Penicillium purpurogenum produces several xylanases: purification and properties of two of the enzymes.
The fungus Penicillium purpurogenum produces several extracellular xylanases. The two major forms (xylanases A and B) have been purified and characterized. After ammonium sulfate precipitation andExpand

Differences in expression of two endoxylanase genes (xynA and xynB) from Penicillium purpurogenum.
A number of xylanolytic microorganisms secrete to the medium several molecular forms of endoxylanases. The physiological function of these isoforms is not clear; one possibility is that they areExpand

An α-l-arabinofuranosidase from Penicillium purpurogenum: production, purification and properties
Penicillium purpurogenum secretes arabinofuranosidase to the growth medium. Highest levels of enzyme (1.0 U ml−1) are obtained when l-arabitol is used as carbon source, while 0.85 and 0.7 U ml−1 areExpand

Structure analysis of the endoxylanase A gene from penicillium purpurogenum.
Penicillium purpurogenum produces several endoxylanases, two of which (XynA and XynB) have been purified and characterized. XynB has been sequenced, and it belongs to glycosyl hydrolase family 11. InExpand

Penicillium purpurogenum produces a family 1 acetyl xylan esterase containing a carbohydrate-binding module: characterization of the protein and its gene.
At least three acetyl xylan esterases (AXE I, II and III) are secreted by Penicillium purpurogenum. This publication describes more detailed work on AXE I and its gene. AXE I binds cellulose but notExpand

Secretion of endoxylanase A from Penicillium purpurogenum by Saccharomyces cerevisiae transformed with genomic fungal DNA.
Saccharomyces cerevisiae was transformed with a genomic library from Penicillium purpurogenum, and an endoxylanase-producing yeast clone (named 44A) that grows on xylose or xylan as sole carbonExpand

Acetyl xylan esterase II from Penicillium purpurogenum is similar to an esterase from Trichoderma reesei but lacks a cellulose binding domain
Penicillium purpurogenum produces at least two acetyl xylan esterases (AXE I and II). The AXE II cDNA, genomic DNA and mature protein sequences were determined and show that the axe 2 gene containsExpand

Cloning, sequencing and expression of the cDNA of endoxylanase B from Penicillium purpurogenum.
The cDNA for xylanase B from Penicillium purpurogenum was cloned and sequenced. This DNA encodes a protein of 208 amino acids which is expected to yield a protein of 183 residues upon processing ofExpand

Characterization of an alpha-L-arabinofuranosidase gene (abf1) from Penicillium purpurogenum and its expression.
An alpha-L-arabinofuranosidase gene (abf1) from Penicillium purpurogenum was identified and sequenced. abf1 has an open reading frame of 1518 bp, does not contain introns and codes for a protein ofExpand
