Abstract

We optimized dextranase culture conditions by batch fermentation using Lipomyces starkeyi KCTC 17343. Furthermore, dextranase was purified by an ultra-membrane, and then dextran hydrolyzates were characterized. Cell growth and dextranase production varied depending on the initial culture pH and temperature. The conditions of optimal dextranase production were met in a pH range of 4-5 and temperature between $25-30^{\circ}C$. At optimal fermentation conditions, total enzyme activity and specific enzyme activity were about 4.85 IU/ml and 0.79 IU/g cells, respectively. The specific growth rate was examined to be $0.076\;hr^{-1}$. The production of dextranase in culture broth was very stably maintained after mid-log phase of growth. The enzyme hydrolyzed dextran into DP (degree of polymerization) 2 to 8 oligodextran series. Analysis of the composition of hydrolysates suggested that the enzyme produced is an endo-dextranase.
