A non-cellulase producing strain of Bacillus subtilis and its potential use in pulp biobleaching


A newly isolated strain of Bacillus subtilis produced β-mannanase when cultivated in a medium containing either locust bean gum, konjac mannan or guar gum as a sole carbon source. In contrast, xylanase was produced only when oat spelt xylan or wheat bran was used as a carbon source. The culture supernatant, which contained both β-mannanase and xylanase, was… (More)
