Abstract

During growth in liquid culture containing a single cellulosic or non-cellulosic carbon source, a newly isolated strain of released cellulases into the medium; the amounts produced depended on the nitrogen source, the type and concentration of the carbon source, pH and temperature. Extracellular cellulolytic activity was still increasing after incubation for 60 d with 1 % (w/v) CF11 cellulose, (NH)SO as nitrogen source and a starting pH of 7. The activities of the new isolate were compared with those of IMI 143864 and QM6a (ATCC 13631) and it was shown to be a good producer of -glucosidase.
