SCREENING OF MULBERRY YEAST FOR THE PRODUCTION OF OC-AMYLASE AND ETHANOLG.M. VIDYASAGAR, K. BYALE GUNDAMMA AND D. KOTRESHA
Twenty isolates of yeast were isolated from the leaves of twenty mulberry varieties and used them for the production of cc-amylase and ethanol. Maximum production of cc-amylase was recorded in isolates. MY-1 (3.84 U /m1), MY-5 (1.60 U/ml) and MY-6 (1.22 U/ml) at 30°C in yeast extract triptone medium. Isolates MY-20 (2.77%) MY-11 (2.72%) and MY-1 (2.52%) produced maximum ethanol on 7h1 day of incubation in Jaggery medium. Among the isolates, isolate MY-1 found to be superior for both cc-amylase and ethanol production. However, isolates MY-20 and MY-11 were found superior for only ethanol production.
