Value optimization of medium components for optimum L-asparaginase production by Pseudomonas sp. K2: An application of box-benken designAuthor(s): Kumar Gaurav, Rakesh Kumar
The present study aimed at understanding the effect of important process variables for L- asparaginase production fromPseudomonas sp. K2 using Box-Behnken design of response surfacemethodology.Maximumenzyme production (0.99 IU/ml) was obtained with medium constituents of temperature 37ï°C, pH 9.0 and asparagine concentration at 2%. Good fit of experimental data to themodelwas obtained with p value of 0.0152 and R2, 88.16%.Alowdifference (11%) between experimental and observed values validates the reliability of model prediction. Five fold increase in enzyme production by this microbial isolate was noted under optimized environment.
