IN the course of work on metabolic products of newly isolated moulds from soil, Penicillium aculeatumRaper and Fennell var. apiculatumAbe strain No. 2282 was found to produce a luteic acid-like substance of high viscosity1. The substance consisted of glucose polymerized by glucosidic linkage and malonic acid. As a result of periodate oxidation, almost all the glucosidic linkages of polysaccharide were of the β-1,6 type. Since the molecular weight of the polysaccharide calculated from a result…

Studies on an Enzyme Capable of Splitting β-D-1, 6-Glucosidic Linkage
In the previous paper, it was reported that the higher molecular weight luteose which consisted of β-1,6-linked d-glucose units was made by Pen. aculeatutn var. apiculatum. The isolation of the
β-D-1,6-Glucanase in Streptomyces
ACCORDING to Reese et al.1, β-D-1,6-glucan rarely occurs in Nature, yet many fungi are able to produce an enzyme capable of hydrolysing it. Production of β-D-1,6-glucanase by Streptomyces has not

TLDR
It is shown that enzymatic hydrolysis of the β-1,2-glucan is random, a series of β-2-linked oligosaccharides, including sophorose, being formed.
On a New Type of Mucilaginous Material, Luteic Acid, Produced from Glucose by Penicillium luteum Zukal
The Penicillium luteum — P. purpurogenum group of species of Penicillium described by Thom (1915), contains a number of species and strains, with a strain of P. luteum Zukal, at the one end of the
