Abstract

SUMMARY: L(---)Sorbose enhanced the extracellular levels of endoglucanase and filter paper unit activity in culture filtrates of QM9414 cultivated on cellobiose or Avicel cellulose. Addition of sorbose to the culture medium retarded the uptake of cellobiose by the organism; this uptake appeared to be dependent on the surface-bound β-glucosidase. A biochemical mechanism to explain the effect of sorbose on cellulase induction, through its effect on surface-bound β-glucosidase and cellobiose uptake, is proposed.
