The extracellular beta-glucosidase of Trichoderma viride generally is present in low levels when the organism is cultured on cellulose because it is inactivated under the acid conditions which develop in the medium while the other enzymes of the cellulase complex are more stable. With the appropriate pH control, inactivation of beta-glucosidase is prevented and the activity of this enzyme increases during growth. In the saccharification of crystalline cellulose, or of cellulose at low… CONTINUE READING
