Abstract

Among carbon sources studied, cellobiose and mannitol provided the highest laccase (Lac) activity (648 and 742 U1-1, respectively) of Trametes versicolor 775 while glucose gave maximum manganese peroxidase (MnP) and peroxidase activities (44 and 114U1-1, respectively). Citrus fruit peel as growth substrate enhanced Lac activity 7-fold when compared to the medium with cellobiose, whereas grape vine sawdust increased MnP and peroxidase activity up to 148 and 677U1-1, respectively.
