Title
Application of factorial and Doehlert designs for optimization of protopectinase production by a Geotrichum klebahnii strain
Abstract

Two successive factorial designs followed by two response surface methodology were applied to optimize protopectinase production by Geotrichum klebahnii. Factorial designs were used to study the effect of 11 variables (mineral pool and pH) on enzyme production. Only pH and Fe2+ had significant effect on the protopectinase production in the conditions of the assay, the interaction between them not being significant. According to this result pH and Fe2+ were multivariate according to a Doelhert design. The central points were pH 3.5 and Fe2+ 1.8 μmol L−1. The results show a negative effect of pH and a positive (quadratic) effect of Fe2+ on enzyme production. The second Doelhert design was centered at pH 3.3. A relative maximum was obtained at pH 2.8 and Fe2+ 0.540 μmol L−1, where the enzyme activity obtained was 236 U/mL. This value is two times higher than the value reported elsewhere.
