    Background: Filamentous fungi are confronted with changes and limitations of their carbon source during growth in their natural habitats and during industrial applications. To survive life-threatening starvation conditions, carbon from endogenous resources becomes mobilized to fuel maintenance...

    The production of enzymes by bioprocesses is a good value added to agro industry residues. A comparative study was carried out on the production of protease using different varieties of Rice brokens (PONNI, IR-20, CR-1009, ADT-36 and ADT-66) from Rice mill wastes as substrates in solid-state...

    Although host proteases are often considered to have a negative impact upon heterologous protein production by filamentous fungi, relatively little is known about the pattern of their appearance in recombinant fungal bioprocesses. In the present study, we investigated extracellular proteases...
