In the thermophilic fungus Thermomyces lanuginosus, invertase displays an unusual pattern of development: the induced activity begins to diminish even before any substantial quantity of sucrose has been utilized or an appreciable amount of biomass has been produced. Despite this pattern of invertase activity, neither the growth rate nor the final mycelial yield is affected adversely. T. lanuginosus invertase is a thiol protein and the enzyme is active when specific sulfhydryl group(s) is in the… CONTINUE READING
