Summary: A gene which encodes a 35 kDa protein with both carboxymethylcellulase and xylanase activity was cloned from FD-1 and the nucleotide sequence determined. The FD-1 gene, , and the gene, which encodes a cellodextrinase, were used as probes to analyse transcription in grown under different conditions. Transcription of both genes was induced when cellulose was added to cells growing in cellobiose. This induction continued after cellulose depletion and after cell division had ceased. Transcription of both genes was also induced by cellotriose, although the effect was not as pronounced as induction by cellulose and was greater for the gene than for the gene.
