Stachybotrys microspora is a filamentous fungus characterized by the secretion of multiple hydrolytic activities (cellulolytic and non-cellulolytic enzymes). The production of these biocatalysts was studied under submerged culture using glucose, cellulose, and wheat bran as carbon sources. Endoglucanases, pectinases, xylanases, β-glucanases, chitinases, and(More)
The production profile of cellulases of the mutant strain A19 from the filamentous fungus Stachybotrys microspora was studied in the presence of various carbon sources (glucose, lactose, cellulose, carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), and wheat bran) and a range of medium initial pH (5, 7, and 8). Two extracellular cellulases from the Stachybotrys strain(More)
The filamentous fungus Stachybotrys sp has been shown to possess a rich β-glucosidase system composed of five β-glucosidases. One of them was already purified to homogeneity and characterized. In this work, a second β-glucosidase was purified and characterized. The filamentous fungal A19 strain was fed-batch cultivated on cellulose, and its extracellular(More)
A new fungal cellulose binding domain (CBD) from Stachybotris sp. has been cloned. Multiple sequence alignment of the CBD from 34 fungi shows highest sequence identity at the ends of the domains. The two primers from these regions were amplified by PCR giving a 120-bp product. Two of these, from Trichoderma sp. and Stachybotris sp. were subsequently cloned,(More)
