  The rutin degrading enzyme was secreted by Fusarium croockwellen MTCC-2084 in liquid culture medium which was specific for releasing the disaccharide rutinose from the rutin with no release of glucose, rhamnose and isoquercetin. The conversion of rutin to quercetin was optimal at pH 5.0 and 65º C temperature in the presence of 0.5% dimethyl sulfoxide. The crude enzyme does not hydrolyzed hesperidin and naringin. On the basis of these result it was concluded that the crude enzyme from F. croockwellen MTCC -2084 is hydrolyzed rutin in to quercetin and rutinose which is rare bioactive compounds.
