Cellobiose dehydrogenases (CDH) were purified from cellulose-grown cultures of the fungi Phanerochaete chrysosporium and Humicola insolens. The pH optimum of the cellobiose-cytochrome c oxidoreductase activity of P. chrysosporium CDH was acidic, whereas that of H. insolens CDH was neutral. The absorption spectra of the two CDHs showed them to be typical hemoproteins, but there was a small difference in the visible region. Limited proteolysis between the heme and flavin domains was performed to… CONTINUE READING
