Abstract

Summary: Glucose repressed the synthesis of 1,3-β-glucanase in . The production of enzyme during growth in glucose-supplemented medium was negligible, but if deprived of carbon source the fungus actively synthesized high levels of enzyme when growth ceased. Similar results were obtained for 1,6-β-glucanase but less enzyme was produced. A different pattern of production of these enzymes was found in and . The enzymes were produced in glucose-supplemented medium with increasing specific activity during growth. Resting cells deprived of glucose either failed to produce β-glucanases or produced them in smaller quantities.
