metadata.artigo.dc.description.abstract: To examine tThe optimal conditions of cultivation for Cladosporium cladosporioides to produce and partially purify pectin methylesterase (PME) and polygalacturonase (PG) were examined under laboratory conditions . Activities of PME and PG were evaluated after 10, 15 and 20 days of incubation at 28°C in rice solid medium. Enzyme extraction was carried out by homogenization in buffer solutions at different pH (4, 5 and 6) followed by precipitation with ammonium sulfate [(NH4)2SO4] at 20, 40 and 60% saturation. After 10 days of incubation, the highest activities for PG (105.5 U/mL) and PME (1480 U/mL) in the crude extract was observed. Benzoate buffer (pH 4.0) was the best buffer for enzymes extraction. The final yield of 108.7% for PME and 10.6% for PG and a purification index of 14.2 and 1.4 for PME and PG, respectively, was obtained after saturation with 60%. The ideal conditions for obtained and pre-purification of PME and PG were 10 days of incubation, extraction with benzoate buffer pH 4.0 and precipitation with 60% of (NH4)2SO4. This is the first report on of pectinases pectinolytic enzymes produced by from C. cladosporioides and provides information about growth conditions for production and pre-purification of PME and PG.
