Screening of local fungal isolates and optimization environmental

 

conditions for kojic acid production from Aspergillus fumigatus and

 

Aspergillus flavus

 

Abstract

Thirty one fungal isolates belong to the two genera Aspergillus and Penicillium. The two local

flingal isolates  Aspergillus fumigatuslA and  A.flavus29 were chosen as the most efficient two

isolates for kojic acid(KA) producrion. The environmental conditions for kojic acid production

ivom Aspergillus fumigatuslA and A.flavus29 were studied and the results showed that incubation in

static conditions at (35 and SOj'C for (18 and 20)days gave the highest production of (KA),

respectively.
