of enzyme cocktails containing various combinations of enzymes including xylanase, [beta]-glucanase, [alpha]-galactosidase, pectinase
, and [beta]-mannanase (Pettey et al.
Solid state production of thermostable pectinases
from thermophilic Thermoascus aurantiacus.
Aspergillus niger (Fluka Chemicals Ltd.
There were four kinds of enzymes in the experiment, named glucoamylase, cellulase, phytase and pectinase
In situ immobilization of commercial pectinase

EC1: Enzyme complex consisting of pectinase
, protease, phytase, betaglucanase, xylanase, cellulase and amylase (0.
Generally, the pectinase
is applied during the maceration pretreatment for reducing the viscosity of fruit mash and the juice produces high yield and nutritive values (14).
