Phanerochaete chrysosporium is the best studied organism with respect to lignin degradation, but its degradation of the xylan component of lignocellulose is only now being studied. When grown on oat spelt xylan (mainly arabinoxylan), it produces an enzyme with beta-D-xylosidase and beta-D-glucosidase activity. This enzyme was purified by ultrafiltration followed by ammonium sulphate precipitation, anion-exchange chromatography using DEAE Biogel and Mono Q, and gel filtration using Superose 12… CONTINUE READING
