Go to PosterPresentations.com and click on the FB icon Screening of tannase-producing fungi isolated from tannin-rich sources Tannase (tannin acyl hydrolase; EC ) is one of hydrolases and is known to catalyze the breakdown of ester and depside bonds from hydrolysable tannins and gallic acid esters. This enzyme is known to display two different activities. The first one is an esterase activity; by which it can hydrolyze ester bonds of gallic acid esters with glucose (galloyl-glucose) or alcohols (e.g. methyl gallate). The second activity is called depsidase activity; by which it can hydrolyze depside bonds of digallic acid (Haslam and Stangroom, 1966; Sharma et al., 2000). Tannase is an industrially important enzyme. It has several applications in foods, animal feeds, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, chemical,leather industries etc. (Aguilar and Gutierrez-Sanchez,2001). Tannase can be obtained from plants, animals, and microbial sources. Microorganisms are considered as the most important and commercial sources of tannase, that is because the produced tannases are more stable than similar ones obtained from the other sources. Moreover, microorganisms can produce tannase in high quantities in a constant way. Microbial tannase is favoured also because the microorganisms can be subjected to genetic manipulation more readily than plants and animals, resulting in an increase in tannase production (Aguilar and Gutierrez-Sanchez, 2001; Purohit et al., 2006). Fungi are the most studied microorganisms for tannase production. Fungi have the ability to degrade tannins as a sole carbon source (Aguilar et al., 2007). ABSTRACT A. A. El-Banna*, H. A. Abou-Bakr, M. A. El-Sahn Department of Food Science and Technology, Faculty of Agriculture, Alexandria University, Aflaton St., El-Shatby, P.O. Box 21545, Alexandria, Egypt. Realizing the importance of the enzyme tannase, the present study aimed to isolate and screen high tannase-producing fungi from tannin-rich sources. One hundred and five isolates of tannase- producing fungi were isolated from nineteen tannin-rich sources from local environment in Egypt. Isolates were identified and primary screened using tannic acid agar plate method. Eleven fungal cultures were chosen as the best tannase producers. These fungal cultures were subjected to quantitative secondary screening for tannase production using submerged fermentation technique. Accordingly, four fungal cultures which exhibited the highest tannase activity were chosen to undergo final screening. A fungal culture, isolated from tannery soil sample, was considered as the most promising and identified as Aspergillus niger Van Tieghem. Tannase produced by the fungus was mainly extracellular with negligible intracellular tannase and considered as inducible enzyme. INTRODUCTION Figure 1: Aspergillus niger Van Tieghem colony surrounded by a hydrolytic clear zone. (Fungus grown on TAA medium at 30º C for 96h) REFERENCES CONTACTS RESULTS AIM OF INVESTIGATION Media Tannic acid agar medium (TAA) was used for the isolation of tannase- producing fungi and for the primary screening of fungal isolates (Pinto et al., 2001).The modified Czapek-Doxs minimal medium was used for secondary and final screening of fungi (Bradoo et al., 1996). Screening and selection of tannase-producing fungal cultures Fungal cultures which exhibited the highest tannase activity in the primary screening were subjected to secondary screening using submerged fermentation technique described by Bradoo et al. (1996) and Batra and Saxena (2005). Tannase activity was assayed using the spectrophotometric method of Sharma et al. (2000). Methyl gallate was used as a substrate. The method is based on the chromogen formation between gallic acid and rhodanine. Identification of fungal isolates Simplified key to some selected common genera reported by Barnett and Hunter (1987) was used for identification of isolates to the level of genera. Species of Aspergillus were identified according to the description of Doctor fungus database. The present work aimed to isolate and screen high tannase- producing fungi from tannin-rich sources.

MATERIALS & METHODS Sources for isolation of tannase-producing fungi Nineteen samples collected from various natural sources (9 samples of mouldy tannins-rich plants, 8 samples of soil down tannin-rich plants, a sample of tannery soil and a sample of tannery effluent) were used to isolate tannase-producing fungi. All samples were collected from various locations in Alexandria and El-Beheira Governorates, Egypt. Table 1 Secondary screening of promising fungal isolates selected from the primary screening step.

The experiment was carried out using SmF technique in 250 ml- Erlenmeyer flasks containing 50 ml of modified Czapek-Doxs minimal medium containing either 1% filter sterilized tannic acid or glucose. Fermentation conditions: initial pH, 4.5±0.2; incubation temperature, 30º C; inoculum size 5x10 7 spores /flask; flasks was incubated under intermittent shaking 3 times a day at 200 rpm for 2 min each time. CONCLUSION One hundred and five isolates of tannase-producing fungi isolated from 19 tannin-rich sources were screened to select the most promising one. The promising fungus isolated from tannery soil sample, identified as Aspergillus niger Van Tieghem and capable to produce extracellular and inducible tannase. To the best of our knowledge we report, for the first time, the isolation of tannase- producing fungi from the following plants: Bengal fig fruits; unripe date fruits; guava leaves; persimmon fruits; pomegranate leaves, fruits and peels; river-red gum leaves and green tea. Tannin-rich sources in various countries should be considered as a good source for isolation of tannase-producing microorganisms. A collaborative study is needed.
