General information

Laboratory of Enzymology was founded in 1997 by the Institute of Microbiology of ASM as a result of restructuration of Cellulolytic microorganisms Laboratory and in response of the massive theoretical and practical implications of the enzymes.

The principal directions of scientific researches:

- Fundamental - study of regulation mechanisms of synthesis of hydrolytic enzymes by micromycetes; study of enzymes’ peculiarities and of their functional importance;
- Applicative - the screening of producers of exocellulare enzymes with practical importance; increasing and stabilization of biosynthetical capacity of microorganisms used as biotechnologic objects; elaboration of advanced biotechnologies of enzymes’ obtaining

8 scientific researchers activate in the laboratory, including 5 PhDs in biology. The laboratory serves as a didactic base for students and master students specialized in microbiology and biotechnology from biological faculties of University of Academy of Sciences of Moldova and Moldova State University. The laboratory is involved in formation of highly qualified didactic staff.

On laboratory subjects 4 PhD theses in biology were presented:
• "Physiological-biochemical particularities of cultivation of some fungal strains, producers of lipolytic enzymes", 03.00.07 - Microbiology (2004)
• "Biotechnology of cultivation of Pleurotus ostreatus mushroom and obtaining of valuable bioproducts", 03.00.23: Biotechnology (2005)
• "Selection of some fungal strains that produce pectolytic enzymes and optimization of development and biosynthesis conditions", 03.00.07 - Microbiology "(2006)
• "Biotechnologies of cultivation of Aspergillus niger CNMN 33-19 FD 02 strain, producer of amylases", 03.00.23 Biotechnology (2011)
