  • Abstract

    The enzyme tannase (tannin acyl hydrolase EC produced from Trichoderma viride (MTCC 167), was purified and characterized. Optimal conditions for the production tannase were determined using varying substrate concentrations Fermentation was carried out for 48 h for optimum enzyme production and the properties of the enzyme were investigated. The optimum conditions of temperature and pH were investigated and the effects of nitrogen sources, metal ions and chelator were studied. Tannase exhibited optimum activity at 45°C and at pH of 5.5 urea concentrations higher than 3 M were inhibitory. Increasing concentrations of sodium also led to decrease in activity. Increasing concentrations of EDTA had an inhibitory effect on tannase. Among the nitrogen sources selected ammonium ferrous sulfate, ammonium sulfate, ammonium nitrate and ammonium chloride enhanced tannase activity at 0.1% (W/V) concentration.
