Glucose oxidase (GOx) belongs to oxido-reductase class of enzyme produced by few fungal strains and insects. Glucose oxidase has several applications in food, pharmaceutical and biotechnological industries. Glucose oxidase is widely used in diagnostics and biosensors in determining glucose levels. Current study focussed on cost effective production, purification and characterization of glucose oxidase isolated from fungal strain Aspergillus niger grown on palm jaggery. Extracellular fungal proteins were fractionated using cation exchange column chromatography and purified glucose oxidase activity was tested with modified benzoquinone activity assay. Approximately 560 IU/ml of glucose oxidase activity was observed using 1% palm jaggery as primary carbon source in submerged fermentation.
