Production of cellulase from Pellicularia filamentosa

Journal Article:

Abstract

In the screening test for cellulase producers from 237 strains of microorganisms, 3 strains of Fusarium sp., 2 strains of Trichoderma sp., and 4 strains of Pellicularia sp. were found to produce a lot of cellulase in their culture filtrates. Of these cellulase producing fungi, Pellicularia filamentosa isolated from diseased cucumber seedlings showed high cellulase activity comparable to that of Trichoderma viride. This preparation was active toward filter paper, avicel, carboxymethyl cellulose, soluble starch, insulin, and p-nitrophenyl ..beta..-D-glucopyranoside. The optimum temperature and pH for the filter paper degrading activity of this crude cellulase were 45/sup 0/C and 5.0, respectively. The filter paper degrading activity was inhibited by Cu/sup + +/, Fe/sup + + +/, N-bromosuccinimide, and sodium dodecyl sulfate.
