Abstract

Strains of (i) Streptomyces fradiae, SCF-5 and (ii) S. cinnamonensis, MFS-4 capable of producing glucose isomerase were isolated from farm composts and agricultural fields. These were allowed to grow in the prescribed medium at 28-30 degree C for 4 days. They produced glucose isomerase ranging from 219 to 1348 units/g dry cells. The enzyme was cell bound and its activity was max. at pH 7-8 and at 60-80 degree C. The capacities of (i) and (ii) cell suspensions to convert glucose to fructose were tested in 20 ml of the reaction mixture. Enzyme from (i) effected greater conversion of glucose to fructose at 60 degree C during 24 h than (ii). The fructose syrup after decolorization, deionization and flash evaporation yielded a clear syrup with 65-70% DM content.
