The gene xylE encoding endo-1,4-β-xylanase from the 10th family of glycosyl hydrolases produced by the mycelial fungus Penicillium canescens has been expressed under the control of the strong promoter of the bgaS gene encoding β-galactosidase from P. canescens. As a result, a strain-producer of endoxylanase XylE was developed. The recombinant enzyme was(More)
The genes inuA and inu1, encoding two inulinases (32nd glycosyl hydrolase family) from filamentous fungi Aspergillus niger and A. awamori, were cloned into Penicillium canescens recombinant strain. Using chromatographic techniques, endoinulinase InuA (56 kDa, pI 3) and exoinulinase Inu1 (60 kDa, pI 4.3) were purified to homogeneity from the enzymatic(More)
Using chromatography on different matrixes, three beta-glucosidases (120, 116, and 70 kDa) were isolated from enzymatic complexes of the mycelial fungi Aspergillus japonicus, Penicillium verruculosum, and Trichoderma reesei, respectively. The enzymes were identified by MALDI-TOF mass-spectrometry. Substrate specificity, kinetic parameters for hydrolysis of(More)
Increase in the level of amylolytic genes activator protein encoded by amyR gene was shown to result in enhancement of glucoamylase productivity of A. awamori strain by 30%. However, the same effect equal to 30% increase can be achieved by introduction of extra copies of gla gene encoding glucoamylase. These two effects were not additive, which gave the(More)
Genes of β-mannosidase 97 kDa, GH family 2 (bMann9), β-mannanase 48 kDa, GH family 5 (bMan2), and α-galactosidase 60 kDa, GH family 27 (aGal1) encoding galactomannan-degrading glycoside hydrolases of Myceliophthora thermophila C1 were successfully cloned, and the recombinant enzymes were purified to homogeneity and characterized. bMann9 displays only(More)
The gene egl3 of the filamentous fungus Penicillium canescens endo-1,4-beta-glucanase, belonging to family 12 glycosyl hydrolases, was cloned and sequenced. The gene was expressed in P. canescens under the control of the strong promoter of gene bgaS, coding for beta-galactosidase of this fungus, and efficient endoglucanase producer strains were obtained.(More)
A heterologous gene expression system was created in a domestic Aspergillus awamori Co-6804 strain, which is a producer of the glucoamylase gene. Vector pGa was prepared using promoter and terminator areas of the glucoamylase gene, and A. niger phytase, Trichoderma reesei endoglucanase, and Penicillium canescens xylanase genes were then cloned into pGa(More)
Cellobiase (beta-D-glucosidase) with a molecular weight of 100 kDa and pI 5.2 was isolated from the cellulolytic system of Penicillium verruculosum. Kinetic parameters of enzymatic hydrolysis of cellobiose, gentiobiose, sophorose, and synthetic substrates, i.e. methylumbelliferyl and p-nitrophenyl sugar derivatives were determined. Glucose and(More)
An enzyme preparation has been produced on the basis of Penicillium canescens strains with the activity of cellibiohydrolase I, II; endo-1,4-β-gluconase of Penicillium verruculosum; and β-glucosidase of Aspergillus niger. It was shown that for the most effective hydrolysis of aspen wood pulp the optimal ratio of cellobiohydrolase and endo-1,4-β-gluconase in(More)
Here we report the first isolation to homogeneous forms of two glucoamylases from the fungus Penicillium verruculosum and their study in comparison with known glucoamylases from Aspergillus awamori and Aspergillus niger. Genes that encode glucoamylases from P. verruculosum were cloned and expressed in the fungus Penicillium canescens, and the recombinant(More)
