Abstract

The microorganisms that inhabit poorly explored and/or extreme ecological niches are potential sources for the discovery of new natural products with specific properties for biotechnological applications. Previous studies related to the Antarctic and marine microbial prospecting revealed the potential of these organisms to the production of active enzymes in salinity conditions or at mild temperatures, which can be applied to various sectors of economic importance, as well as to the degradation of environmental pollutants. Thus, this project aims to continue the studies related to the fungi derived from marine environments from Brazilian coast and terrestrial and marine environments from Antarctic ecosystems, by performing new researches related to the production of enzymes (ligninases, xylanases, lipases, proteases, cellulases and L-asparaginase) and by advancing in the studies related to their characterization, up scaling and technological applications. For that end, the focus of the present study will be filamentous fungi and yeasts that were isolated and selected in projects funded by FAPESP, CNPq and the European Community. These microbial resources are preserved in the research collections associated to the Brazilian Collection of Environment and Industrial Microorganisms (CBMAI) from CPQBA/UNICAMP and to the Central of Microbial Resources from UNESP (CRM-UNESP). The results obtained in this project may derive patents related to the production and application of enzymes in industrial and environmental processes. (AU)
