Exo-Polygalacturonase (Exo-PG) produced from a newly isolated Aspergillus niger AUMC 4156 in fermentation media containing sugar beet pulp as a sole carbon source was separated and purified by filtration, ammonium sulfate precipitation, dialysis, cold acetone precipitation and sephadex G-200 gel filtration chromatography. The specific activity of the purified enzyme increased from 0.88 to 5.75 U/ml, with an overall recovery rate of 23% of the crude enzyme. The optimum temperature and PH values for the function of the purified enzyme were 45 o C and 4.0, respectively. Thermal and P H stability of the purified Exo- PG indicated that it was almost stable at 30 o C and 40 o C for up to 3.5 and 1.0 h respectively. Also, it was stable at acidic PH (3-6) but its stability decreased at higher P H values. The Km and Vmax.values of Exo-PG were 1.0 mg/ml and 6.9 u mole galacturonic acid/min/mg protein respectively.
