The synthesis of pectinase is investigated using six species of Aspergillus, with five media differing either in their carbon sources or level of carbon source(s). Five of the six species used, synthesized appreciable amounts of pectinase in the media containing sugars. Pectinase synthesis was highest for A. niger, NCIM 548, with all the sugar containing media. A. foetidus, NCIM 510, was the only one among the organisms studied, that responded well to the medium containing pectin in the absence of additional sugars supplied in the medium. © 1995 Springer-Verlag.
