Abstract

Isolation, Purification and Characterization of Fungal Extracellular L-Asparaginase from Mucor hiemalis

L-asparaginase is an enzyme that deaminates the free L-asparagine to yield aspartic acid and is used as an antileukemic agent. L-asparaginase producing fungus was screened from a local soil sample and identified as Mucor hiemalis based on morphological and microscopic characteristics.

Keywords: Mucor hiemalis; L- asparaginase;Non metalloprotein; Lectinagarose column; Antioxidant
