Three specific xyloglucanases (XGs) were isolated from Aspergillus japonicus (32 kDa, pI 2.8), Chrysosporium lucknowense (78 kDa, pI 3.8) and Trichoderma reesei (75-105 kDa, pI 4.1-4.3). The characteristic feature of these enzymes was their high specific activity toward tamarind xyloglucan, whereas the activity against carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) and(More)
An extremely highly active cellobiohydrolase (CBH IIb or Cel6B) was isolated from Chrysosporium lucknowense UV18-25 culture filtrate. The CBH IIb demonstrated the highest ability for a deep degradation of crystalline cellulose amongst a few cellobiohydrolases tested, including C. lucknowense CBH Ia, Ib, IIa, and Trichoderma reesei CBH I and II.

Using different chromatographic techniques, eight cellulolytic enzymes were isolated from the culture broth of a mutant strain of Chrysosporium lucknowense: six endoglucanases (EG: 25 kD, pI 4.0; 28 kD, pI 5.7; 44 kD, pI 6.0; 47 kD, pI 5.7; 51 kD, pI 4.8; 60 kD, pI 3.7) and two cellobiohydrolases (CBH I, 65 kD, pI 4.5; CBH II, 42 kD, pI 4.2). Some of the(More)
Six xylan-hydrolyzing enzymes have been isolated from the preparations Celloviridin G20x and Xybeten-Xyl, obtained earlier based on the strain 1 Trichoderma longibrachiatum (Trichoderma reesei) TW-1. The enzymes isolated were represented by three xylanases (XYLs), XYL I (20 kDa, pI 5.5), XYL II (21 kDa, pI 9.5), XYL III (30 kDa, pI 9.1); endoglucanase I (EG(More)
Twenty-eight enzymes, encoded by different genes and secreted by different mutant strains of Chrysosporium lucknowense, were subjected to MALDI-TOF MS peptide fingerprinting followed by analysis of the MS data using the GlycoMod tool from the ExPASy proteomic site. Various N-linked glycan structures were discriminated in the C. lucknowense proteins as a(More)
