Biochemistry and molecular biology of exocellular fungal β‐(1,3)‐ and β‐(1,6)‐glucanases
TLDR
This review considers what is known in molecular terms about exocellular β-glucanases about their multiplicity of occurrence, regulation of synthesis and phylogenetic diversity and discusses how this information assists in understanding their functions in the fungi producing them.
Noncellulolytic fungal beta-glucanases: their physiology and regulation.
The occurrence, regulation, and action of fungal enzymes capable of degrading noncellulosic beta-glucans, especially 1,3-beta- and 1,6-beta-glucans, are reviewed. Special consideration is given to
Amaricoccus gen. nov., a gram-negative coccus occurring in regular packages or tetrads, isolated from activated sludge biomass, and descriptions of Amaricoccus veronensis sp. nov., Amaricoccus
TLDR
Three isolates of gram-negative bacteria obtained in pure culture by micromanipulation from activated sludge biomass from wastewater treatment plants in Italy, Australia, and Macau were obtained and were sufficiently different from their closest phylogenetic relatives to be placed in a new genus, Amaricoccus gen. nov.
Purification and characterization of an extracellular (1 --> 6)-beta-glucanase from the filamentous fungus Acremonium persicinum.
TLDR
An endo-(1 --> 6)-beta-glucanase has been isolated from the culture filtrates of the filamentous fungus Acremonium persicinum and purified by (NH4)2SO4 precipitation followed by anion-exchange and gel-filtration chromatography, indicating that the enzyme acts with retention of configuration.
Sites of exudation of 14C-labelled compounds from wheat roots.
Summary The combination of autoradiography and a filter paper ‘sandwich’technique using wheat plants labelled with 14C has shown that roots of wheat exude two types of compounds, viz. (a)
Biochemistry and molecular biology of exocellular fungal beta-(1,3)- and beta-(1,6)-glucanases.
TLDR
This review considers what is known in molecular terms about exocellular beta-glucanases about their multiplicity of occurrence, regulation of synthesis and phylogenetic diversity and discusses how this information assists in understanding their functions in the fungi producing them.
Effect of pH on exocellular riboflavin production byEremothecium ashbyii
SummaryThe production of riboflavin byEremothecium ashbyii grown in a chemically defined medium in batch culture was affected by pH of the medium. Highest yields were obtained at constant pH of 4.5
