  • SummaryThe cellulase activities of six thermophilic fungi were compared. Although the thermophilic fungi grew at relatively high temperatures (>45°C) the optimum temperatures for assaying the various cellulase activities were only slightly higher than the optimum temperatures for the mesophilic fungi, Trichoderma harzianum. Over prolonged incubation (> 24 h) the thermophilic strains demonstrated a higher hydrolytic potential as a result of the greater thermostability of the cellulase components… CONTINUE READING
