D-amino acid oxidase (DAAO) is biotechnologically relevant enzyme that is used in various food and pharmaceutical industries. DAAO from the yeast Trigonopsis variabilis is an important agent for use in commercial applications because of its high activity with cephalosporin C and is reasonable resistant to the oxidants O2 and H2O2 byproducts of reaction. In this study, response surface methodology (RSM) in shake flask culture was used to enhance the production of DAAO from T. variabilis by

Results of Placket-Burman design showed that DL-alanine, pH, glucose and ZnSO4 were significant factors for DAAO production (P<0.05). The optimum values of media components as predicted by the central composite design were inducer (DL-alanine) concentration 3 g/L, pH 7.7, glucose 17 g/L and ZnSO4 34 mg/L. At these optimum values of media composition, maximum production of DAAO was 153 U/g yeast dry weight. Two-fold increase in DAAO production was achieved after optimization of the physical parameters by RSM.
