Abstract

BACKGROUND: The rapid development of the rice wine industry has increased the demand for raw materials worldwide. A fungal strain with good adaptability to rice wine brewing conditions, which can also enhance the utilization rate of raw materials (URRM), thus increasing the production efficiency, was sought in the present research. RESULTS: The strain FJMR24 was successfully isolated and screened from 35 fermentation starters and exhibited high amylase activity (2200.9 ± 18.5 U g-1 ) and high glucoamylase activity (2330.4 ± 31.9 U g-1 ). Based on a morphological examination and a sequence analysis of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) gene and β-tubulin gene, FJMR24 was identified as Mona..
